— ACPN Presidential aspirant faults PDP promise on petrol price
— PDP is ignorant of Nigeria’s basic economy and it’s solutions, Ezekwesili says
The Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) has faulted the Peoples Democratic Party’s statement that it’s presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would slash the price of fuel pump price to N90 if elected in 2019. The Obiageli ‘Oby’ Ezekwesili for president 2019 campaign faulted the PDP’s claim in a statement by it’s national chairman Gani Galadima on Friday, November 2.
“Today, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) reminded us of why both they and the APC are one of the same, fielding a single candidate called #BuTiku,” the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) said.
“In a PDP statement, the party promised to “crash fuel pump price to N90”. This is 419, and it betrays the PDP candidate’s ignorance of how basic economics and the solutions Nigeria truly needs.”
“The country ended 2018 with 4trillion of Fiscal Deficit. Where will they find money to slash fuel price? Even if FG had such money, is it because they want another round of Subsidy-Slush Fund that they want to take the country deeper into the corrupted and market distorting fuel price fixing method?
“The Obiageli Ezekwesili for president 2019 campaign is all for market determined pricing which will end up more favorable to the Poor who have been and continue bearing the effect of corrupted subsidy regimes more while the rich enjoy the benefits.
“This is a reminder to Nigerians that Abubakar Atiku’s so-called and questionable business acumen does not qualify him to run this economy.
“Obiageli Ezekwesili is the only candidate in the race who has built and rebuilt national economies in Nigeria and outside, with a track record to show for it,” the statement added.
