“Services are not rendered, yet we are compelled to pay estimated bills. You will recall that this government spoke a lot on subsidy and even promised to build refineries.

“We depend a lot on oil, so any hike in fuel price will automatically have adverse effects, but successive governments have consistently done that,” the leaders complained.
