APC really want to increase fuel price in Nigeria>>PDP declared



PDP, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC government want to increase the pump price of petrol in order to fund the 2019 general election.
The main opposition party appealed to the APC-led government not to increase the fuel price which is already N145 per litre.
According to the PDP, the lingering fuel crisis and its attendant black-market costs were only a ploy by the APC to justify their intended hike of petroleum prices.
This was part of the PDP’s statement on Friday, issued by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement said, “Any increase in fuel pump price would be an indirect tax on Nigerians to fund APC interests and considering the pains Nigerians have suffered under this inept and unfeeling government, this intended hike will be callous.
“It is now clear to all that this APC- controlled government will never act in the interest of Nigerians. All the actions and policies of APC, in their close to three years in office, have been targeted against Nigerians and there are no signals that they will change.”
"We therefore urge Nigerians to reject this plot to raise the prices of petroleum products even as they gear towards using the next election to end the misrule of the APC,” the party said.
The party added that instead of putting more burden on the people, the APC-led government should come out clear on “sleazes in the oil sector under its watch, particularly the shady oil subsidy payouts and illegal lifting of N1.1 trillion worth of crude using unregistered companies.”
