Nigerians are dragging President Buhari over the price of new fuel, electricity tariff
The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has set a pump price of N162 for petrol in the southwest region.
This was prompted by a rise in the ex-depot price of the commodity by the Petroleum Products Marketing Firm, a subsidiary of NNPC. The price increased from N138 to N151.
Electricity distribution companies (DisCos) across the country also started introducing a new N66 electricity tariff regime per kwh on 1 September.
However, the moves have led a large number of aggrieved Nigerians to start dragging the President on Twitter, labeling these moves as barbaric and callous.
