Fayose: N145 per litre shows Buhari hates us

Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state governor, has described the new pump price of petrol as “a demonstration of the level of hatred the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has for Nigerians”.

In a statement issued on his behalf by Lere Olayinka, his spokesman, Fayose said the scarcity of petrol experienced in the last three months was deliberately orchestrated by the government to pave way for the increment.

He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) rode to power through deceit, accusing the ruling party of promising to reduce petrol price to N45.

The governor said he was expecting the reactions of those who vehemently opposed the attempt of former President Goodluck Jonathan to remove subsidy.

“When they were seeking for votes from Nigerians, they promised to reduce petrol pump price to from N87 to N45 per litre, they promised to create three million jobs per year, they said $1 will be equal to N1 and above all, they promised to pay unemployed youths N5, 000 stipend and provide one meal a day to pupils nationwide,” the statement read.

“The over 70 per cent increment is another vindication of my predictions on what to expect in 2016. It is now clear that the scarcity of petrol being experienced in the last three months was deliberately orchestrated by the federal government to pave way for the already conceived increment.

“Nigerians are now left at the mercy of political liars who took over power by deception and are governing by deceit.

“Instead of fulfilling their promises, they have increased petrol pump price to N145 per litre, increased electricity tariffs, retrenched thousands of workers and imposed untold hardships on Nigerians.

“As they did in 2012, if labour leaders do not also stand up for the people at this time, posterity will not forgive them.”
