CUPP flays government on plans to re-introduce toll gates
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has kicked against plans by the Federal Government to re-introduce toll gates on federal roads.
A statement, yesterday, signed by the Spokesperson of the group, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, said the measure was planned to impoverish Nigerians more.
The statement read: “The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has received with shock the decision of the present Federal Government to re-introduce toll gates on the nation’s roads. The decision is coming at a time government is also planning to increase Value Added Tax (VAT). All these are coming at a time the government is reneging on its promise ahead of the 2019 general elections to increase national minimum wage to N30,000.
“Opposition parties view these insensitive economic policies as deliberate decisions aimed at further impoverishing Nigerians, who are already wallowing in abject poverty.
“This government, clearly does not have the interest and welfare of the citizens at heart and does not deserve Nigerians’ support.”
