Tell The Truth About The Gasoline Crisis

RECENTLY, THE GOVERNMENT of Liberia release signed by the Information Minister informed the public that it has purchased emergency supplies of gasoline products which will be in the country within one week to alleviate the gasoline shortage nightmare.
BUT IT WAS barely 24 hours when the same government’s spokesperson, Information Minister Eugene Nagbe, told the public on yesterday when he appeared on the Super Morning Show that Liberians should remain calm as government is doing everything possible to ensure that more gasoline comes into the country within 24-48 hours, which is a matter of days.
ON FEBRUARY 10, the management of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company said due to the APM Terminal rescheduling of vessels at the National Port Authority, there will be inconveniences in getting petroleum products mainly gasoline products on the Liberian market.
CAPPING THIS UNDERPERFORMANCE, the LPRC assured the public that it anticipates that the unforeseen shortage of the gasoline will be resolved within 10 to 14 days, and quoted in its release informing the public that the current inventory of gasoline suggests that these challenges may continue through February 24.
HOWEVER, IN A press release issued on February 12 in which it stated that it was putting the records straight, the APM Terminals Liberia Limited said the company has not rescheduled any vessels and has no knowledge of vessels being rescheduled.
THE COMPANY STATED that it totally and completely rejects the unsubstantial claims made by the LPRC management and said its involvement with petroleum vessels movement in and out of the Free Port of Monrovia is that it is only responsible to provide marine services to petroleum vessels to the LPRC pier or the BMC at the Free Port of Monrovia.
WE URGE THE government to tell the public, the masses as well as its foreign residents the hard truth so that when we are all aware, it puts us all in the position to understand and make our own analysis instead of having more than one spokesperson at all times which brings more confusion into simple matters.
THIS IS A situation that has claimed the attention of every Liberian as well as foreigners within our borders therefore the government must desist from the many controversies, misinformation, blame-gaming and silence from our national leader surrounding this entire gasoline saga which we all know by now that the government is struggling to find a proactive solution.
WE SERIOUSLY AGREE with the political leader of the Alternative National Congress that this issue may have a trickle-down effect if it is not handled now or it may be perceived to be a trick for political gains by someone wanting to score some political marks.
THE ISSUE OF petroleum is an economic problem because it covers more than a basic need and cuts across many essential needs including electricity, transport-import and export; which leads to livelihoods of everyone and it is only unfair that citizens would be suffering the hike in exchange rate and then the issue of gasoline will prop up to import additional suffering.
WE WANT TO remind our leaders especially President George Weah not to keep quiet on this issue as many Liberians witnessed how rice was an issue that cumulated into a riot that brought about the destruction of lives and properties and to date it is recorded in our history as the most memorable event.
LEST WE ALL forget, that Liberians are loving and peaceful people and are capable of doing anything when pushed against the wall because there are still blindfolded politicians who can use any given situation to score political mark when the opportunity avails itself.
