Hours After Reported Increment In Fuel Price to N212/litre, Check Out Aisha Yesufu’s tweet about it.
Everyone woke up this morning to the news on social media that there has been an increment on the price of fuel in the country. Remember that some weeks ago, this same news was released from unverifiable sources and the NNPC came out to debunk it as fake. They advise the people not to panic Because there won’t be an increment.
However,it was a shock today when it was on the news that fuel price has been increased to 212 naira from the previous price of 168 naira. We all know that the price of fuel affects so many things in our country, a slight increase will lead to hike of food price, price of transportation will greatly increase, including our house rent. Nothing will be left untouched.
Aisha Yesufu who is known to always make her voice heard has reacted. She said Nigerians should stop expecting activist to come to their aid. She said Nigeria needs more active citizens and not many activist. From my understanding, this means she might not lead any protest because of the hike in fuel price.
In another tweets, she made it known that we have trade unions, student unions, professional bodies, religious bodies, tribal associations and we have citizens, why are the streets scanty? She couldn’t believe why everybody is not on the street protesting against the new fuel price.
There’s enough economic hardship so we really hope that this news/rumor is not true because it has not been confirmed by the NNPC. However, several reactions have been flying around on social media, many people are lamenting about this development while some are already contemplating a protest in Ojota area of Lagos state.
