The OurMumuDonDo Movement wishes to inform the Nigerian people that it has decided to embark on an organized action against the longest-ever fuel scarcity currently beleaguering the country, with no end in sight.
For more than three months, Nigerians have been hopelessly enduring the deleterious effects of this galloping and dragging fuel crisis which has painfully caused an arbitrary increase in the price of commodities, hike in the cost of transportation, and wastage of man-hours, including sapping the energy of commuters queuing daily at petrol stations.
Despite the inability of the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari who is also the Minister of Petroleum, to fulfill its gazillion of promises to Nigerians, the Nigerian people have sadly and tirelessly kept faith with the present administration, hoping that a solution would be proffered to the crisis, but to no avail.
We are extremely displeased that President Buhari has failed consistently to fulfill his promise of putting an to end to the fuel problem. The deceit and apathy that have been displayed toward the suffering masses by the current administration totally contradict the mandate which Nigerians gave Buhari in 2015.
Since the lingering fuel scarcity has now reached an alarming crescendo of misery and public outcry, we at the OurMumuDonDo Movement have decided to ensure that the President, the Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation, NNPC, and other stakeholders in the oil sector are compelled to find a lasting solution to the current crisis and abate the sufferings of the Nigerian people across the nation.
We cannot accept the deceptive strategy of using propaganda to normalize this scarcity, while Nigerians are buying at cut-throat prices in different states.
Details of the protest are as follows:
Date: Wednesday, 21 February 2017.
Venue: NNPC Towers, Central Business District, Herbert Macaulay Way, Garki, Abuja.
We hereby call on all Nigerians affected by the current fuel scarcity to join us on the aforementioned date to demand an end to the seemingly unending crisis.
