Fuel Scarcity: APC Makes U-turn, Appeals For Patience

The ruling All Progressives Congress after its earlier statement denying the lingering fuel crisis has made a u-turn in a new statement.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the Federal Government on the current fuel crisis in the country.

A statement issued by Bolaji Abudullahi, the party’s spokesperson on Saturday, said the APC-led Federal Government was making efforts to address the situation.

“We empathise with Nigerians at this difficult time and appeal for patience with the Federal Government as it make efforts to improve the situation,” he said.

He added that government was making efforts to find lasting solution to the problem that had bedeviled every administration in the country.

“Our party acknowledges the difficulties Nigerians are currently experiencing as a result of the unfortunate fuel scarcity across the country; especially at this yuletide period.

“We understand that the Federal Government is doing everything to improve the situation and bring succor to the people as soon as possible,” he said.

The party had earlier downplayed the fuel crisis, saying on Friday there was “no real scarcity”.

Mr. Abdullahi said the APC also understood the unhappiness of Nigerians at the situation, which he noted was happening for the first time in the Christmas period since its administration came to power.

He further said while the APC accepted the choice of the opposition PDP to make “political gains” out of the development, it condemned its desperation to make the APC-led government look bad.

This, Mr. Abudullahi said, the PDP was doing by maliciously fabricating and circulating fictitious statements in the names of government and APC officials.

According to him, the PDP had continued to attack the APC on the basis of such fabricated statements, saying, “this is bad politics”.

APC'S POSITION ON FUEL SCARCITY

Our party acknowledge the difficulties Nigerians are currently experiencing as a result of the unfortunate fuel scarcity across the country; especially at this Yuletide period.

We understand that the Federal Government is doing everything to improve the situation and bring succour to the people as soon as possible.

We also understand the unhappiness of Nigerians at this situation, which is happening for the first time in the Christmas period since the APC administration came to power.

We also wish to note that while we accept the choice of the opposition PDP to make political gains out of the difficulties that Nigerians are experiencing as a result of this fuel scarcity, we however condemn their desperation to make the government and our party look bad by maliciously fabricating and circulating fictitious statements in the names of our government and party officials and then attack us on the basis of those same statements that they fabricated in the first place. This is bad politics.

Once again we empathise with Nigerians at this difficult time and appeal for patience with the Federal Government as they make efforts to improve the situation and find lasting solution to this problem that has bedevilled every administration in our country, including the PDP administration under whose government, Nigerians would recall, the oil cabal enjoyed unprecedented prosperity.
