Deji Adeyanju, a popular socio-political activist, has raised an alarm over surreptitious moves to hike the pump price of fuel in Nigeria.

He alleged that they are planning to increase the price of fuel to N450 per litre.

In a series of tweets, the activist accused the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government of planning to kill
Nigerians with suffering and hunger, despite the promise of change.

He also lamented over the expensive cost of food under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

He wrote: “They are planning to increase fuel price to N450 per liter. The clowns that promised CHANGE in 2015 are determined to kill Nigerians with suffering and hunger.

“Bag of beans under corruption = N12,000, Bag of beans under integrity = N75,000

“Is integrity not wonderful?

“Bag of sugar under corruption = N8,000.

“Bag of sugar under integrity = N26,500.

“What Buhari cannot destroy does not exist.”

Recall that Zainab Ahmed, Minister of Finance, had said fuel subsidy is costing Nigeria resources that should have been used for education and health.

She noted that it’s crucial for the country to exit fuel subsidy regime in 2023, stressing that fuel subsidy is a “major drain and waste” on Nigeria’s economy.
