…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media.
Former presidential aide Reno Omokri has expressed his disapproval of individuals who complain about the increase in fuel prices resulting from the removal of fuel subsidy.
He argues that those who previously criticized the foreign debt during President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and now express frustration about fuel prices under President Bola Tinubu’s administration fail to comprehend the cause-and-effect relationship between actions and consequences.
Inability to Have It Both Ways:
Omokri asserts that it is impossible to simultaneously criticize the growth of foreign debt and oppose the rise in fuel prices.
He highlights that a significant portion of the borrowed funds was utilized to sustain the fuel subsidy.
Therefore, in order to avoid an unsustainable debt burden that future generations cannot repay, one must accept the new fuel prices.
Removing Partisan Politics:
The political analyst emphasizes the need to separate partisan politics from fuel pricing, electric power generation, and the Ajaokuta Steel Company.
He argues that addressing these three critical areas is essential for Nigeria to reach its full potential.
While acknowledging that previous administrations, including those of Buhari, Tinubu, and Tunde Bakare, contributed to the current situation, Omokri states that his focus is on rescuing the country rather than seeking revenge.
He believes that appropriate fuel prices are preferable to an inappropriate debt burden.
In a sarcastic tone, Omokri concludes by advising those dissatisfied with the situation to visit Peter Obi’s Next Supermarket, purchase an energy drink, and utilize that energy to walk instead.
His remark implies that complaining without understanding the complexities of the issue serves no purpose and suggests finding practical alternatives instead.
Reno Omokri criticizes individuals who complain about the fuel price hike while lacking an understanding of the consequences.
He highlights the link between borrowed funds and the fuel subsidy, urging acceptance of the new fuel prices to avoid an unsustainable debt burden.
Omokri emphasizes the need to remove partisan politics from critical sectors and prioritizes rescuing the country over seeking revenge.
His sarcastic suggestion highlights the importance of finding practical solutions rather than merely complaining.
