ON PMS @ N97; Lets Move Forward
There is this saying that 'you can't keep doing things the same way and expect a different result'. I think the President has acted like a true leader by heeding to the cries of the people and thereby reverting the pump price downwards by N44 from N141. I know some people might say that the initial N141 was a bait to see the response of the masses and that N97 was the real intended price the Government wanted to tag the price of PMS; however, that's not important.
Whats more important is that the savings from this partial removal of subsidy would enable the President carry out his transformational agenda for the nation. It doesn't matter what the cynics are or might be thinking, what matters is that we should give the President a chance. The better Nigeria we seek is going to be a gradual process and minimal sacrifices as these has to be made. Our paramount aim as the people of this nation should be to pray for our nation and President, that he might be able to fully implement his good-plans for the nation without hindrance and also most importantly, we should not relent in our fight against corruption by ensuring accountability from all our public service holders but in these, lets not forget to check ourselves in our fight against corruption as change can only genuinely start from ourselves.
Ergo, I must state that a peaceful Nigeria cannot be kept by propaganda, it can only be achieved by understanding. On this note, lets understand with the President.
Thank you all.
