Spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari. Femi Adesina, says the difference between his principal and former President Goodluck Jonathan is trust.

Adesina said this in response to Jonathan’s comments on the reaction of Nigerians to the hike in petroleum products under Buhari.

Jonathan said: “My government was severely criticised for increasing the pump price of petroleum from N67 to N97 at a time that global crude price was going for over 100 dollars while he received Tunde Adeniran, a chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Abuja on Thursday. “

The pump price was later reduced to N87 when the price of crude oil dropped and they attacked us that it was supposed to be lower. Those who criticised my administration are not talking again now that the global crude oil is about 53 dollars per barrel and the pump price of petrol is N143.”

However, Adesina in a tweet on Friday, said: “When petrol went to N145 under PMB, Nigerians held their peace, unlike when they shut the country in 2012. The difference is trust. Simple.”

Accusing the ruling party of spreading propaganda and lies, Jonathan descended on Babatunde Fashola, minister of power, works and housing, who as governor of Lagos, said a serious government must be able to fix the power sector.

Jonathan said the Buhari government had not been able to achieve its promise on power since it took over from him on May 29, 2015.
