Primaries: Politicians Buy Up Fuel, Hotels Booked Out For Delegates by Kwanza: 8:53am On May 16
Amid fuel scarcity that has gripped the nation’s capital in the past week, it has emerged that top politicians of political parties procured fuel in most petrol stations in Abuja ahead of their primaries.

Many Abuja hotels have also been fully booked on Saturday, including smaller hotels on the outskirts. THISDAY checks showed that some presidential hopefuls paid for fuel in most petrol stations.

A source told THISDAY that one top politician paid for fuel in eight filling stations for the benefit of his delegates.

“You are seeing long queues everywhere because the politicians involved have purchased fuel in most of the petrol stations,” stated the source. “One popular politician paid for petroleum products in eight filling stations while others are also competing to buy up fuel in other stations to enable the movement of their delegates.”
The source also mentioned that political parties had secured accommodation in various hotels in Abuja for delegates.

“All the hotels in Abuja are fully booked. My boss sent me to secure a hotel which we were initially told was available, but when I got there, we were told another group beat us to it,” revealed the source. “Even in Gwagwalada and other hotels in the outskirts, it is the same thing. They are all booked.”

Another source said, “The same politicians buying up petroleum products as we were told even booked hotel accommodation two weeks ago.”

During political party primaries, most parts of Abuja are flooded with party delegates and their teeming supporters. Some delegates sleep inside party support vehicles and sometimes on the streets.

kakistocracy is a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.

Amidst fuel scarcity caused by their inefficient and ineffective governance, they greedily buy up the little available.

In the coming elections, vote with your mind even if you collect their bribes.

I won't tell you who to vote for, but know that the bigger the bribe, the more corrupt and uncaring the giver of the bribe will be when elected.

Fellow Nigerians, these men and women called politicians don't care about you and I.

Know this and know peace.

Lol. The hope has been shattered. Let me tell u all. None of our political leaders have our time walahi. Even that ur favorite candidate 4 ur mind na big time thief. The first thing they'll do once they enter office is to loot the money spent on election campaign and brouhaha. I repeat NO POLITICIAN HAS UR INTEREST AT HEART. Know this and know peace
