Fuel Shortage, Plot By FG To Increase Price —Fayose

Governor Ayodele Fayose

EKITI State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said the present shortage of fuel in the nation was a ploy by the Federal Government to legitimize the arranged addition of petrol pump price from N145 to N185 per liter.

The governor, who blamed the Federal Government for being heartless to the predicament of Nigerians, stated: “Petrol is scarce across the country because the Federal Government deliberately reduced supply since it is only the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC, that is importing the product.”

Fayose, in an release on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, added: “Allowing fuel scarcity to persist for over two weeks when Nigerians are preparing to celebrate Christmas and New Year is the height of wickedness on the part of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government.

“Funny enough, instead of directing its anger to President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the Minister of Petroleum, on December 7, 2017, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) choose to give the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu seven days ultimatum to end the fuel scarcity.”
