The People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO, yesterday accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being behind the present fuel scarcity in the country, by sabotaging the Federal Government’s efforts at ensuring that there was supply of Petroleum products.
A statement yesterday by the Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode said the sudden fuel scarcity in many parts of the country was because the APC had infiltrated the ranks of the fuel marketers, who had taken a sub-contract from the opposition to frustrate supplies of petrol to fuel stations as part of a grand plan to create tension in the polity.
“We know who the fuel marketers are. We know the relationship that exists between one of the biggest fuel marketers and a national leader of the APC,” Fani-Kayode claimed.
“These unconscionable opposition elements infiltrated the ranks of the fuel marketers, whom they have contracted, in a calculated attempt to frustrate the good efforts of government.”
The APC has, however, described the accusation as totally unconscionable. The party noted that the PDP-led FG had simply abdicated its responsibility to the people and should throw in the towel.
“The questions to ask are: who runs the NNPC? Who pays subsidy to fuel marketers? Who has used federal resources to bribe individuals and groups to such a level that there is no money to run the government, not to talk of paying subsidies?” a statement by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said.
