The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on Buhari’s Government to immediately review its decision on the sudden hike in the price of petrol to N162 per litre.
The party gave the advice in a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Monday.
Ologbondiyan said the demand by the citizens was an immediate downward review in the pump price of fuel, adding that the attempt to justify the increase to N160 was unacceptable to Nigerians.
“The PDP totally rejects this, the increase in fuel price all in the name of removal of oil subsidy,” he said.
He described this as illogical predicating the increase in the price of the commodity on a faulty comparison with costs in other countries.
He said the comparison was not correct as the daily standard of living, the purchasing power and living wage of the average Nigerian in the last five years could not be compared with what was obtainable in those countries.
