PDP warns against further hike in fuel price


The Peoples Democratic Party PDP, has warned the Federal Government against further increase in fuel price in the country.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, lamented that Nigerians were already faced with economic hardship following the November 2020 increase in the price of fuel to N170 per litre, adding that further hike in fuel price would worsen the situation.

He said Nigerians might not survive a further fuel price increase with its attendant increase in cost of goods and services. He said there was no justification in comparing Nigeria’s fuel price with those of other countries whose citizens have better purchasing power.
