The sentiment was expressed by the National President of the Arewa Youth Forum (AYF), Gambo Gujungu.
The sentiment was expressed by the group’s National President, Gambo Gujungu.
“As the umbrella body of all Youths in the North and also concerned about the welfare of Nigerians and most especially the youths of the country, we are concerned about the current situation being witnessed in the country by all and sundry,” Gujungu said.
“However, we also want to say that looking at events of the immediate past in the country that culminated in the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, shows that Nigerians wanted change and we all know that change anywhere in the world does not come easy and takes time and sacrifice.
“It is in view of this that we are calling on Nigerians as a whole, the political elite and youths in particular, to exercise patience with President Muhammadu Buhari and his Minister of state for Petroleum, Dr. Kachikwu, to bring the needed change especially in the petroleum sector.
“We have the hope that the Minister means well and his promise was also corroborated by the Group Executive Director (GED)/ Chief Operating Officer (COO) Upstream sector, NNPC, Alhaji Bello Rabiu Babura who said that refineries in Warri and Port Harcourt were now set for adequate fuel supply in the country, insisting that era of shortage of the petroleum product supply will be over soon,” he added.
Minister of Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu had earlier promised that the fuel scarcity would be brought under control by April 7.
