Petrol Scarcity Triggers Protest In Edo

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Hundreds of Nigerians took to the streets of Benin City in Edo State on Monday morning to demonstrate against fuel scarcity and increased fuel prices.

SaharaReporters shared a video showcasing protesters blocking roads and setting alight fires, their efforts fueled by the high cost of petrol with many stations selling at up to N400 per litre.

This figure is significantly higher than the official price set at N165 per litre, although the government are accused of increasing this silently to N185 per litre.

In light of these issues, President Buhari set up a committee chaired by himself as Minister for Petroleum Resources and alternate chairperson Timipre Sylva.

Additionally, there have been reports that Nigeria was losing an estimated 700,000 barrels of crude oil daily due to activities of smugglers and other forms of illegal activity.

The committee led by President Buhari is aiming to tackle these issues and eliminate fuel scarcity in Nigeria by October 2022.
