NNPC running around filling station to impress Buhari – Ezekwesili

A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said that officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Commission (NNPC) are “running around” fillings stations to impress President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group managing director of NNPC, Maikanti Baru, and some top officials of the corporation had been going to filing stations over the petrol scarcity being experienced in the country.
In a post on Twitter handle, the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group, wondered why the NNPC officials would be straining themselves touring the filling stations.
She also said that rather than make use of market forces in seeking enduring solution to the scarcity, the officials had chosen to impress Buhari against the citizens’ interest.
“Why are officials of government and the NNPC annoyingly running around fuel stations? Is there no one with basic training in economics anymore?
“Why are they straining themselves with the workload that market forces can easily do for them?
“Me: They are running around to enforce price control and impress president .@MBuhari , not the Citizens. They know he hates the words, market forces, deregulation & liberalisation but loves command and control.
“He is clapping his hands for them, but the Citizens are not smiling. #VerySad.”
