Senator Shehu Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has described as illogical and irrational, the decision of the Buhari led administration to increase the pump price of petrol at this time.

Sani also said it was most unfortunate that the decision was made, adding that the move was insensitive and punitive.

He also said “At a time when poor Nigerians are facing enormous economic hardships and are being asked to be more patient all the NNPC can do is to add to their suffering.

“It’s utterly irrational and illogical to further impoverish the people in order to achieve liberal self-serving liberal economic aspirations.”

“It’s all evident that capitalist forces are holding the FG hostage and are blackmailing it to implement its inimical version of economic reforms. It makes no sense if everyone must perish in order to revamp the economy.

“Economic reforms are necessary but it must be done with a human face and human heart if it’s made in the interest of human beings,” Sani said.

Adding that the “Outrageous increase in pump price is a social provocation. It’s possible to reform the oil sector without necessarily incinerating the country. We must not take the patience, the sacrifice and the goodwill of Nigerians for granted.

“I stand opposed to the increase in pump price and I call on PMB to weigh in on the NNPC to rescind the decision.”

Shehu Sani was reportedly among those that protested against the removal of fuel subsidy and subsequent increase in fuel price which former President Goodluck Jonathan announced in 2012.
