*Says It’s A Total Failure On The Govt
The Eastern Bar Forum has strongly condemned the Federal Government over the senseless, heartless, unconscionable and rascal increases in the cost of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in the country to #217.60.
This was made know in a Press Statement issued by the Chairman of the Forum, Mr. S. Long Williams Esq.
The Chairman called on the Federal Government to halt the recent increases in the price of Premium Motor Spirit and an immediate reversal to the price regime as at January 2015.
He noted that a government that took over the reins of power in 2015 on the crest of reducing the price of petrol from N87 to N47, reducing the exchange rate of the naira from N190.00 to N1.00 to a dollar, revamping and bringing our four(4) refineries back on steam producing at full capacity has failed on all fronts. There is nothing left for the federal government to cling to.
This is a total failure in governance and for the umpteenth time, the Eastern Bar Forum reiterates its call that the present leaders of the country have no business being in government.
It is a total shame that a society and a people that were living so well just about six years ago have been reduced to pitiable able paupers and beggars, living below the worst poverty index in human history.
Nigerians cannot continue like this. If we don’t stop this government from further ruining our lives, what is coming in the next few months will be unimaginable.
Nigeria is currently going through a plague (worst than the plagues of Egypt) in the guise of governance.
All civil society organizations and professional bodies must synergize to save the Nigerian people from this nightmare.
The Chairman stated clearly and unequivocally that the labour unions and a section of the Press in Nigeria have failed the Nigerian people.
We are bewitched with dead and comatose labour while some sections of the media are belittling the negative and toxic impact of the heartless, wicked, senseless and devilish policies of the present federal government.
Nigerians will not and will never be used to the present rogue prices of petroleum products.
It’s either we take our destinies and the future of our children and children’s children back or we may not live to tell the story and those who may survive may be too ashamed to narrate it.
Nigerians should always remember the words of the African American Civil Rights Activist, Rev. Jesse Jackson when he mused “You may not be responsible for your being knocked down, but you are responsible for getting back up.
