VICTORY TREK, REVELATION OF PRESENT FUEL TROUBLES IN NIGERIA

Certainly, a trek up Kilimanjaro is no easy journey.

Much and extra energy with endurance is required to embark on such sucking adventure. To the East African Tanzanians, this task might seem a caky experience.

However, Nigeria is perhaps one place where this could as well be seen as piece of meal.

They incident of pregnant women and old folks on a jubilant “legs-wagon” exodus from different parts of Nigeria to Abuja in euphoria of President M. Buhari victory over former President Jonathan is ample to make a case.

It was indeed, not a funny event. After all, it soon became a rewarding enterprise. Most common of its reward was the presidential handshake.

It must be said also that the Buhari’s victory trek was greatly met with diverse criticism from different quarters. For roughly three weeks or so, the social media and broadcasting houses hardly went a day without a mention of the Buhari’s victory trek.

While some popular Nigerians had condemned the act, a number of others had seen nothing wrong with it. Trending at the time was Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade’s “hiss out” on the issue. The actress had labelled the people, especially youths involved in the exercise as jobless.

However, with a month or less than a year of Buhari’s assumption of office, Nigeria has been in economic crisis.

One of such economic troubles is the scarcity of fuel. In a recent opinion poll conducted by Naijapr, a number of Nigerians are disappointed about the fuel troubles rocking the economic system.

T he poll which was done in two South-western Nigerian states (Lagos and Osun) saw three categories of people. one was the category of people who though were vexed at scarcity of the crude product but still have faith in the Buhari’s administration.

The second category was one in which some good Nigerians have lost faith in the present administration. For this category, ”Jonathan’s tenure was better than this.”

The third category of Nigerians, students, would rather sit on the fence. They were not totally neutral but rather satirical.

In Osun State, Nigeria, particularly at the Obafemi Awolowo University, many students have chosen to react to the current situation by the way of satire. One particular  case was that of Charles Raymond who traced the present fuel troubles to May 2015 Buhari victory trek incident.

According to him, the then trek was a ”revelation of the present fuel troubles in Nigeria.”

”Well, I see no reasons where why Nigerians are angry and complaining now. As for me, I have  long seen this coming ,” he said. Asked how he meant, Mr Raymond claimed that the then perceived jobless people who had trekked for Buhari were the real prophets.”

In his words, those people had traveled thousands of kilometers by foot because they new what was soon to come.

‘Indirectly, the trekking exercise was a message to Nigerians that all of us will one day trek from our homes to places of work. Not because we won’t be able to afford cars but because of what is happening now. Is everyone not trekking now? now people sleep at the filling stations to queue for insufficient fuel. Rich men alike park their cars these days in very long queue, later leave their cars  by the road side only to trek home,” he averred

Lets hope and remain optimistic as some Nigerians, putting all hands on deck to support the Buhari’s led administration to better the present situation.
