Former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebere Jonathan has blasted suffering Nigerians over the failed present All progressives Congress (APC) government led by the President Muhammadu Buhari. The ex-president said that he is surprised that those who criticized him over the pump price of fuel, have since been silent now that it has been increased.

Speaking at his office in Abuja on Tuesday, when he received one of the National Chairmanship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Professor Tunde Adeniran and members of his campaign team in his office, Jonathan said he was surprised that those who criticised him for leaving the pump price of fuel at N87 per litre, are not speaking out now that it has been increased to N143.

In 2012, the Jonathan led government increased the fuel price from N67 to N97, but later reduced it to N87 in January 2015, as at then the reduction in the pump price of fuel was seen as political move in campaign for the presidential election that year.

The former president who defended the decisions he took on the price of fuel said the PDP led Nigerians well in its 16 years of bring in power, "even though some people came up with propaganda and lies that 16 years of the party in government was a waste."

Jonathan's Spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze quoted him saying: "My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97, at a time that global crude price was going for over 100 dollars.

" The pump prices was later reduced to N87, when the price of crude oil dropped, and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower.

"Those who criticised my administration are not talking agaon, how that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel, SBD the pump price of petrol is N143"
