A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has described Prof. Wole Soyinka, Prof. Pat Utomi, Pastor Tunde Bakare, Femi Falana and others as hypocrites for keeping mute as scarcity of fuel continues to bite harder across the country.

According to them, during the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan, they were vocal and took to the streets at the slightest provocation but had remained motionless even when fuel price has risen to N145 from N85, yet Nigerians can’t see it to buy.


Onuesoke said since they had shown themselves as activists in 2012 during the tenure of Jonathan, they should equally speak out against the present hardship the masses were facing with respect to scarcity of fuel.

He made the appeal after purchasing fuel for N420 per liter in Abuja yesterday, adding that what was happening presently in Nigeria with respect to fuel scarcity showed that the APC-led government did not have anything to offer.

He said: “What are the Soyinkas, Femi Falanas, Joe Odumakins, Pastor Bakares, Utomis and others who claim to be activists and defenders of the masses doing now when the prices of the commodities went to the roof top and it is not available in this present administration.

“When former President Goodluck Jonathan wanted to deregulate the oil sector and raise fuel pump price they protested. They shut down the country for six days.


“They shut down the country for six days. Then they claimed they were fighting for the interest of their generations.

“But when this present government which promised to reduce fuel pump price during campaign removed fuel subsidy and increased fuel pump price from N65 to N145 per litre, none of them raised an eye brow. They pretended as if they were not aware of the astronomical increase of fuel pump price by President Muhammadu Buhari’s government. That is the hypocrisy of the western people.”
