NBA advises govt against new fuel pump price

21 March 2013, Abuja – The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has advised the Federal Government against increasing the pump price of petroleum products.
Mr Okey Wali, president of the association, gave the advice while speaking with newsmen at the launch of NBA Web-Portal in Abuja.

“It would be ill-advised for President Goodluck Jonathan to go ahead with an increment of the pump price without the provision of palliatives for the people.

“The government is yet to provide infrastructure, social services and important palliatives promised the masses during the oil subsidy protest,” he said.
