Former lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye has condemned the increase in the pump price of petroleum in the country.
The increment was approved by Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC on Wednesday.
The new price has since stirred reactions from Nigerians on social media.
Reacting to the hike in fuel price, the former lawmaker from Kogi pointed out that carrying out the act at this time shows the wickedness, insensitivity, and callousness of the government.
See his tweet below:
It is grossly insensitive, wicked and deliberately callous for Government to increase pump price of petrol in a time like this. Men of good conscience will not watch the lives of Poor Nigerians taking for granted with outrageous ignominy by a stationary Government. SDM pic.twitter.com/w3h5bpkfIj
