Controversial former aide to ex President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has slammed some Nigerians complaining about the hike in fuel price due to the removal of fuel subsidy.
Reno said same people who complained about the foreign debt under former president, Muhammadu Buhari administration and also fuming about the current fuel price under President Bola Tinubu administration do not understand the meaning between action and consequence.
The political analyst insisted that it is impossible to have it both ways, adding that the reason for the loans from foreign government was to sustain the fuel subsidy.
He wrote; “When you complain that our foreign debt exploded under Buhari and you are now fuming that fuel price has gone up under Tinubu, you show you are immature and do not understand the causal relationship between action and consequences.

“You can’t have it both ways. Much of our borrowing was to fund fuel subsidy. If you don’t want an unsustainable debt that neither our children nor we can pay, you MUST accept the new fuel prices.
“Nigeria MUST remove partisan politics from fuel, electric power generation, and Ajaokuta Steel Company. Because without tackling those three things, we can never grow to meet our potential.
“I know that Buhari, Tinubu, Tunde Bakare, and co did it to us. But I am not on a revenge mission. I am on a rescue mission. It is better to have appropriate fuel price than to have an inappropriate debt burden.
