The Niger Delta Youth Council NDYC and the former Niger Delta Agitators Forum Coalition have expressed their displeasure at the recent increase in fuel prices, giving an 11-day ultimatum to the federal government to set the price of the pump in ₦ 120 per liter or risk action.

The NDYC national coordinator, Comrade Jator Abido and the coordinator of the Coalition of the former Niger Delta Agitators Forum, “General” Ebi Tamuno have the ultimatum in a joint statement issued Wednesday in Abuja.

Part of the statement says; “We will not hesitate to defend the rights of Delta Nigerians in particular and Nigerians in general. It is in this context that the members of the NDYC issue this press release demanding that the Federal Government:

“Immediately rescind this policy by reducing the supplier price of the petroleum product to the sum of N120 per liter (PMS specifically) within 11 days.

“Repair and put our refineries in immediate use to prevent incessant price increases.

“That a more robust policy in the oil industry aims to fix our refineries in a coma.

“We hereby declare that oil workers must leave the Niger Delta region within 14 days if the government does not meet our expectations. It should be noted that their safety cannot be guaranteed if the government does not revert the price of the pump to ₦ 120 ”.

Stating that Nigerians should not be held responsible for the government’s incompetence, the groups said the government should have been more humane, as Nigerians still face the challenges of the COVID-19 shutdown and the recent #EndSARS protests.

“We will not hesitate to declare a national day of action for a national protest, as the economy is hitting citizens hard.

“We call on all sister organizations and groups to wake up to this wake-up call. Nigerians cannot take responsibility for the incompetence of the government.

“However, it is regrettable that our refineries have died and have almost become a museum of oil refining equipment. Nigerians struggling against poverty have been left to their fate due to rising fuel prices. There is no justifiable reason for the exorbitant price of a product that God has abundantly blessed us with.

“Given the existing economic realities and the post COVID 19 and #EndSARS economy that have left the country without productivity in various ways; It will be a total political aberration to allow any form of price increase, be it in the electricity tariff or the price of the fuel pump, that has a negative impact on Nigerians.

“We dare to state categorically that it is an affront to the survival of Nigerians who find it difficult to feed themselves on a daily basis suffering from years of bad governance.”
