Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Sen. Dino Melaye has urged the National Chairman of his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Odigie Oyegun, to ask President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal government to reverse the recently announced increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, otherwise known as petrol. The federal government had increased pump price of petrol from N86.50 to N145 per litre.
“My sincere advise is for the National Chairman of our party to suggest that the federal government immediately reverse the announced increase in the pump price of PMS. If after seven days from Monday, there is no reversal, I will mobilize Nigerians from all walks of life for the mother of all protest,” he wrote on his Facebook Page on Thursday.
“This is not what we promised Nigerians. The time is not right and the negative effects will be unbearable. A word is enough for the wise.”
