Oil Theft: Sowore Lambasts Tinubu, Buhari, Osinbajo, Service Chiefs
The 2023 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has described President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a confused man.
Sowore made this known in a tweet on Friday, June 2, 2023, while reacting to the President’s directive to service chiefs and heads of security and intelligence agencies on Thursday to deal with perpetrators of oil theft.
Our correspondent reports that the President had on Thursday, during his maiden official meeting with service chiefs and intelligence heads, led by the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, directed service chiefs and heads of security and intelligence agencies to “crush” perpetrators of oil theft, saying his administration would not tolerate the menace.
Tinubu also said that on his watch, insecurity would not bring Nigeria to its knees while other countries record achievements in key sectors of their economies.
Reacting, Sowore, who seems to believe the directive would be futile, described the president as a “very confused” individual.
The AAC chieftain alleged that the service chiefs and heads of security and intelligence agencies are also “professionally and massively” engaged in the oil theft menace.
He wrote, “This @officialABAT is confused! Very confused! He is asking those “professionally” and massively carrying out oil theft to crush those involved in “oil theft!”
Speaking further, the activist spared no words in condemning the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari and his vice president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
According to him, the duo’s (Buhari and Osinbajo’s) administration was a total failure.
He wrote: “Failure par excellence! The end of an error! @ProfOsinbajo returned back from Abuja having done absolutely nothing to make Nigeria better than he met it! @ProfOsinbajo and @MBuhari destroyed Nigeria as a tag team. As my secondary school principal used to say: “Bose Lo, Lose Bo!” (BL,LB) -(He went empty handed and returned empty handed).”
