The President of Centre for Change and Women Arise, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin has said the the President Muhammadu Buhari administration should have taken the respite offered by the patience of the citizens as golden opportunity to fulfill its election promises of a better life for Nigerians, rather than the liberty to continue to inflict further hardship on the people.
Dr Okei-Odumakin in a statement on Sunday while reacting to the new price of petrol said the recent hike in the price of fuel and increase in electricity tariff “are woeful combination of hardship from a Goverment that was making sweet promises to the people over a year ago.”
According to the former President of Campaign for Democracy (CD), to “choose a moment when governments around the world are looking for ways to make life bearable for their peoples in the midst of coronavirus cannot be an attitude reflective of a caring government.”
The statement obtained by The Street Reporters Newspaper added that “These steps are not acceptable and should not be accepted.
“Nigerians are encouraged to rediscover themselves and say clear NO to these measures.
“While the Buhari government should have taken the respite offered by the patience of the people as golden opportunity to fulfill its election promises of a better life for Nigerians, it should not take it as liberty to continue to inflict further hardship on the people”, she stated.The Street Reporters Newspaper is your BREAKING NEWS platform.
