Mr Jonathan had at the Nigeria Summit in Lagos on Tuesday, said his administration would still remove fuel subsidy after due consultations with Nigerians.
He was quoted as saying, “We cannot continue to waste resources meant for a greater number of Nigerians to subsidise the affluent middle class, who are the main beneficiaries(of fuel subsidy).”
But in its reaction, the CPC described the President as “uncaring” adding that since he had once said he did not give a damn, Nigerians should expect anything from him.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin who made the party’s position known in an interview said, “The President does not give a damn. Even if Nigerians masses that are already pauperised are mangled.
“Even if the country moves into anarchy, the President does not give a damn. Is it not totally out of place that you have a situation where there is no welfare Nigerians are getting from their own government?
“When Nigerians are still mourning over the bombing that took place in Kano, this government is thinking of how to further add to their sorrow.
“That is President Jonathan in his true element. A man that is anti-people and does not care about what happens to the people he claims elected him.”
