Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that the Muhammadu Buhari administration created the fuel scarcity in order to increase the price of petrol.

Fayose made the comment on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, via a statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Punch reports.

The statement reads:

“Nigerians are now left at the mercy of political liars who took over power by deception and are governing by deceit.

“When they were seeking votes from Nigerians, they promised to reduce petrol pump price from N87 to N45 per litre, they promised to create three million jobs per year, they said $1 will be equal to N1 and above all, they promised to pay unemployed youths N5, 000 stipends and provide one meal a day to pupils nationwide.

“Instead of fulfilling their promises, they have increased petrol pump price to N145 per litre, increased electricity tariffs, retrenched thousands of workers and imposed untold hardships on Nigerians.

“As they did in 2012, if labour leaders do not also stand up for the people at this time, posterity will not forgive them.”

Fayose’s comments follow the announcement by the Federal Government that petrol will now sell for up to N145 per litre due to the removal of subsidies.
