House of Rep sets to unravel persistent fuel scarcity


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara has expressed determination of the House to probe re-introduction of fuel subsidy in the country.









According to the speaker, “The House expects that with the cooperation given to the executive arm to increase fuel price from N87 per liter to N145, based on the assurances, fuel scarcity ought to be a thing of the past.

Dogara advised relevant Committees to get to the root of the issues to enable the House to take an informed position on the situation. He urged the lawmakers to work effectively towards achieving a balanced economy in the country.

According to him “We were also assured that fuel subsidy had come to an end. From recent developments on this subject, except the executive adduces compelling reasons why the reverse is the case, we will be justified in feeling betrayed. “Indeed at no time in the recent past has the nation’s peace and unity been so vigorously and persistently challenged,’’ he disclosed.

While describing the problems as discouraging, Dogara said that the unending fuel shortage recorded has become unbearable level.

He said the parliament must unravel the causes of this scarcity and the alleged re-introduction of fuel subsidy,

On the rash killings by the herdsmen, Dogara urged President Muhammadu Buhari to apply maximum sanctions on public officers who are incompetent in the performance of their duties.
