To postpone deregulation, even for one day, is dangerous for the products supply and distribution in the country. If we fail to deregulate now, the whole downstream sector of the Nigerian oil industry would collapse and the consequences would be too grave for our fragile national economy and for all of us. Indeed, deregulation is an economic inevitability.
Today, the three tiers of government are well funded as a result of improved earnings from crude oil. It is our collective responsibility to challenge and demand commensurate performance in the provision of basic amenities: improved education and health; aggressive agrarian projects and excellent and functional transportation modes nationwide.
