‘Fresh fuel price hike unnecessary, insensitive’
A DUTSE, Jigwa State-based public commentator, Comrade Mohammed Limawa, has described the ‘sharp increase’ in the pump price of fuel by the Federal Government as unnecessary and infliction of more hardship on Nigerians. He told The Guardian that the timing was also premature.
“It is senseless and against rightful thinking for the central government to announce a sudden increase in fuel pump price considering the catastrophic hardshipNigerians are passing through at this crucial moment,” Limawa noted.
He added: “We totally reject this increase due to its anticipated adverse effect on Nigerians.”
Also speaking, a member of Dutse branch of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mallam Sambo Bala, regretted the decision, saying the “All Progressives Congress (APC) government has proven its incapability to deliver good governance.”
He added: “ It is shamefulto see the APC government failing its cardinal objectives of good governance and social justice through harsh programmes.”
The unionist, therefore, called on the current administration to immediately reverse the move and similar ones in the interest of Nigerians that it promised so much during the 2015 electioneering.
