The Peoples Democratic Party has said its presidential candidate has worked out a valuing layout that will quickly crash the increase cost of fuel in the nation, when he progresses toward becoming President in 2019.

The PDP said the President Muhammadu Buhari-drove All Progressives Congress administration had neglected to do the needful over the most recent three years.

This was contained in an announcement marked by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Thursday.

The PDP said it was against the alleged increase of the official prices of diesel and kerosene, stating that such would bring more economic pressure on the already impoverished nation, as most businesses and homes across the country heavily depended on the products for sustenance.

Ologbondiyan revealed that the PDP had been in high level talks with top international players in the oil and gas industry, adding that the party’s engagements “have shown that the appropriate pump price of fuel in the Nigerian market, under the current subsidy regimes of the Buhari Presidency, should be within the borders of N87 to N90 per litre as against the N145 currently being charged.”

He said with the current price template of crude oil in the international market, the Buhari administration “has no justification to keep the pump price of fuel at N145 per litre and watch Nigerians groan under the weight of high prices, while a cabal at the presidency loots the funds meant to subsidise the product.”

He added, “For every N145 paid for a litre of fuel, the Presidency cabal diverts a hidden N58 which Nigerians have continued to pay since the fuel price was increased from N87 to presumably subsidised cost of N145.”

Attempts to get a reaction from the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, were unsuccessful. Calls to his mobile phone indicated that he was unavailable.
