Garba Shehu Defends Increase In Petrol Price By Buhari, Says Product Sold For N600 Per Litre Under PDP Government
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has defended the recent increase in petroleum pump price by the Nigerian Government amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many Nigerians including the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, and Nigeria Labour Congress have condemned the action of the government.
Shehu in a Facebook post to mock the PDP asked Nigerians not to be deceived by the party.
“Don’t allow the PDP to deceive you, amidst acute shortages, they sold petrol at N600 per litre on Easter Sunday in 2013 (See Punch published on that day),” he said.
