Former President Goodluck Jonathan has attacked those that criticized his decision for increasing fuel pump price from N67 to N97 and later reduced to N87 per litre in January 2015.
I am shocked that those who criticized me for leaving the pump price of fuel at N87 are not saying anything now that the price has increased toN143 says Ex-president.
Jonathan’s spokesman Ikechukwu Eze quoted him as saying.
“My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 at a time that global crude price was for over 100 dollars,”
“The pump price was later brought down to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped and they attacked us that it ought to be lower.
“Those who criticized my administration are not talking again now that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143.”
This was made known on Thursday, October 19, 2017 by Jonathan while receiving Tunde Adeniran, one of the chairmanship aspirants of the PDP.
Remember, during Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, the Country experienced incessant fuel pump price increase from N67 to N97 and later reduce to N87, which drew criticism from the people and Labour Union.
