The All Progressives Congress has defended the fuel price
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has defended the fuel price hike which has been approved by the federal government.
In its statement which served as a response to PDP’s rejection of fuel price hike and increment of electricity tariff, the APC alleged that successive PDP governments foisted Nigeria a corruption-tainted fuel subsidy regime.
According to the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary Mr Yekini Nabena, Nigerians no longer have to endure tortuous queues to buy fuel.
The statement read;
“The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to a shameless statement by the Peoples Democratic Party PDP on the current petrol price and electricity tariff in the country.
“For successive PDP governments that foisted on the country a corruption-tainted fuel subsidy regime, we call on the PDP to surprise itself and indeed Nigerians by cajoling its cronies who ran the subsidy rackets — many of them in hiding abroad — to return our stolen commonwealth in their possession.
“Under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, the tortuous fuel queues as a result of biting scarcities are gone. The reviewed petroleum products pricing template has resulted in a more transparent, efficient and realistic pricing system for petroleum products and also resulted in constant availability of fuel nationwide.
“The pricing template now reflects competitive and market-driven components which is supported by the citizenry”.
