Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) has said Nigeria “never made progress” because the same person who was Minister of Petroleum Resources 46 years ago, is also overseeing the Ministry at the moment.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Sowore linked the development to the persistent fuel scarcity in the country.

“Why Nigeria never made progress. @mbuhari was the Minister of Petroleum resources in 1977 when there was fuel scarcity and also the Minister of Petroleum resources superintending over fuel scarcity in 2023! We can’t continue like this” he wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Monday evening.
Meanwhile, Nigerians are groaning as the queuing at the filing stations for Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) persisted in several states, with many of the filling stations not open for business.
Many of the fuel stations are under lock and key while the few ones who are selling the product were filled up with queues of vehicles.
