A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State, Chief Ayo Akande, has said Nigerians are impatient and lack understanding on why the Federal Government increased the price of fuel. In a statement released on Sunday, he urged Nigerians to be patient and cooperate with the Government saying things will be fine in no time. He also urged Labour to cancel their proposed strike saying it wasn’t necessary. Part of his statement reads;

“President Buhari means well for Nigeria. All we need to do as citizens is to cooperate with the government, support him with prayers and exercise patience. On the fuel price hike, I believe Nigerians are impatient and lack the understanding of the whole issue. This thing should have been done two years ago.

“We should have deregulated the downstream oil sector a long time ago. Very soon, Nigerians will begin to see the effect of that decision. The price would have gone down. The queues would totally disappear and Nigerians would live comfortably. I am very sure that by June 2017, the stability that the government wants would have been achieved.”
