The Action Democratic Party (ADP) yesterday said it was a shame that President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot find lasting solution to the recurring incidence of fuel scarcity in the country.
The ADP national chairman, Engr. Yabagi Sani, in a statement signed by the Party’s Director of Media and Publicity, Kayode Jacobs, said one of the major reasons Nigerians trusted their destinies in the hands of President Muhammadu Buhari was the boast on having solutions to rampant fuel crises and subsidy regime.
Sani, who said that the queues were back after only two years, noted that “the government had remained helpless with evidence that nothing concrete had been done to permanently solve the problem.”
The ADP boss flayed Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for saying that the NNPC and not government was paying subsidy at this time, asking whether NNPC was different from government.
“Who is responsible for the shameful handling of the fuel crisis and on whose behalf is NNPC doing business?” Sani queried.
He added that “it is a shame that the government is still faced with the option of having to approve increment in pump price or pay subsidy.”
