The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has berated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the increase in the price of petrol from N537 to N617.
The President had during his inauguration on May 29 announced the removal of subsidy on fuel which then increased a litre from N195 to N537.
Speaking with Tribune Online in Abuja, NNPP’s national publicity secretary, Dr Agbo Major, said the step taken by President Tinubu so far on fuel increase is not fair to Nigerians.
He said rather than bring relief to Nigerians, the increase in fuel price has further impoverished them while those in the oil sector and corridors of power are smiling to the banks.
Agbo, however, added there is a limit to what Nigerians can take while calling on Tinubu to rethink his economic policies and not push Nigerians to the wall.
