Former Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said the ongoing fuel scarcity resulting in long queues of human and vehicles at fueling stations across the country is a sign the country is heading to the wrong direction.
Bukola Saraki stated this a recorded video posted on his social media account few hours ago.
According to Bukola Saraki, he was on his way to the Airport this afternoon and saw a lot of queues at all the filling stations he drove across.
“The fuel queues across the country show that we are heading in the wrong direction. Hundreds of millions of Nigerian lives are being disturbed. We need a government that has real and long-lasting solutions to these problems. Nigerians cannot keep suffering because they need to fill up their tanks”, Bukola Saraki said.
Bukola Saraki said he knows Nigeria will not benefit from the surge in price of crude oil as he learnt the crude oil is now sold at 138 dollar per barrel.
He urged Nigerians to vote out bad government specifically All Progressives Congress, APC come next election.
Meanwhile, Analysts have predicted that price of crude oil may increase to 150 dollar per barrel if America and other countries ban the purchase of Russian oil.
Reuters reported that Oil prices spiked to their highest levels since 2008 on Monday after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Washington and European allies were considering banning Russian oil imports.
