PHOTOS, VIDEO: Osinbajo turns fuel attendant at filling station, tells Nigerians “I feel your pains”
Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday turned to a petrol station attendant in other to witness firsthand the hardship Nigerians are currently experiencing.
He visited two filling stations in Lagos, Oando in Lekki and Hayden Petrol Station in Victoria Island.
The VP who made a surprise appearance, sympathized with Nigerians over the lingering fuel crisis even as Christians around the world celebrate Christmas.
He, however, assured Nigerians that the government is “working assiduously to eliminate this pain in the shortest possible time”.
“Christmas is a time of cheer, joy, and hope for the coming New Year. Many people would love to be around their families, but regrettably, cannot because of the inadequacies in the fuel supply in different parts of the nation.
“This is something that President Buhari is deeply concerned about, mandating all relevant persons to bring an end to the fuel queues. I witnessed first-hand the discomfort that many of us have to contend with.
“We sympathise with you and are working assiduously to eliminate this pain in the shortest possible time. We regret this inconvenience while assuring that all hands are on deck to return things to normalcy,” he said via his twitter handle.
