Fuel scarcity: APC appeals to Nigerians to be patient with FG

Fuel scarcity: APC appeals to Nigerians to be patient with FG

"The thinking is that by the time the scarcity persists for like one month, with Nigerians already buying at N200 per litre, the people will jump at it if petrol price is increased from N145 to N185 per litre", Fayose said in a statement last week.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, lightening up Nigerian's Christmas celebration on Sunday said the media team of President Buhari has released a documentary titled "Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel" as a yuletide gift for all.

With 2019 around the corner, the APC might suffer a backlash from Nigerian people.

"These horrendous realities imposed on us by the APC notwithstanding, we must not become despondent".

Nigerians have joined Christians around the world in the global celebration of the birth of Christ. "Of course, we can't do that again now", Adesina quoted El-Rufai as saying in the documentary. The 75-year-old president said that the goodwill he enjoys among Nigerians is the main factor that keeps him in politics.

For the first time since the outbreak of fuel shortage which has made life harrowing and traumatic for Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday broke his silence, regretting the unpleasant episode and expressing sympathy with the people.

Staff of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), have cancelled their Christmas holiday, in a bid to ensure the lingering fuel scarcity is curtailed.

According to PDP, high unemployment rate, inflation and series of corruption perpetrated under the present administration are enough evidences that President Buhari has failed woefully.

The party also queried the rationale behind spending N1billion daily to fight "technically defeated" Boko Haram when the citizens were unemployed, hungry and deprived of decent living.

The party, however, urged Nigerians to endure the hardships of APC government but asked them to be prepared to vote out the APC government in future elections.
