*Vows To Challenge NNPCL Price Hike In Court
Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana has described the decision of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) to increase pump price of PMS as illegal.
Falana, speaking on the sideline of an ongoing make or NEC meeting of the NLC, says the price template will be challenged in the court of law immediately.
Mr Falana said NNPCL has a limited liability company does not have any legal power to jack up the price of petroleum.
He urged the federal government to go back to the drawing board with a view to finding alternative solution to the problem, one of which he says includes the need to address the dollarization of Nigeria’s economy.
Falana also said Nigerians will challenge the decision, adding, however, that the solution to the fuel problem will be both legal and political.
