Former Peoples Democratic Social gathering, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over his latest comparability of Nigeria’s gas value with that of Saudi Arabia and different international locations paying increased.


Talking via his Media Aide, Paul Ibe, Atiku described Buhari’s comparability as, “pointless and pointless.”


Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had mentioned gas will now be offered at N161 per litre in Nigeria.


Talking throughout his Independence Day nationwide broadcast, Buhari had famous that different nations reminiscent of Ghana, Niger, Chad Saudi Arabia promote petrol at a better value than Nigeria.


Faulting the president’s comment, Ibe puzzled why Buhari would evaluate Nigeria with Saudi Arabia, which pays a minimal wage of over Three Hundred Thousand Naira.


Based on Ibe: “That comparability is pointless and pointless as a result of the state of affairs in Saudi Arabia is completely different from Nigeria, I’m advised, although but to confirm that minimal wage in Saudi Arabia is equal of N375, 000 so why will you evaluate such international locations.

“It’s like evaluating oranges and apples if not why you now evaluate an economic system the place the minimal wage is N375, 000 to that whose minimal wage is N30,000.

“The comparability is pointless, pointless and there may be no justification. At this level, we have to give attention to our personal inside challenges and see how we are able to creatively handle them and that was why Atiku Abubakar had way back mentioned that subsidy because it was then was not sustainable and one thing wanted to be executed.

“Sadly, it’s coming at a time when the percentages are all staked towards Nigeria. We’re chasing the prospect of a recession, we simply got here out of COVID-19 and issues are very troublesome for thousands and thousands of Nigerians who’re attempting to make ends meet, and they’re now confronted with this.

“The timing wasn’t a sensible one, it may have been executed earlier.

“However fortunately they’ve come to acknowledge what his Atiku has been saying that the subsidy regime because it was not sustainable and doesn’t make financial actuality towards the instances we’re in.”
