The Nation reports that the source said “Surely we are going to discuss it when we reconvene next week. Some Senators are, no doubt, agitated about the way and manner the increase was announced while some others are bound to support the new policy.

“But it is necessary that we discuss the issue so as to let our constituents know where we stand. I can tell you, as explosive as the debate might be, the leadership of the Senate will not be opposed to the idea of debating the matter.”

The Federal Government announced the removal of fuel subsidy, and the subsequent increase in the pump price of fuel to N145 per litre on Wednesday, May 11, 2016.
