By; Alex Uangbaoje & Amos Tauna Kaduna.
Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial zone, ‎Comrade Shehu Sani, has described as irrational, illogical‎ and further ways to impoverish Nigerian who are already facing enormous economic hardships, the decision by the Federal Government to increase the pump price of petroleum products.
Sani who is also the Chairman Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debt, in a statement, said the decision by NNPC is insensitive and punitive, adding that the outrageous increase in pump price is a social provocation.” 
The Statement captioned “No to fuel price increase” reads “The decision by the NNPC to increase the pump price of petroleum products is insensitive and punitive.
“Its most unfortunate that at a time when poor Nigerians are facing enormous economic hardships and are being asked to be more patient all the NNPC can do is to add to their suffering.
“It’s utterly irrational and illogical to further impoverish the people in order to achieve liberal self serving liberal economic aspirations.
“Its all evidenced that capitalist forces are holding the FG hostage and are blackmailing it to implement its inimical version of economic reforms. It makes no sense if everyone must perish in order to revamp the economy.
Economic reforms are necessary but it must be done with a human face and human heart if it’s made in the interest of human beings.
“Outrageous increase in pump price is a social provocation. Its possible to reform the oil sector without necessarily incinerating the country. We must not take the patience, the sacrifice and the good will of Nigerians for granted.
“I stand oppose to the increase in pump price and I call on PMB to weigh in on the NNPC to rescind the decision.”
