Comrade Samuel Fubara Condemns Hoarding Of Kerosene

A Human Rights Activist, Comrade Fubara Samuel, has condemned the hoarding of Kerosene and other petroleum products by marketers, adding that the common man is suffering because of this.
Speaking to journalist during the matriculation ceremony of the National Open University of Nigeria held recently in Port Harcourt, Comrade Fubara wondered why the marketers of petroleum products should hoard them to cause artificial scarcity when the products are supposed to be available, since they are produced in Nigeria.
He said by perpetrating such corruption, those hoarding these products were only making life uncomfortable for the masses.
“The bad economy is affecting the common man. Originally, the common man is supposed to walk down to NNPC Filling Station at Lagos Bus stop or any other station and buy with jerry can at a subsidized rate. If you have observed for the past two or three weeks now, the filling stations sell kerosene from 5am to 7am to dealers. Dealers buy in large quantity, talking about 20, 30 to 100 jerry cans from 5am in the morning”, he lamented, adding that such a practice makes it difficult for the common man.
The social crusader wondered why the government was not doing anything serious to check the ugly trend despite the cries of the common man.
“Is it that the cries of the common man is not reaching them?” he queried, and called on those perpetrating this corrupt practice to have a change of heart, while also appealing to the government to intervene in order to save the poor masses of the nation. ###
