Former governor of Kaduna state, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has joined other grunting Nigerians over the new fuel pump price fixed by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Musa, in reaction to the development in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in his State, urged the Federal Government to reverse the N145 new petrol pump price introduced on Wednesday.
The national leader of the Peoples Redemption Party opined that the government’s action would inflict more pains on Nigerians “We are in trouble; the already bad situation will get worse and it will worsen the poverty level of Nigerians,” he said.
He, however pledged support to Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) planned mass protest to compel the Federal Government to reverse the decision.
He alleged that the proceeds from the new price of the product may only benefit some persons and caucuses within government.
The former governor also urged Civil Society Organisations and well-meaning Nigerians to join in appealing to the government to reverse the decision “for the sake of the masses”.
