Report reaching elekenews.blogspot.com is that the president elect, Gen Muhammadu Buhari who is due for inauguration this Friday has invited Dr Ifeanyi Ubah of Capital Oil and Gas to thank him for averting what would have been a dark inauguration.
A source who is close to Ubah disclosed that the President Elect through his aide yesterday called Ubah, inviting him to his Abuja residence to thank him for forcing petroleum marketers through his action to shelve their strike action.
Ubah had on Sunday Night announced that he will not be a part of the evil cabal that has planned to plunge the country into crisis by refusing to distribute fuel, and that he was going to send 13,000,000 litres of fuel out for sale in all his outlets across the country at the approved price of N87 per litre.
This action may have forced the marketers to reconsider their stand and shelve their strike with the hope that between today and tomorrow, the product would be available at a reduced price.
Save for the action a source said, the Friday inauguration of the president elect would have been the worse in history as passengers both on air and on land have already been stranded as a result of the scarcity of the product.
Ubah sources said may end up being the first core Jonathan supporter to benefit from the Gen Buhari administration as ac result of his action.
