President Muhammad Buhari has apologised to Nigerians over the prolonged fuel scarcity crisis the country is experiencing.
He said it while presenting the Nigerian 2016 budget of N6.08 trillion today at the National Assembly.
“Government profoundly apologises for the current scarcity” he said, while assuring Nigerians that the current scarcity will be the thing of the past as he had mandated the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to explore ways to end the scarcity as quick as possible.
He blamed the cause of the scarcity on stakeholders in the petroleum industry who according to him have refused to embrace change.
The present administration had yesterday stated that Jonathan’s government had stopped payment for fuel subsidy as far back as August 2014 stating that Nigerians are now paying for Jonathan’s past sins.
