‘What Atiku Will Do If Elected’ – Dagogo

A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Farah Dagogo, has assured Nigerians that a vote for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, will put an end to the perennial scarcity of petroleum products and other sundry problems facing the country that have remained intractable.

Dagogo, who represents Degema/Bonny Federal Constituency of Rivers State, made the call in a statement made available to journalists in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
He expressed concerns over the genuineness of subsidy payments for petrol, now said to be over N400bilion monthly, by the Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari.

While sympathising with Nigerians, who were made to face untold hardship by queuing long hours for petrol sold at exorbitant prices between 350 and 400 per litre despite the ‘subsidy regime of over N400 billion monthly payments’, he lamented that there was no justification for Nigerians to be suffering in such manner alongside the scarce Naira notes.
The lawmaker said challenges of getting petroleum products and other things have already been adequately covered in Atiku’s five-point agenda tailored towards restoring Nigeria’s unity, strengthening national security, fostering economic prosperity, improve educational delivery and re-structure the polity.

Dagogo equally challenged state governors, particularly those that are already in court against the Federal Government on new Naira redesign, to extend such gusto to the high cost of petrol in spite of subsidy payments, adding that “the people are also being affected by such obnoxious policies.”

He said: “With just days to the Presidential elections, this is another clarion call to Nigerians to understand and know that the future and survival of Nigeria is paramount and more important than any individual pursuit. On the 25th of February, 2023, we all, within the voting range, will have a more than a say on the future of Nigeria.
