GEJ has mocked those that blasted his decision for taking the pump price of fuel to N87.
Jonathan said he is shocked that those who criticised him for leaving the pump price of fuel at N87 are not saying anything now that it has been hiked up to N143.
“My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 at a time that global crude price was going for over 100 dollars,” Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan’s spokesman quoted him as saying.
“The pump price was later reduced to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower.
“Those who criticised my administration are not talking again now that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143.”
GEJ’s administration increased fuel price from N67 to N97 in 2012, but reduced it to N87 in January 2015.
