The government urged Burkina Faso to stop raising fuel prices


"Unexpectedly, the government of Burkina Faso has just adopted the Council of Ministers on Thursday, November 8, 2018, the criterion for adjusting hydrocarbon prices on the pump," wrote the UPC in its statement.

The document, bearing the signature of the National UPC Political Bureau, including the National Secretariat for Economy, Development and Planning, states that "after this painful decision Burkinabe found that on 9 November 2018, the increase of 75 F CFA pumps of gasoline and diesel prices , an increase of 12% and 14%.

According to Zéphirin Diabré, this measure is in the context of insecure populations that start with bitter survival after the advent of the People's Movement for Progress (MPP) regime every day.

The statement states that "this unilateral and unexpected government decision sounds like the destruction of Burkinab and requires a cold analysis of the state's position and the state of affairs of the MPP."

Therefore, UPC accuses "the strong amalgam produced by MPP to transfer its bitter tablet of incompatible rises in gasoline and diesel prices, and decides to stop it."

From November 9, 2018, the literally Super 91, which has been running since 2016, 602 FCFA has increased to 677 FCFA and diesel fuel, which has been retained for two years at the 526 FCFA, now costs 601 FCFA, which is 75 F.

Minister of Communications, Government Spokeswoman Remis Fulgance Dandjinou, at the end of the Council of Ministers, explained that this increase in fuel prices is due to various factors, including those that are external, including the cost of barrels in the international market, which has been known for a certain period of time enlargement.
