Do you care to know that people you call hero’s today are the architects of hardship you and passing through in Nigeria today
Let me tell you unlike Nigeria, to buy petrol in the black market in Benin Republic is cheaper. Petrol costs about N1,000 per litre, but you can get it at N700 per litre in their black market.
This is because when marketers in Nigeria get petrol at about N148 per litre from NNPC, some of them smuggle it through our porous borders to neighbouring countries and sell at between N500 to N600 per litre. Making a super spread.
Since the closure of the borders, Nigeria that consumes about 60 million litres of petrol per day no longer hits 30 million litres per day.
Cause of hardship in Nigeria, the fact is some people have been stealing our petrol, petrol that we subsidize and making a kill.
It is assumed that the amount of petrol smuggled out of Nigeria every day since God knows when averages $3 million daily. What manner of human beings do we have in this country?
These same thieves look down on hardworking Nigerians everyday, they insult the people breaking their backs to earn one Naira.
We as a society are highly culpable too, we have elevated materialism to a height where nobody cares how you make your money.
“If you no get money, hide your face” “if we no buy Benz, wetin we gain”
“If you didn’t investigate my poverty, why are you investigating my wealth”
Parents no longer care where their wards get money from as long as he/she clothes them in riches.
We need a change in our orientation, we need to dignify labour once again.
