Despite fuel scarcity, we will continue to air Buhari documentary – Presidency

The presidency has reacted to its decision to air a documentary on President Muhammadu Buhari at a time most Nigerians are lamenting the fuel situation in the country.

The fuel scarcity across the country has grounded businesses and offices and lead to over 100 per cent increase in price from the official N145 per litre.

The presidency had earlier told Premium Times the documentary to show a different side of the president, will start airing on Sunday.

In a statement on Sunday, Femi Adesina, Mr. Buhari’s spokesperson, said the presidency was aware of the complaints by Nigerians of the timing of the documentary, but that it will proceed.

“The reactions mainly dwell on the fact that a documentary showing the human side of the President (as against the well-known iron and steel) is coming at a time there is severe fuel scarcity in the country. And I say, why not? Is life all about doom and gloom? Must we sit in ashes and wear sackcloth perpetually, and ignore the brighter side of life? God forbid!”, he said.
