Niger Delta Group Bemoans Hardship Caused by Subsidy Removal, Demands Kyari's Sack

The National President of, the South-South Youths Initiative, Imeabe Saviour has decried the hardship caused by fuel subsidy removal across the country.  

According to him, the removal of the subsidy was sudden and was done without a concrete plan in place. 

Imeable in a statement on Saturday and available to journalists in Abuja also called for the sack of the GMD of NNPCL, Mele Kyari 

The statement read, " We understand that a cabal made of few greedy Nigerians have used the subsidy placed on Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, popularly called Fuel, as a way of enriching themselves and there has been the growing need for the state to withdraw its partial funding on the importation of the product. But, we thought that a well-articulated, thought-out action and reinvestment plans, would have been put in place and same effectively proposed and communicate to the people before any action would have taken effect. 

"While the people were struggling to acclimatize with the increase of PMS to 511/litre, the government again hiked same to 617/litre. This can only happen in a Grave Nation, a dead country, where survival is not a given. We wonder about the true reason people are given the opportunity of leadership; if it is to make selfish policies and misguided actions or to make what can be adjudged as humane and liberal policies.

We have truly observed the failure of this administration to bring the needed peace and development to our people. This is propelled by the existence of people like Mele Kyari, the Group Managing Director of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation Limited, NNPCL, in public space. His failure to play an advisory role has caused serious shame and backlash on this young administration.

Kyari has failed to make justice to his first role of advising the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the right policies to implement and at the right time to do so. We see that he lacks the understanding of what constitutes effective corporate governance for failing to guide Mr. President on the right steps to take. Therefore, we call for his immediate resignation for failing and causing Nigerians pain.

We are calling on Kyari to resign his position immediately for failing to offer good advice to Mr. President. It is because of his actions and inactions that the entire country is in this present hardship. In sane climes, when a public officeholder fails to carry out his functions effectively and the result of such action leads to some negative impact on the people, they willingly resign their position as a mark of showing remorse.

We want Kyria to show this remorse that he has caused millions of Nigerians untold hardship. His resignation is important to Nigerians. We also want him to apologize to Nigerians for his failure to know what his functions are in the office he currently occupies, which includes providing advisory roles to the President.

Nevertheless, should he refuse to heed our call within seven days, we are calling on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to sack him and bring in an experienced technocrat that can drive the visions of this administration in NNPCL, if there is any. Going further we are aware that NNPCL plays a major role in sustaining the security of the nation financially therefore we are calling on the attention of the security agencies not to be allowed to be used by a failed system like NNPCL.

He vowed that members of the group would shut down offices of the NNPCL offices in South-South states if Kyari remains in office in the next seven days.  

He said, "However if the President fails to sack him after he refuses to resign within seven days, we will have no option than shut down offices of NNPCL in the States of South-South. This is not a threat it is a promise we the youths of this nation will implement for the sake of the suffering masses."
