Mr. President, do this before you leave


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.

Kindly disregard Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and her economic antics that hardly get in on 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 said N156 billion was paid to them. On what is now outstanding, the importers are claiming N200 billion. Question is: how much exactly does Nigeria owe the importers?

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.
• Okachikwu Dibia,
