Former President Goodluck Jonathan says he is surprised that those who criticised him for leaving the pump price of fuel at N87 are not speaking out now that it has been jerked up to N143.
In 2012, Jonathan’s administration increased fuel price from N67 to N97 but reduced it to N87 in January 2015. At the time, the move was seen as political, given that it was in an election year.

Speaking on Thursday when Tunde Adeniran, one of the chairmanship aspirants of the PDP, visited him in his Abuja office, Jonathan defended the decisions he took on the price of fuel.

In what seems to be an indirect attack on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Jonathan said the PDP led Nigerians well in its 16 years of being in power “even though some people came up with propaganda and lies that 16 years of the party in government was a waste".

My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 at a time that global crude price was going for over 100 dollars,” Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan’s spokesman, quoted him as saying. The pump price was later reduced to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower.

Those who criticised my administration are not talking again now that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143.

Nigerians prefer suffering and smiling.. you did well.. excellently​.. 60% of Nigerians are baised they prefer what they are facing now to the smooth sailing we had while you were serving. Buhari is fighting corruption while all his cabinet members are indebted to corruption. 100%
