Abuja - The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Muhammadu Buhari, has called on the federal government to implement immediate price reduction on fuel products.
Speaking through his campaign organization, the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, on Monday asked the government to “stop stealing from Nigerians and allow them enjoy the relief that has come to consumers of petroleum products globally”.

A statement from the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC presidential campaign said it was disturbing that in spite of the fall in the global price of crude oil, Nigerians still buy petroleum products at pump prices as if the global price of crude oil had remained at $100 (USD) per barrel.
He said the current attempt by the government to deregulate the prices of some petroleum products has been completely compromised to satisfy few money bags to the detriment of the Nigerian people and the economy.
