considering the fact that we are a giant supplier of natural gas our local suppliers actually sell oxygen-filled gas to us rather than the real deal. one is buying half the content in a normal cylinder of gas. other places of the world, gas cylinder day last the buyer for a long time. In Nigeria before you on am make eba e don finish.
Nigeria has abundant natural gas reserve at 192 Trillion Cubic Feet, TCF, and currently, ranks ninth in the world, yet the locals resort to firewood becasue they cannot afford to use gas. only in Nigeria is cooking with gas considered an affluent lifestyle. people go even day brag say dem day use gas. gas way poor men day use anyhow for other places.
Is our government bragging that Nigerians pay less for gas when the average citizen cannot afford it? why are government representatives so wicked like this? You cannot even use electric stove place boil water because light bill is still onthe high. how can the poor survive in this country?
Even the rich people cannot use gas to cook party food. they claim firewood food na sweet pass but when dem go Dubai go do wedding dem forget say firewood food no day there. person go day brag in penury

Buhari enter power instead of am to become minister of light he run go petroleum. he boasted that our refineries would function 100% and criticised the previous regime. Now, none of the refineries function and he has not said anything to condemn himself. is that not hypocrisy?
They should castrate that idiot way say Nigerians pay less for cooking gas. even if na true sef, only one month reach to announce the decades of cheats and extortion on Nigerians?

Is that why Buhari has raised the price of fuel and made it scarce
Buhari is a monumental error of gargantuan proportions that must be corrected in 2019.
And the people of the Lord said a loud Amen

It is ironic that the south-south where the gas is abundant and mostly generated and even flared will have the highest purchasing price.

OGA let's not just say things that flow to our mind, think before you speak and not after.

gas as a commodity has no stable price(as Nigeria is concerned). 12kg of gas once sold for 8/9 thousands in last 2 years. so I wonder where you got your 4years fact from.

happy ash Wednesday Val.

Okay. So?

I don't have a problem circulating information from a body. I have a problem with not breaking the knowledge down to what are prons, cons, effects on the average populace.

Writing a whole hullabaloo without reaching to the common man will not have any impact. My submission though.

Just because your IB was saved by his 2015 loss, I wonder what he could have done with 28 dollars per barrel when he was already borrowing to pay salaries at 58 dollars per barrel.
