The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to sack top government officials indicted in the House of Representatives committee report on fuel subsidy regime.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who said this yesterday in a statement, also advised the president to apologise to Nigerians for January fuel subsidy removal as the report has shown that the removal was an error of judgement that has left Nigerians feeling cheated by their government, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has said.
Mohammed also advised the president to sack those who wrongfully advised him on the subsidy removal, especially the officials who wasted public funds in organising stakeholders' meetings which, "as it turned out, was an orchestrated scam."
He said it was "disheartening that against all informed advices, even from well-informed industry insiders and analysts, President Jonathan approved the removal of fuel subsidy and went ahead to defend it.
"He should be humble enough to admit it and apologise. After the apology, the President should then revert the fuel price to the pre-January price of N65 per litre and then proceed to implement the recommendations of the committee without delay, especially the prosecution of all indicted persons and companies," he said.
