The elstwhile governorship candidate of People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Ogun state, Otunba Segun Showunmi has tasked President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to go after subsidy thieves who melted hardship on the poor masses during the previous administration.
According to his Facebook page post on 1st of June 2023. titled, Oil Sector deregulation — we are here now! Sowunmi stated that those who abused subsidy regime are allowed to get away with their crime against humanity.
“We have inadvertently created a country where those who abused the subsidy regime are allowed to get away with their crimes against humanity with the economic sabotage they caused and yet the poor will carry the burden in such an unfeeling, lacking in empathy anti-people policy, while the shylocks parading as oil cabals live on the agony of the masses.”
A reasonable government must demand accountability for the mess created and send those culpable to jail. It is not enough to pass the burden of their greed and criminality to the people.
Capitalism cannot be a crime without consequence. The poor cannot always clean up the mess created by voracious and greedy players in the oil sector.
