    To all you people who voted for Joe Biden ….. At this hour Crude Oil is up at $1.03 on the spot market to a whopping $60.50 per barrell..! This represents an 8% increase in less than 24 days. On Inauguration Day oil was $53.28/barrell. Thank you Joe and all who voted for him

    @ksorbs False
    U.S. fossil fuel exports began to decline in 2020, before Joe Biden took office. These changes were brought about by a historic decline in the demand for — and cost of — crude oil. The COVID-19 pandemic, not the actions of any U.S. president, was the cause of those trends.

  • From Mayorspeaks:

    Abdulrasheed Bawa is AGF Malami’s cousin, he was arrested by Magu EFCC for Oil Theft and yet Buhari is about to make him EFCC next Chairman.Me: EFCC is to be head by Northerners alone, Nigeria is only united by crude oil, sea port and air port in the southern region.
