Fuel price increment beginning of hard times, says LP

THE Labour Party (LP) has condemned the new increment in petrol prices in the country, saying the situation is the beginning of hard times for Nigerians.

In a statement on Tuesday, LP National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, stated that the party warned Nigerians against voting for the government of All Progressives Congress for continuity.

“Recall that we had earlier warned that the bourgeoisie government in place can only enrich the upper class and inflict penury on the proletariat,” the statement read.

“You offer a paltry N8000 to a family of five and extract all they have laboured for through obnoxious policies.”

The LP’s spokesman, however, did not indicate what his party would have done differently if it had won the presidential election in February, especially as its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had, like President Bola Tinubu, promised to remove subsidy on petrol if elected president.
