Nigeria is in a state of disarray, petrol is scarce and there’s no electricity but President Muhammadu Buhari has remained silent.

To make matters worse, the Federal Government has once again started paying petrol subsidies.

According to the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulation Agency (PPPRA), the government will begin to pay N5.84 on every litre of petrol sold from April 1, 2016.

The removal of subsidies by the Buhari administration was one of its most commendable decisions and it showed Nigerians that change was truly on the way.

The step also earned the president praise from leading international publication, The Economist.

“Mr Buhari’s tenure has in some ways been impressive…He has indicated that he will stop subsidising fuel and selling it at below-market prices. This is brave, since the subsidies are popular, even though they have been a disaster (the cheap fuel was often sold abroad and petrol stations frequently ran dry),” The publication wrote in January 2016.

It is therefore confusing that the government has decided to take a step backward in this area by recommencing subsidy payments.

The most confusing aspect of the scenario however, is Buhari’s decision to remain silent despite all the problems plaguing the country.

The president is also the Minister of Petroleum so he is expected to give Nigerians an explanation for all the hardship they’re facing.

Citizens also deserve to know what steps the Buhari administration is taking to ensure that this suffering stops once and for all.

President Buhari, why don’t we have fuel? When are we going to have fuel? How are you making sure this year’s fuel scarcity will be the last? What are your plans?

Dear Mr President, we have placed a lot of confidence and trust in you, this is not the time to operate a stealth mode presidency, we need to know what you’re doing and how you’re doing it.

Dear President Buhari, please what exactly are you doing?

Do you know what Buhari is doing?»
