Thu, 28 Dec 2017

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to tell Nigerians the truth regarding the handling of fuel-related funds, particularly reports of 18 unregistered companies allegedly used to lift and divert $1.1 trillion worth of crude oil in the last one year.


 
The party also alleged that the Federal Government was providing cover for “huge sleazes directly involving APC interests” in the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

According to a statement issued by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Wednesday, the PDP said “it is completely reprehensible that the APC and the Federal Government has continued to stick to lies, particularly on the real reasons behind the biting fuel scarcity as well as their exposed attempt to pilfer $1 billion from the Excess Crude Account (ECA).”

It also admonished government officials to stop “dishing out” falsehood to suffering Nigerians.

The PDP charged the government to tell Nigerians the truth regarding its handling of fuel related funds, instead of dissipating its energy on name callings.

“This APC government is not only grossly incompetent and corrupt but also a champion in the use of lies and manipulations against innocent and unsuspecting citizens.

“We all know that it was convenient for the APC Presidency to promise Nigerians that it will no longer import fuel, only because the PDP government had already laid the foundation, including revamping the refineries and ensuring a domestic production of five million litres out of the 25 million litres daily domestic consumption.

“Sadly, this incompetent APC government, in its almost three years, has not added one litre to the five million litres which the PDP administration was producing.
 
“Instead of improvements, the APC has wrecked the system and now pushing the nation to depend solely on importation, while engaging in heavy sleazes in hidden subsidy regimes,” the statement read.

THE return of queues in most of our filling stations caused panic among Nigerians. Until now, Nigerians enjoyed uninterrupted supply of fuel with a fixed price across the country. The sudden return of queues elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians, with many expressing the fear that the government wanted to increase the price of fuel. This speculation has been put to rest by the Secretary to  the Government Of The Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, who assured Nigerians of the government’s commitment to solving the problem.


 
The Oil marketers Association has complained that it cannot continue to import fuel and sell it at the rate of N145 per litre. The government, on the other hand, has blamed the marketers for deliberately hoarding and increasing the price of fuel.

There are hues and cries not only from Nigerians but also from the opposition parties which accused the government of not doing enough to bring an end to the lingering fuel scarcity. While the blame game lingers, Nigerians are made to suffer from the new price regime imposed on them by the marketers.
