Northern group opposes fuel price increase, threatens mass action

Posted by on December 9, 2021 0


A group under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Groups on Wednesday condemned the plan by the Federal Government to remove fuel subsidy, threatening to mobilise the people of the region to resist it.

CNG insisted that the plan by the Federal Government to increase the pump price of fuel to N340 per litre had continued to elicit negative reactions from Nigerians.

Addressing media briefing in Gombe at the end of its North-East stakeholders meeting, the North-East coordinator, represented by the Taraba State Coordinator, Ibrahim Mohammed, said the planned increase in fuel price would increase the suffering of the people, especially in the North.

He added, “The promise to replace the oil subsidy with a payment of N5,000 stipend each to 40 million citizens is impracticable; even if it is paid, it will be benefitted by few Nigerians.”

Mohammed added, “We have resolved to sensitize all levels of northern society on their duty to support a prolonged and sustained resistance to force government to rescind the implementation of this unpopular, corrupt and inhuman policy within the next four weeks or risk an unprecedented mass action and civil disobedience.”
