Ifeanyi Ubah, Managing Director of Capital Oil and Gas Limited and one time LP gubernatorial candidate for Anambra State has called on President Buhari to probe oil marketers over the non supply of petrol for four days.
While acknowledging that although government was indebted to the marketers, he maintained that the agitation for the payment of their monies was not properly handled.
“Indeed the marketers are being owed large sums of money and I am one of those being owed a large sum of money but I believe that dialogue should have been the choice of the marketers especially considering the state of the nation.
“It was unprecedented in the country for oil marketers to go on strike for up to four days and what I expected was to have a warning strike before a total shut down,” he said.
Uba who admitted that the decision to shutdown the country was not a unilateral one, stated that the few marketers who were behind the shutdown should be probed.
“It was unpatriotic for them to shutdown the country, if this is not properly investigated there could be a repeat of such, marketers should know that they are not labour unions, there was an agreement with government to pay them gradually, but they disregarded the agreement and unpatriotically threw the country into crisis,” Uba said.
