The Ogun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over the new fuel price increment, stressing that the action of the current administration is a demonstration of its hatred for the Nigerian people.
A statement by the Publicity Secretary of the state Chapter of the party, Malik Ibitoye, described the Buhari’s-led government as anti-people and undemocratic.
“The Federal Government of Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has once again demonstrated its hatred for the Nigerian masses and the downtrodden people of Nigeria.
“Just a few weeks to the celebration of its first anniversary in office, the Buhari-led government officially increased pump price of Premium Motor Spirit from N86 to N145 to the chagrin of millions of Nigeria.
“It must be noted that the APC-led government has constantly displayed its arbitrariness with the brazen manner it has been churning out anti-people policies one of which is this latest onslaught on the people.”
The party called on all Nigerians irrespective of their political affiliations to reject the new price regime, stressing that it’s anti-democratic and retrogressive.
