The Chairman of PGF and Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, condemned the price increase on what he described as “old stock” and called on Nigerians to rally behind the government’s decision to remove the subsidy.

While reiterating their support for the removal of subsidy on petrol, Uzodinma said the decision for fuel subsidy removal was reached by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, under the National Economic Council (NEC), led by former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, when they came to the realization that it was no longer possible to fund subsidy.
