A presidential candidate of the Zenith Labour party identified as Dan Nwanyanwu has promised to reduce fuel price to 100 naira if elected as the president of Nigeria.
The promise was made by Nwanyanwu during an interview with Channels Television politics. He stated that he would use modern refineries in each geo-political zone to achieve his goal.
He added that he would fire anyone who refuses to work. He does not intend to become the petroleum minister but he would put someone in charge and give him his plan which must be implemented to achieve his goal.
In his words:
“Within six months, I will fuel for N100 in this country. I have calculated it, all these refineries will be put to use within three to four months. At the same time, we are going to install model refineries in each geopolitical zone.
“We have the resources to get these things done. It’s the political will. If people are benefiting from a system they will not allow it to go. But, I will get it done.
“This idea of subsidy is created. What is subsidizing? You’re not ashamed as a country, you’re not ashamed as a nation that your product is thrown somewhere and they will bring back just three items – petrol, kerosene and diesel.
“They take it away and we don’t talk it. I won’t let that happen under my nose. These my colleagues are involved in these deals. They cannot do it. I have nothing attached to me in relation to the perennial problems we are passing through today.
Asked if would make himself the country’s Petroleum Minister, Nwanyanwu said:
“No no no, I don’t have to be. If the (Petroleum Minister) doesn’t work I will fire him.
“I will fire you don’t work. I will give you my template. I want fuel to be sold in six months these are my ideas get it done for N100.”
