APC, PDP lawmakers clash over fuel subsidy

06 November 2015, 12:39

Abuja - Members of the All Progressives Congress and their counterpart from the Peoples Democratic Party clashed on Thursday over a motion on the alleged plan by President Muhammadu Buhari to remove subsidy on petrol.

The fuel subsidy removal motion, which was moved by a PDP member from Osun State, Albert Abiodun-Adigun, sought to halt the President’s alleged plan on the grounds that Nigerians would face harsher times without fuel subsidy.

However, the APC lawmakers quickly shouted him down on the excuse that the motion was 'speculative.'

An APC member from Benue State, Herman Hembe, was the first to oppose the motion.

Hembe said Abiodun-Adigun was making assumptions adding that the motion failed to produce facts suggesting that there was indeed a move by Buhari to remove fuel subsidy.

He got the backing of the House Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, who also argued that the motion was speculative.
