Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari over the removal of subsidy on petroleum which was announced yesterday and has seen the price of petrol rise from N86 to N145 per litre.
The screen diva went hard at President Buhari, alleging that he is a corrupt leader, who helped to facilitate corruption in Nigeria during his term as a military leader.
She said that Buhari is claiming to stop corruption when he solely overtook a peaceful civilian government in the early 1980s.
She said, “Nigeria deregulates downstream oil sector, petrol to sell for about N145 a litre from 87 naira. #change you voted for #change you believed in #Civil servants not paid in months #Inflation rising #No wage increase #No electricity #No fuel/gas in an oil producing country # And the youths are silent #My Frozen generation #My tribalist country #Innocent citizens dying in North-East #When do we begin to tell ourselves the honest truth?”
She also took time out to challenge Nigerians not to be naive, urging them to respond to what she terms as a rip-off of the citizens by the privileged class.
Onuoha also shared her belief in the power of prayer, stating that she would play her part by first praying for the nation.
“Are we as a people so gullible? # wolves in sheep clothing # Dictators in civilian clothes #Words fail me. #I cry for my country # I’m praying for my country # I will fight for my country’s glory #speakoutNigerians#”, she said.
Her outburst has however met encouragement from her fans, who also noted that the Nigerian president has not been able to deliver on his promises for change.
