Sani opposes 'deceptive' removal of fuel

12 May 2016, 20:26

Abuja - Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central, has opposed the removal of the petroleum subsidy saying it would worsen the people's challenges.

The lawmaker said the decision of the current government would amount to outright deception for those who led millions of people out to  protest against pump price increase and against subsidy removal by previous government few years ago.

“My position remains unchanged, crystal clear and unwavering. I stand opposed to the removal of petroleum subsidy and I stand opposed to increase in pump price of petroleum products,” Sani said.

“It will do nothing other than add to the suffering and further impoverish the masses of our people,” he added.

The removal of the subsidy is among plans the government believes would address problems in the sector, which have to a head recently following shortages.

“It amounts to capitulation and outright deception for those of us who led millions of people out in the street a few years ago against pump price increase and against subsidy removal to now give economic excuses to justify the same,” argued Sani.
