The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams has reacted to the increase in the price of petroleum by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited.

The recent increase is coming after the new President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced the removal of fuel subsidy. Nigerians across the country are 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 moved up now to N617 per litre within just two months.

Reacting to the development, Gani Adams, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said “such skyrocketing increase in fuel price has never happened in Nigeria’s history.”

According to The Punch Newspaper, Gani Adams noted; ”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.”

He added; “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”

He stated further; “Nigeria runs an informal economy and PMS is the most important energy source in Nigeria, therefore, President Tinubu has to retrace his step in order to save the country from this hardship”
