Kola Ologbondiyan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday advised the Federal Government to announce the total removal of petroleum subsidy and under-recovery through a policy statement.

The PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, demanded a forensic audit of 60 million litres of petrol that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) claimed it was importing under its former Group Managing Director (GMD), Dr. Maikanti Baru, to justify the subsidy payout.

It described the declaration by the NNPC GMD, Mr. Mele Kyari, that there would be no more subsidy and under-recovery as dramatic.
