President Muhammadu Buhari has been told to sack himself as the country’s Minister of Petroleum and Natural Resources.
Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, is asking the President to resign without further delay, having shown clearly that he would not be able to solve the lingering fuel crisis in the country.
In a statement on Friday, the National Coordinator of HURIWA, Emmanuel Onwubiko advised the President to step aside and appoint a substantive Minister of Petroleum for the lingering issues Nigerians are facing.
“Why is the President not stepping down as petroleum minister and then appoint a substantive senior petroleum minister from the pull of some of the finest petroleum Engineers of Nigerian origin working in the advanced societies and locally because this over one-month fuel scarcity that started with the flooding of toxic fuel is a gross failure on the part of the senior minister of petroleum who is also the president which is absurd?” HURIWA asked.
The human rights advocacy group further asked President Buhari to sack his Minister of Power, who it describes as grossly incompetent.
“Also, why is the President not sacking the minister of power who has nothing innovative to offer to improve electricity power supply since coming on board? Is the President happy that university students are at home?” HURIWA added.
“is APC not ashamed that it is holding a national convention and millions of motorists are stranded in filling stations looking for fuel that the dealers distribute to thugs who sell them in the black market?
“The APC should have shame and stop the economic woes. Mr. President please sack yourself as minister of Petroleum. Sack your grossly incompetent minister of power please. Save Nigeria from becoming a basket case Mr. President.”
