Task force faults PDP on kerosene distribution at ACN rallies


BENIN CITY—THE Edo state Committee on the Effective Distribution of Kerosene products in the state, has described as diabolic and attempt to play politics with the welfare of the citizens of the state, the claim by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state that the committee is distributing kerosene in Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, rallies in the state.

A member of the Committee and the Special Assistant to the Governor on Politics and Strategy, Aiyemekhue Edokpolo, berated the PDP for playing politics “even with the welfare of the people of the state”, adding that it was an indication that the party is ignorant of the exercise which according to him, was an arrangement between the NNPC, some state governments and private firms.

He said: “We wish to make categorically clear that the sentiment and insinuations raised by the PDP is diabolic and malicious and an attempt to call a dog a bad name in order to hang it because the kerosene initiative is a federal and state governments programmes aimed at reducing the sufferings of consumers in Nigeria and the policy is such that states that are interested work assiduously and with extra ordinary measures to get a Federal Government and NNPC approval before it is granted and allocation is given to private firms who are so accredited by the Ministry of Petroleum Resources.”
