Nollywood actress Georgina Onuoha took to her Instagram page yesterday to decry the recent removal of fuel subsidy and deregulation of the downstream oil sector leading to an increase in the price of PMS to 145 Naira.
She posted a picture of Buhari and said:
Nigeria deregulates downstream oil sector, petrol to sell for about N145 a litre from 87 naira #change you voted for #Change you believed in#Civil servants not paid in months#Inflation rising #No wage increase #No electricity #No fuel/gas in an oil producing country #And the youths are silent #My Frozen generation #My tribalist country #Innocent citizens dying in North-East #When do we begin to tell ourselves the honest truth? #These men overthrew governments in their 20’s and early 30’s # Today 30 something year old Nigerians of today are either uneducated, lives with parent, educated with no job or can’t even start a family of their own! # Four year college; you spend 6-7 years # All their kids are schooling in London # Why won’t they become terrorist? # Why won’t they kidnapped? # why won’t they bomb pipelines # Why won’t they do internet scam? # When they can’t put food on their tables #While their elected representatives that are meant to serve them live in multiple million dollars mansions, drive expensive cars and allocate the nations wealth to themselves! #When is enough enough? #What is the way forward #A 70 something year old man, uneducated running a country filled with bright stars in a 21st century economy ? # How do you fight corruption or corrupt system that you helped create in 1983? When you overthrew a democratically elected government? # Why are we so dumb to believe same old fraudsters and con artist ? # Are we as a people so gullible? # wolves in sheep clothing # Dictators in civilian clothes #Words fail me. #I cry for my country # I’m praying for my country # I will fight for my country’s glory #speakoutNigerians # SpeakupNigerians
There were mixed reactions to her rant in Georgina’s comment section. Some people said she didn’t fully understand what the deregulation entailed and other people applauded her outburst.
