A chieftain of the People Democratic Party, PDP, and former Kogi Central Senator, Dino Melaye has berated the government of President Muhammadu Buhari over the hike in the pump price of petrol.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC on Wednesday increased the pump price from N138 to N151.56 per litre.
But in a series of post on his Twitter page on Thursday, Melaye described the increase in petrol price during a pandemic as ”grossly insensitive and wicked by the government”
The controversial lawmaker noted that the action of the government shows how the All Progressives Congress, APC is taking advantage of poor Nigerians.
He wrote: “ It is grossly insensitive, wicked and deliberately callous for Government to increase pump price of petrol in a time like this.
“Men of good conscience will not watch the lives of poor Nigerians taking for granted with outrageous ignominy by a stationary Government.”
