The Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC), has decried the decision of the Federal Government to increase the pump price of PMS and Electricity tariff.
It therefore, described the act as callous, satanic and ungodly.
The group in Akure, the Ondo state capital, in a statement by its National President, Oluyi Tayo said, the insensitivity on the part of government is another attempt to heightened the burden of the already impoverished and completely marginalised Nigerians.
It said, “While the nation is still battling with the neck breaking and pocket unfriendly increase in the price of basic commodities important for human existence and the effect of the Corona Virus on people’s income, increasing the price of PMS and Electricity tariff is a further proof that the leadership of the Nigerian government is either unaware or uninterested in happenings in the country.
“Considering the importance of PMS and electricity to the running of the Nigeria local economy, the increase will further cause a hike in the cost of production for industries producing commodities, which will affect the price of commodities in the market.
“We call on the Federal Government to immediately reverse the price for the survival of the country or face total lockdown in the Southwest states”
