Daniel Bwala, an aide to the 2023 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has faulted the Federal Government over the hike in the pump price of fuel.
Bwala lamented that Nigerians are going through renewed ‘shege’ with the sudden hike in the pump price of fuel.
He wondered why Nigerians are forced to buy fuel at the international market price while workers are not paid the international minimum wage.
Tweeting, Bwala said former President Muhammadu Buhari warned Nigerians when he was seen trekking around Daura, Katsina State, a few days ago.
According to Bwala: “We are forced to buy the fuel at the international market price, but are our workers paid the international minimum wage rate? Is our living conditions equal to international standards? The last time IBB implemented the world bank or IMF structural adjustment program, Nigeria went into world bank or IMF slave market.
“The other day Buhari was speaking to us through parables when he was trekking in the street of Daura instead of driving. But we didn’t get the message. We are about to experience renewed shege walahi.
“Chai, the price of fuel e dan climb ohh. Walahi tallahi, e Dey hot for pocket. Dollar sep I don climb to 815 naira. Our hope I Dey renew?”
On Tuesday, NNPC increased the pump price of petrol to about N617 per litre.
This is coming shortly after the petrol price was increased to over N500 per litre following the removal of fuel subsidy.
