Adams Oshiomhole – PDP Steals N100 From Every Litre Of Kerosene

The Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Thursday accused the
Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government of duping Nigerians by
selling kerosene N150 per litre instead of N50.

Oshiomhole, who said this while receiving defectors from the to the
All Progressives Congress in Benin, the Edo State capital, also said
that Nigerians had been suffering since the PDP assumed power 16 years

This, he said, was because of the PDP’s dedication “to preserve the privileges of the few.”

Oshiomhole said the Federal Government had been doing this by not
allowing the masses to enjoy the benefits of the natural resources
bestowed on the country by God through shady subsidy deals on petroleum
The governor said, “The man who has a shop must close by 6 pm. If he
operates beyond 6pm, he must put on a generator, and buy petrol or
diesel. For 16 years, the PDP can’t give us light. But if they leave us
in peace even in the dark, it will be bad enough but for them, that is
not bad enough.”

“From Otuoke to Benin City, to Lagos, to Ekpoma, to Iyahmo, to Sokoto,
kerosene is now between N150 and N160 per litre. For every N150 you
spend in buying a litre of kerosene, the PDP steals N100 because in the
books of the NNPC, they have it on records that kerosene is N50 per
