In agreement to the primacy of gratitude among human virtues, please allow me to begin today with words of gratitude. I am most grateful to Chatham House, Dr. Alex Vines & his team for the global impact of their mission and commitment to engagement with Nation building in pic.twitter.com/JYy4RP94YA— Peter Obi (@PeterObi) January 16, 2023
Lastly, foreign policy is not in the dictionary of Peter Obi, he was saying he needed Nigeria to benefit from the war in Ukraine. This is criminal and a poor understanding of foreign diplomacy.— ILESANMI .B. SAMUEL (@silesanmi64_b) January 16, 2023
Ilesanmi’s tweet had so many thought provoking responses that exposed depth on the lack of it in the phraseology faculty of many adroit critics .
Yes,Nigeria didn't cause the war and were helping in any way possible but for the main time,the war caused an increase in demand of crude oil (which Nigeria is so much blessed and dependent on),what would have the Nigerian government done if not benefit from it ?— Ezekiel Ekene (@kenekenzy) January 16, 2023
Here’s another response, and a few other responses
Like am just laughing my ass out here. What can Nigeria do to stop Ukraine war? Is Nigeria the cause of the war? even at that, why can't we meet up with our daily quota of OPEC? even the people that pushed Ukraine to war are taking advantage.— Adeotan (@adeolujus) January 16, 2023
Do u know J.D Rockefella?
I don’t know how you see what he said as a bad thing. Even in war, countries benefit from the chaos, do you know how much the pump price went are the peak of the Ukraine war, if we were a refining nation,we would have been swimming in billions of dollars. Stop this hypocrisy abeg— ♣Second Adam 😁 ♣©™ (@isojeuba) January 16, 2023
the guy just showed how other oil countries had a drop in inflation except Nigeria& Venezuela .Even clearly stated that no one prays for war— devGuy (@devGuy5) January 16, 2023
Meaning Nigeria shld not be made a victim of every circumstance. Covid , ukarian war na we go suffer pass.Ur post is a dishonest appraisal
Again it comes down to simply making our refineries work so that in situations like the Russia/Ukraine we could benefit from increased sale. https://t.co/ONL3tWRQ4D— Allen_Will.iam (@Allen_Will_iam) January 17, 2023
Not only are some of the responses to the tweet by Samuel Ilesanmi commonsensical, they are downright hilarious and heart lightening.

They will find alternative
2. His understanding of the economy is shallow. He was asked How he would restructure the foreign debt and instead of providing how he will pay the loans . He was accusing our foreign partners of aiding and abetting corruption.— ILESANMI .B. SAMUEL (@silesanmi64_b) January 16, 2023
Nigeria needs more of the commonsensical tweets to put the data, phone and less thinking opinion givers by compulsion, in check.
