The pump price of petroleum products has recently been the talk of the nation as its price spiked recently but the All Progressives Congress has stated and assured the Nigerians that it would not be spiked further in the nearest future.
The All Progressive Congress Secretary of the Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, gave the assurance on Tuesday 20th, April 2021 in Abuja.
He spoke at an event organised by the All Progressive Congress Professionals’ Forum at the party’s national secretariat to showcase the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Akpanudoedehe, who represented the Chairman of the Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Gov. Mai Mala Buni, thanked the forum for enlightening Nigerians on the achievements, programmes and policies of the administration.
He stated that the party had frowned upon any plans of increment in petroleum pump price and rejected it as they said the time is not ripe.
He also assured the forum that the All Progressive Congress leadership would continue to partner with it, adding that Buhari is a listening President.
He further charged members of the forum to take advantage of the party’s ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise as a way of contesting elections as professionals. He added that the party is looking for educated people to contest for every available position in Nigeria, saying that everyone was allowed to key into the Buhari-led administration’s programmes.
He further stated that recently people were collecting loans and COVID-19 palliatives and benefiting from other social programmes of the Federal Government.
