Onwubiko said: “Government’s decision to reduce petrol pump price is a welcome development.
“All relevant agencies in the petroleum industry should embark on massive clamp down fuel dealers who fail to comply with the directive.’’
He urged eradication corruption in the petroleum industry to make any reduction in petrol pump price meaningful.
The HURIWA coordinator said that the impact the reduction might not be felt unless domestic refining of petroleum products resumed fully.
He urged to prosecute all those indicted in fuel subsidy fraud.
“All the stolen public money in the hands this cabal should be collected back by the government,’’ Onwubiko said.
On the forthcoming general elections, he appealed to politicians to play according to rules.
