Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has urged marketers to revert to the old price of petroleum motor spirit in order to lessen the sufferings people are currently passing through.
This was made known by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sanusi Bature, in a statement made available to the press.
Bature said the governor made this appeal while sympathizing with the people of the state on the needless hardship imposed on them due to the price hike following the fuel subsidy removal by the President, Bola Tinubu.
Governor Yusuf noted that the marketers have old stock and should be considerate in selling at the former price.
Expressing displeasure at the situation, he appealed to Kano residents to remain calm, assuring that his administration is committed to ensuring that Kano as a commercial hub is favourable for people doing business.
President Tinubu during his inaugural speech on Monday said the era of subsidy payment on fuel has ended.
He said the 2023 Budget made no provision for fuel subsidy and more so, subsidy payment is no longer justifiable.
The President’s pronouncement had an immediate impact across the country as oil marketers hiked the prices of petroleum products.
