Hike in Electricity & Fuel : “Nigerians May Resort To Suicide” – PDP Warns

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has warned that the hike in electricity tariff and price of petrol may increase the rate of suicide.

PDP also warned that the increment may lead to Nigerians resorting to slavery abroad.

The opposition party was reacting to a remark by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Nigerians paying less for electricity and petrol.

Mohammed had said the price of petrol and electricity tariff in Nigeria was one of the lowest in Central and West Africa.

However, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan described Mohammed’s assertion as irrational.

He stressed that the hike was insensitive.
In a statement he issued yesterday, Ologbondiyan said:

“We remind President Buhari that this hike will worsen the scary situation in the last five years, where compatriots are resorting to suicide, slavery mission abroad as well as selling of their children as options.

“PDP therefore rejects the highly irrational argument by the Minister of Information, Mohammed, that fuel price is lower in some West African countries, without presenting the contradictory economic settings in those countries and ours.”
