Negative reactions have continued to trail the increase in pump price for petrol to N151.56
The PDP, on its part, described the increment as “callous, cruel and punishing,“ and demanded that it should be reversed to avert “a national crisis.”
Reacting to the statement from the opposition party, the Presidential spokesman expressed that the opposition party was just being deceitful.

Don't allow the PDP to deceive you. Amidst acute shortages, they sold petrol at N600 per litre on Easter Sunday in 2013 (See Punch published on that day). pic.twitter.com/W58V2ZwVy6
