REVEALED: How PDP steals N100 from every litre of kerosene – Oshiomhole

The Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Thursday accused the
Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government of duping Nigerians by
selling kerosene N150 per litre instead of N50.

Oshiomhole, who said this while receiving defectors from the PDP to
the All Progressives Congress in Benin, the Edo State capital, also said
that Nigerians had been suffering since the PDP assumed power 16 years
ago.

This, he said, was because of the PDP’s dedication “to preserve the privileges of the few.”

Oshiomhole said the Federal Government had been doing this by not
allowing the masses to enjoy the benefits of the natural resources
bestowed on the country by God through shady subsidy deals on petroleum
products.

The governor said, “The man who has a shop must close by 6 pm. If he
operates beyond 6pm, he must put on a generator, and buy petrol or
diesel. For 16 years, the PDP can’t give us light. But if they leave us
in peace even in the dark, it will be bad enough but for them, that is
not bad enough.”

“From Otuoke to Benin City, to Lagos, to Ekpoma, to Iyahmo, to
Sokoto, kerosene is now between N150 and N160 per litre. For every N150
you spend in buying a litre of kerosene, the PDP steals N100 because in
the books of the NNPC, they have it on records that kerosene is N50 per
litre.”

Oshiomhole also commended the quality of the defectors, who he described as knowledgeable.

He said, “Today is not just the fact of the huge number in this hall
but it is also about the quality of the brains that have now join us;
and in a world that is knowledge-driven, it is only the party that can
parade the best brains that can drive the sustainable change that
Nigeria is currently battling with in order to bail our country from its
present political quagmire.”

The governor also likened the ruling party to “an impotent man.”
