Arewa Youth Ask The Federal Government To Immediately Reverse The Petrol Pump Price… Or They Will Embark On A Nationwide Strike.
Addressing a joint news conference in Kaduna, National President of Northern Youth Council , Isah Abubakar and Chairman Nigeria Citizen Action Group, Mohammed Danlamin, said increasing pump price of petrol at a time when nations are doing more to aide her citizens out of the post COVID-19 pandemic is highly insensitive, callous and ridiculous.
The northern youths stated that the major stakeholders in government who led the Buhari administration to hike the price of oil, should resign voluntarily because their action had the potential of inciting Nigerians against the government.
We therefore condemned the hike in the pump price of petrol and asked for the immediate reversal.
However, the group threatens to mobilize Nigerians for a nationwide protest on Tuesday, July 14th, If the Federal government fails to reverse the pump price of petrol.
