The Peoples Democratic Party( PDP)has vehemently rejected the N108 ex-depot fuel price and insisted on N70 pump price.

This was made known via a statement on the official Twitter handle of the opposition Party.

“The @OfficialPDPNig rejects Federal Government’s pinch in ex-depot price of fuel to N108 liter, insisting on a new pricing template that must accommodate a pump price of between N60 to.

“N70 per liter to reflect the crash in the price of crude oil and petroleum products in the international market.

“The party describes the N108 ex-depot price as fraudulent and a far cry from the appropriate pump price template that should not exceed N70 given the prevailing situation in the international oil market.

“The @OfficialPDPNig notes that the N108 ex-depot price with a projected additional N9 per liter Expected Open Market price is therefore completely unacceptable to Nigerians.

“Moreover, the Federal Government has continued to shroud the indices and parameters it is using in determining domestic prices of petroleum products in secrecy. Such parameters obviously cannot be in tandem with the appropriate situation in the global industry.

The @OfficialPDPNig laments that the @OfficialAPCNg-led federal government has continued to shortchange unsuspecting Nigerians since the beginning of the year by refusing to end its corrupt interferences…

“And allow market forces to determine pump price of fuel to reflect current global prices.

“Our party insists that the Federal Government has no reason to continue to fleece Nigerians particularly in the face of worsening economic crisis occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic which it had also failed to effectively handle.

“The @OfficialPDPNig demands that the @OfficialAPCNg Federal Government should immediately reduce both the ex-depot and pump price as well as surrender the billion of naira accruable as overcharge from…

“The inappropriate fuel pricing since the crash in crude oil price and channel the funds as palliatives to Nigerians.

“The party charges the @NNPCgroup not to waste further time in addressing Nigerians on its confession of sleazy and over-bloated oil subsidy regime in the last five years which included a hazy under-recovery for unnamed West African countries, running into trillions of naira.

“Indeed, Nigerians must not continue to be fleeced with high fuel prices while stolen subsidy and accruable overcharges are looted by a few individuals operating as a cabal in the @OfficialAPCNg.led administration.”
