Today, 28th of March 2021 as being reported by Vanguard news, minister for Labour and employment, Chris Ngige has made an important announcement to calm Nigerians over the price hike of fuel in the country. The minister said, "We're working tirelessly to reduce hardship to the minimal level in the country in lieu to the petrol price hike."
He assured Nigerians that there won't be any fuel hike in price at this moment until the ongoing discussions over the issue are being settled.
As well know that few weeks ago, there rumours that the fuel pump price had increased to 212 naira litre, a lot of outrage reactions were shown and few hours time, the rumours were cleared and it was stated that it was an error.
It will be very difficult for Nigerians in this harsh economy to still face the cruelty behind increasing fuel pump price. A lot of Nigerians feel it should be reducing but 87 naira, they're now buying fuel doubled of the latter price.
It's so sad that Nigerians are bearing a lot of things but on this issue, Chris Ngige promised under the jurisdiction of the vice president, professor Yemi Osinbajo, there will be no hike in fuel price until they are done with the negotiations.
