Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has said that the Federal Government is creating scarcity of fuel, so it can fulfil its plan to increase fuel price to N185 per litre.
He said “Already, fuel is being sold officially at between N180 and N200 at petrol stations across the country.
“It is sad that this Buhari’s APC government had to choose this Christmas and New Year period to ground Nigeria with the fuel scarcity that it deliberately orchestrated.
“It is obvious that the president has failed in all ramifications and he needs to do Nigerians a favour by relinquishing the portfolio of minister of petroleum.
“Like I said a few days ago, what the federal government is doing is to create scarcity so that Nigerians will be willing to buy at any price, provided the product is made available.
“It was to achieve this planned increment of petrol pump price that they restricted supply of petrol to NNPC alone.”
