Adamu Salihu, a resident of Kano and a supporter of President Bola Tinubu, expressed deep concern over the recent fuel price hike. After the subsidy removal by Tinubu, fuel prices soared from N195 per liter to N530 and further to N617 in Abuja and N620 in Kano.
Salihu, hailing from Bichi LGA in Kano State, stated that this increase has had a severe impact on his family, and it goes against what they voted for in the last election. He lamented that his children, who also supported the current government, are now unable to attend school and have resorted to selling ‘Awara’ due to the hardship caused by the fuel price hike.
Frustrated with the situation and feeling let down by their representatives, Salihu mentioned that if the situation does not improve, they might be compelled to take matters into their own hands, despite being law-abiding citizens. He emphasized that the hardship they are facing is primarily a consequence of the fuel price increase and the lack of effective representation. Fuel queues have resurfaced in Abuja, Kano, and other parts of the country as a result of the recent hike.
