Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has condemned the continuous hike in the prices of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise known as petrol across the country.
Iba Gani Adams stated that the effects were biting very hard on Nigerian citizens and had put the entire nation on its knee.
Iba Gani Adams stated this on Thursday in his reaction as Nigerians have been pouring out their minds on the incessant price increase of petroleum products in the country, insisting that Nigerians can no longer bear the hardship.
He said: “We know how much we buy fuel before now. Nigeria is yet to survive the subsidy removal that led to the sudden increase in the price of fuel from N187 to N500 per litre before it was jerked up now to N617 per litre within two months. It is painful. No sensitive government would be happy when the citizens are suffering.
“It is imperative for me to speak up, especially, with what we are experiencing now in the country. It is unfortunate. This is not what we expect from a President that is coming from the South-West region of the country.
“As a product of this democratic struggle, a political activist and the father of the nation, President Bola Tinubu must know that the citizens are his children. Therefore, a father must work on the best way to solve the problem of the children.
“With the present situation in the country, three state governors have declared a three-day week for civil servants in their respective states. The national leadership of the College of Education Academic Staff Union had directed its members nationwide to attend their respective workplaces only two days a week.”
