A leader of the Jigawa Concerned Forum, Comrade Umar Danjani Hadejia on behalf of members of the forum, has condemned the Federal Government’s decision to hike the pump price of fuel, and electricity tariffs, describing it as insensitive.
A protest letter written and signed by the forum’s spokesman, Comrade Danjani and made available to the press in Dutse viewed with concerns, the action of the government at this crucial moment where the country was yet to recuperate from the effects of COVID-19 pandemic as really unfortunate.
Also speaking, Comrade Bosuwa representing NGOs lambasted what he described as such an unacceptable decision of the federal government describing it as a ploy to further crucify Nigerians, as such measures will further cause untold hardship, instead of providing succour.
“I am afraid of our future, and that of our country under this siege,” he said, adding, “is that what the government will do in paying us back from what we offered to them in bringing them unto power?” He questioned.
