Presidency replies Jonathan on Nigerians’ silence over fuel hike under Buhari

Unread postby Wsj » Fri Oct 20, 2017 5:13 pm

The Presidency has reacted to former President Goodluck Jonathan’s comment on the silence of Nigerians regarding the increment in petroleum product under President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said the difference between Jonathan and Buhari is the trust.

Jonathan while speaking on Thursday in Abuja, had said, “My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 at a time that global crude price was going for over 100 dollars.

“The pump price was later reduced to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower. Those who criticised my administration are not talking again now that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143.”

However, in a tweet, on Friday, Adesina wrote: “When petrol went to N145 under PMB, Nigerians held their peace, unlike when they shut the country in 2012. The difference is trust. Simple.”
