Dino Melaye Promises “Mother Of All Protests” – Kogi state senator Dino Melaye has warned the Federal Government to immediately reverse the new fuel pump price.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu had announced an increase in the pump price of petrol from N86.50 per litre to N145 per litre.
Writing on his Facebook page, Melaye promised to organize the “mother of all protests” if the pump price wasn’t reversed in one week.
“My sincere advise is for the National Chairman of party to our party to suggest that the federal government immediately reverse the announced increase in the pump price of PMS,” Mr. Melaye wrote. “If after 7 days from Monday there is no reversal, I will mobilize Nigerians from all walks of life for the mother of all protest. This is not what we promised Nigerians. The time is not right and the negative effects will be unbearable. A word is enough for the wise.”
