People are responsible for this – Adams Oshiomhole laments after paying N1,000 per litre to get fuel
Adams Oshiohmole, a former Edo State Governor has joined the masses in crying out over the scarcity of fuel in the nation after he recently paid N1,000 for a litre..
For some weeks now, there has been a hike in the pump price of fuel in several parts of Nigeria. Also, queues have resurfaced in filling stations with many buying the product for as much as N500 and above for a litre.
Crying out over the crisis, the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Adams Oshiomhole said he recently bought the product at an exorbitant price during one of his campaign tours.
“On one occasion, I ran out of fuel and I had to pay N1,000 for a litre. Now, that is not funny! Somebody is responsible for that,” he said when he featured on Channels Television’s election programme The 2023 Verdict on Sunday.
“As we speak, we are spending almost N7 trillion. The minister of finance spoke to the fact that we are spending about N7 trillion for fuel subsidy and yet most Nigerians found themselves paying much more than what the market rate would be and yet we have the Petroleum Equalisation Fund,” Oshiomhole added. “So, people are responsible for this.”
He said fuel scarcity is not peculiar to President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, describing the development as a “perennial problem”.
“But that does not make it acceptable,” he said.
