The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode has blamed the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the current fuel scarcity plaguing the country.

Fani-Kayode accused the APC of infiltrating the ranks of the fuel marketers and inciting them to cause the shortage of the product.

The PDP spokesperson stated this via a statement released on Monday, March 2. It reads:

“We know who the fuel marketers are.  We know the relationship that exists between one of the biggest fuel marketers and a national leader of the APC.  These unconscionable opposition elements infiltrated the ranks of the fuel marketers, whom they have contracted, in a calculated attempt to frustrate the good efforts of government.”

“Why have they taken this time when all hands are on deck for the March 28 elections to cause this artificial fuel scarcity?  The situation is so bad that they are not importing the product. They are even threatening tank farmers not to release any fuel in their depot in order to sustain the shortage. We are aware that the tank farmers have reported the threat to the Police and other security agencies.”

“This shows how desperate and wicked the opposition APC can be in their quest for presidential power.  Must they make Nigerians suffer simply because they want to rule?  They must desist from this act of sabotage.”

“The opposition should not take delight in celebrating over the pains and sufferings of Nigerians as they have continued to do with the Boko Haram attacks on our people and nation.”

“The APC’s penchant to diminish the gallantry of our Armed Forces in the battle to defeat insurgency in the northeast zone whilst mocking the government whenever the insurgents bomb and take over villages in the zone, must be condemned by well-meaning Nigerians.”

“This predilection exposes and portrays the APC and its leaders as forces of retrogression with a devilish mindset to unleash the worst form of anarchy on the nation before, during and after the March 28 presidential election because they know their party and presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari will be dealt a crushing blow by President Goodluck Jonathan at the polls.”

“The PDPPCO also wishes to use this medium to alert the nation on the lingering plot by the opposition elements who have been sponsoring their agents of destruction in the power sector to vandalise critical infrastructure in order to reduce the megawatts of electricity that is being generated and reverse the gains that government is making in the sector.”

Fani-Kayode has recently been engaged in a war of word with the the APC and recently accused party leader, Bola Tinubu of plotting to take powere through the back door.
