Whenever I have to read what Hon.Patrick Obahiagbon says on any bothering issue, I know that I will be greatly entertained. He is one man who Nigerians love to listen to or read about when it comes to controversial issues because of his grammar. As expected, Hon. Patrick has taken time to talk on one of the issue at the moment- Fuel subsidy removal.
“I have read with acatalectic disgust, governments asinine and puerile ratiocinations attempting to justiceate the proposed removal of subsidies from petroleum products. It has asseverated that it’s intentions is guided by the need to checkmate the odoriferous excesses of a machiavellian and mephistophelean cabal and i have said to myself, what a shame? What a self indicting admittal of the failure of governance? What anhocus-pocus? What an anathematous disdain for it’s citizenry?
Must the people now bear the brunt for governments ineptitude, inefficiency and pusillanimity in squaring up with these economic philistines and fat cows? I feel even more nauseated and vexed that the Governors Forum has posthaste conferred an apocalyptic imprimatur on this genie. Let’s not forget that majority of these same Governors had earlier called for this state of affairs as a condition sinequanon for paying the minimum wage. What an opprobrium? What a deprecable descent from the sublime to the ridiculous? It’s up to us all to put this Presidential and Gubernatorial genie back into the bottle but are we prepared?
