The Nigerian in Diaspora group (NIDO) has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari and the minister of petroleum for state, Ibe Kachikwu for new pump price of fuel in Nigeria.

In a statement signed by the United Kingdom coordinator of the group, Adeka Onyilo, NIDO said the president and his junior minister of petroleum have carved out niches for themselves in the country’s history.

While describing the increase in petrol price as the beginning of economic rebirth in Nigeria, the  group said the duo deserve laurels for daring to do the right thing for Nigerians.

“The inherited rot that left Nigerians suffering on fuel queues was becoming an international embarrassment until President Buhari took the bull by the horn,” Onyilo said.

He said: “The cartel that acquire FOREX from government under the guise of importing petrol only embark on round tripping has been severed from the supply chain and should leave the government with some money to invest in other sectors that will touch the lives of citizens across board.”


He further urged the president and the minister to ensure that Nigerians who now have to pay realistic prices for petrol are not shortchanged by fraudulent marketers who tamper with their meter to under dispense the product.

“We however urged that the judicious and prudent management of the resources of Nigeria vested in the custody of the present government because this is important to the nation’s prosperity.

“We further urged the Minister to enforce the price cap as reports indicate that some outlets still sell above the computed N145 per liter. Such development can only create the cover for those opposed to change to creep on the government and populace with another price hike or petrol scarcity citing the willingness of the people to pay more as excuse,” the group added.

However, since the call off of the strike by the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Ayubba Wabba, the federal government and the labour union will for the first time meet at the negotiating table over the new petrol pump price.

The meeting is expected to hold by 2pm at the conference hall of the Office of  the Secretary General to the Government of the Federation.
