"Until Crude Oil Is Extracted And Used In Nigeria, We Will Continue To Compound Our Problem"- Adamu.

The petroleum industry accounts for about nine percent of Nigeria's GDP, and for over 90 percent of all export value. Between January and March 2020, average daily oil production in Nigeria was 1.81 million barrels. The low demand for oil during the first half of 2020 lead to a sharp fall in prices.

Adamu Garba, however, has taken to his official Twitter page to advise Nigerians on how to deal with the problem regarding the issue of crude oil in Nigeria.

Sharing on his official Twitter page, he said:

"Keep exporting crude oil, keep exporting your energy, productivity, jobs, and keep exporting your destiny. Until the crude oil is extracted and used in Nigeria to power Nigerian industries, which in turn produce what is exportable, we will continue to compound our problems".

This particular statement made by Adamu Garba has sparked a lot of reactions on Twitter as users took to the comment box to share their thoughts.

According to a Twitter user identified as "Iwasanmi John" who said:

"But...who exactly are you referring to? Today you'll praise the government because you've joined APC. Tomorrow you'll lament the nation's problem. Who are you lamenting to exactly. Maybe the bus driver at Oshodi".

Another Twitter user identified as "Dozyy" also said:

"Take this word to your Fulani brother. Are you scared of calling them out? Who is the Minister Of Petroleum? Who is the GMD of NNPC? You are a coward".
