- Adams Oshiomhole, the former governor of Edo state and the ex-national chairman of the APC, has lamented buying one litre of fuel at N1,000
- Oshiomhole complained that despite spending over N7trn on fuel subsidies, Nigerians still pay for more than what the market rate should be
- According to Oshiomhole, the N7trn on subsidies does not include the petroleum development fund, adding that somebody must be held responsible
Adams Oshiomhole, the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has lamented the high cost of fuel price in Nigeria.
The former governor of Edo state, while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Sunday decried that he bought a litre of fuel for N1,000.
Oshiomhole said the situation is not funny, adding that somebody is responsible for the fuel scarcity in the country.
He said the country is currently spending almost N7 trillion on fuel subsidies but it is unfortunate that most Nigerians are paying much more than what the market rate for fuel should be.
The former national chairman of the Labour Union noted that despite the N7 trillion in fuel subsidy, there is still another petroleum equalization fund, reiterating his earlier position that some people are responsible for it.
According to him, if Nigerians feel that it is not unusual to have fuel scarcity, even from the military era down to President Olusegun Obasanjo, to Yar’Adua and Jonathan, fuel scarcity can be said to have become a perennial problem, but that does not make it acceptable.
Since January 2022, the country has been faced with fuel scarcity with high price rates in different parts of the nation.

Naira Scarcity: Knocks on Buhari, Emefiele as Kwankwaso reveals how politicians get cash for campaigns
Legit.ng earlier reported that Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the NNPP, has said the CBN policy on the new naira note is just to punish the poor Nigerian.
According to the ex-Kano governor, the notion that it will stop politicians from getting money to buy votes is a failed proposition.
The ex-Kano governor said that most of the big-time politicians share that they control in banks, or friends who can help them to mobilise the actual cash they needed for campaigns.
