PDP opposes removal of fuel subsidy

The Peoples Democratic Party has opposed the proposition for the removal of fuel subsidy .

The PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Diran Odeyemi, told our correspondent in Abuja on Monday that President Muhammadu Buhari ’ s administration would be committing a sin to remove the subsidy which would inflict more hardship on Nigerians .

He said the advice by the International Monetary Fund for the fuel subsidy removal would not be helpful to Nigerians.

Odeyemi said , “It is a sin to add to the burden of the suffering masses of Nigeria , especially at this time when food , employment and security of lives and property have been a problem .

“ The IMF dictation, for whatever reason , cannot work in Nigeria, and I am sure Nigerians will reject any hardship at this time . ”

IMF Managing Director , Christine Lagarde , had on Thursday , during the opening ceremony of the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings in Washington DC advised Nigeria to remove fuel subsidy and use the savings to upgrade social infrastructure.
