Riliwan Lukman is Nigeria’s Minister for Petroleum Resources. Nigeria has a persistent problem with Petroleum products despite the fact that we are one the largest producers of crude oil in the world.
I don’t remember the last yuletide or Christmas in Nigeria without Fuel Crises.
Riliwan Lukman has been in and out of government for decades and it was a big shock that Yar Adua appointed him as Petroleum Resources Minister in his illegal government. That the useless Senate even ratified his appointment points to the stupidity in governance in Nigeria. Empty skulls all!
Nigerians are suffering under a persistent fuel crisis even this Christmas/ New year. But you know what? Riliwan Lukman is on vacation in Austria.
Goodluck Jonathan wanted to have him in a meeting. According to the Nigerian Guardian Newspaper, Jonathan had at the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday directed Lukman along with two ministers of State, Mr. Odein Ajumogobia (Petroleum) and Mr. Remi Babalola (Finance), to suspend their Christmas and New Year vacations to enable them all stay within Abuja and find a solution to the fuel crisis in the country.
Mr. Lukman jetted out. The thing is the man is expired and he is not the solution to the problem even if he attend 1 thousand meetings. It is just surprising that he confirmed my fears that many Nigerian Ministers and politicians are actually crazy.
Nigeria presently has no legal head or president. Mr Yar Adua, the illegally installed ruler, is lying unconscious in Saudi Arabia for the past 1 month. Those who are the custodians of the constitution are committing treasonable felony as they have subverted the contents therein to their selfish gains. Nigeria is in coma and remain headless as 2009 winds up.
So Mr Lukman has no one to account to, Jonathan can go to hell. Who cares? I mean this is a man that has been in successive failed governments, and he is one of those who have mismanaged our wealth. He came into this fake government with no new ideas, so I am not surprise that while fuel is dried up in Nigeria, he preferred a holiday in Europe. Another white Christmas for another useless Nigerian Minister.
I can’t wait for the Nigerian revolution.
