Mr. President , Please Do This For Us Before You Leave

LIKE I have always said, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan of Nigeria is a good man. His administration will be ending on 29th May 2015. But please Sir, before you leave, do everything humanly and spiritually possible to give Nigeria fuel. It will be very sad to do otherwise because Nigerians may still require your service in other higher capacities in the future. So I want History to always see you as a good man that you are.

Sir, kindly disregard Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s antics that hardly jell in this fuel matter. I just cannot understand how she agreed Nigeria owes fuel importers but does not know the exact amount of debt, because the transactions are in rolling nature. For example, about two weeks ago when she had a meeting with the leadership of the fuel importers, she agreed that it was N154 billion that was paid to the importers; but a week earlier she had said N156 billion was paid to them. Ngozi, what exactly did you pay to the importers? On what is now outstanding, the importers are claiming N200 billion, she does not know. Question is: Ngozi, please exactly how much does Nigeria owe the importers? She replied: she cannot state categorically the amount due to the flux nature of the transaction. What an answer!

Please Sir, immediately look for money and settle whatever amount of debt the importers said they are being owed. It will be very honourable not to hand over this debt and the long queues Nigerians have been facing since three weeks now to the incoming government. You are a good and honourable man, doing this singular thing will make history and indeed Nigerians to wholeheartedly forgive you as you requested.
