Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for reducing the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit from N145 to N125 per litre.
Oshiomhole, in his statement, described the president’s decision as progressive, responsible and compassionate.
“On behalf of the National Working Committee of our great party, the APC, I commend our dear President, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, on his decision, which received the approval of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), to reduce the pump price of petrol from N145 to N125 per litre.
“This clearly shows how progressive-minded the APC administration under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership is.
“It is also indicative of how compassionate the administration is in the desire and effort to align with the current global economic realities foisted on us by the fall in crude oil prices.
“Without a doubt, it is also, very largely, a measure of the administration’s responsiveness to the need for accountability in public finance management and openness in governance.
“It is, therefore, to the eternal credit of the APC-led Federal Government on the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari that this unprecedented decision had been taken to ensure that Nigerians benefit from the reduction in the price of Premium Motor Spirit,” he stated.
