Youths under the aegis of the Peoples Democratic Party National Youth Frontier, PDPNYF, has slammed the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government over the ongoing inflation in the prices of goods and services in the country.
The youth group, while lamenting the rate at which prices of goods and services have skyrocketed in the country, recalled that during the last administrations led by the Peoples Democratic Party, things were very affordable.
PDPNYF in a series of tweets on its twitter handle @PDPNYF Tuesday gave a clear analysis of how things have gone from bad to worst under the current government.
According to PDPNYF, “a bag of rice which sold for N8,500 in the PDP administration now sells for N22,000; Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol which sold for N97per litre has now been hiked to N145 per litre.
“A bag of cement which used to cost N1,400 is now N2,300.
“The Pounds and Dollar rates have increased steeply, leaving the Dollar to N420 from N187 and the Pounds from N280 to N560.”
