State governors have expressed their support for the Federal Government’s decision to increase the price of Premium Motor Spirit from N87 to N145 despite the increasing opposition to the development.
Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of a meeting of the Nigeria Governors Forum held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting which started at about 8.45pm on Wednesday ended in the early hours of Thursday.
“We supported it (increase in fuel pump price) because we believe that it is in the interest of the masses,” Amosun told reporters.
While saying that the Federal Government means well for all Nigerians, the governor said the increase was one of the sacrifices that must be paid by all.
