A former Edo State Governor Adams Oshiohmole has lamented the scarcity of fuel and the hike in the pump price of the product, claiming he recently paid N1,000 for a liter.
In several parts of Nigeria, queues have resurfaced in filling stations with many buying the product for as much as N500 and above for a liter.
It, however, appears the masses are not the only ones affected by the crisis as the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain 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 liter. Now, that is not funny! Somebody is responsible for that,” he said when he was featured on Channels Television’s election program The 2023 Verdict on Sunday.
