Former Governorship aspirant in Ogun State on the platform of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Otunba Segun Showunmi has called on the current admission of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to go after profiteers and other economic saboteurs who abused the fuel subsidy regime.

Showunmi in statement he sent to and other reputable media outlets on Thursday, June 1, 2023 said a ”reasonable government in a situation like this must demand accountability for the mess created and send those culpable to jail.”

Kindly read the release in extenso as reproduced hereunder:

Oil Sector deregulation- we are here now!

We have inadvertently created a country where those who abused the subsidy regime are allowed to get away with their crimes against humanity with the economic sabotage they caused and yet the poor will carry the burden in such an unfeeling, lacking in empathy anti-people policy, while the shylocks parading as oil cabals live on the agony of the masses.

A reasonable government must demand accountability for the mess created and send those culpable to jail. It is not enough to pass the burden of their greed and criminality to the people.


Capitalism cannot be a crime without consequence. The poor cannot always clean up the mess created by voracious and greedy players in the oil sector.

Otunba Segun Showunmi.
