.Senate President Saraki And Marafa Disagree Over N2.4bn Fuel Subsidy Daily Payment

Senate President Bukola Saraki and Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources Senator Kabiru Marafa, on Wednesday disagreed over the alleged daily payment of N2.4 billion to subsidise fuel in the country

The Senate President had claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration was spending N2.4bn to subsidize 50million litres every day.

Saraki at a programme aired on African Independent Television, yesterday noted that, “It is shocking and alarming that the current administration in the country claimed that Nigerians are consuming 50 million litres of fuel every day and for two years, they did it without appropriation. What type of integrity are we talking about when a government claims to have been spending N2.4 bn?

Marafa in an interview with reporters on Wednesday sharply disagreed with Saraki. The Zamfara Central lawmaker insisted that findings by his committee showed that Nigerians were not consuming more than 30 million of litres of fuel per day.

He also noted that it was not possible for the country to spend up to N2.4bn ever day to subsidize fuel consumption.
