‘Bring Back Buhari’ – Nigerians Slam Tinubu Over Increase in Fuel Price

The adjustment of the petrol pump price by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to N617 per litre has sparked a wave of reactions from Nigerians.

Recall that Politics Nigeria had earlier reported that the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as fuel or petrol, has increased to N617 per litre in the nation’s capital and N620 in Kano.

This development, however, has brought about intense debate amongst citizens, with many voicing their concerns and frustrations over the rise.

While some Nigerians expressed their dissatisfaction with the government of President Bola Tinubu, others said they were organizing rallies and peaceful protests to call on the government to address the issue and stabilize fuel prices.

Some Twitter users have also expressed displeasure over the increase.

@vikturino said: “What’s NLC/TUC doing about implementation of increment in workers wages and palliatives. Hmmmm.”

@Queentee_E: “May we not see shege banza o, me that depends on fuel😩,I stopped using @IkejaElectric at work bcos of inconsistency and fraudulent billings.”

@StephenSule11: “Will this new price still favour agbadorians? There are always consequences for bad choices. We could have collectively rejected a continuation of APC govt, but some thought it was best to emphasize tribal/religious supremacy.”

@abdullmaikusa_: “Understand that the recent pump price increase will have a significant impact on the masses. It’s unfortunate that people will have to suffer the consequences of this development.”

@Singularity_icp: “Nigerians are suffering despite having in abundant all it takes to produce fuel at a cheaper rate. However, the high cost of fuel persists, burdening the citizens. This situation is further exacerbated by the inconsistent power supply, which adds to their hardships. Additionally.”

@Frankech777: “Palliative announced when fuel was 450 per litre. Palliative is yet to be paid, and fuel is already 617 per litre.”

@afekhadeh: “This is outrageous! The ever increasing prices of essential goods and services in Nigeria are putting so much pressure on we the masses finances. The government needs to do something about it fast.”

Tweeting via @Waspapping, a social media user posted the picture of Buhari and captioned it: “Bring this man back!”

Meanwhile, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL) has defended the hike, attributing it to market forces.
