“You’re Very Insensitive For Increasing Petrol Price During Coronavirus” – Group Blasts Buhari

“You’re Very Insensitive For Increasing Petrol Price During Coronavirus” – Group Blasts Buhari (Updated: Thursday, 3rd September 2020, 07:40 PM)


Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been lambasted over his decision to hike petrol price.

The Afri-Goal Foundation, a Non-governmental organization has declared the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration as an insensitive government bent on making Nigerians suffer.

It called out the President for increasing petrol price at a time the citizens are facing serious hardship in the country due to coronavirus pandemic.

The organization says that the recent fuel hike in the country has shown that the Buhari-led administration and the ruling All Progressives Congress do not care about the plights of Nigerians.

The NGO, Afri-Goal Foundation said this on Thursday.

The Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, had earlier announced an increment in the pump price of petrol to N151.56 per litre.

Afrigoal, however, demanded that government reverses the pump price to its original N130 and also reverse other anti-human taxes and tariffs increase.

According to the NGO, the latest increments should not have been thought of as it is coming at a time when the people are yet to get over the hardship and bite of COVID-19.

“While battling the impact of COVID-19, the government not only increase electricity tariff but also raised taxes and levies on the informal sector.

“This fuel hike appears to be a slap on the faces of Nigerians who are merely striving to provide for themselves what the government has failed to do,” the NGO said.

It, however, urged the government to empathize with Nigerians on what they are going through and put a halt to all policies and hikes that will further compound the woes of Nigerians.
