Sylva maintained that cynicism and deceit have by no means been the trademark of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
“I’ll prefer to equally guarantee you that the engagement with the organised labour and different stakeholders will proceed even because the calculations to reach at an affordable worth regime are being executed; all in good religion and you’ll be availed of the ultimate final result on the acceptable time.
“Till then, all entrepreneurs are strongly suggested to take care of the present pump worth of PMS earlier than the emergence of this unlucky data.
“Those that could need to reap the benefits of this unlucky data to extort Nigerians shouldn’t give in to such temptations as there are regulatory mechanisms that authorities can implement to guard its residents.
“In conclusion, I need to sincerely apologise to all Nigerians for any misery and inconvenience the unlucky data may need brought on, “he mentioned.
