Fuel Scarcity: Commuters Groan, As Transport Fares Increase In Ogun by Realsman405(m): 6:30pm On Dec 22, 2017

Commuters travelling on both intra and intercity routes in major cities in Ogun State, groaned on Friday, as commercial vehicle operators increase fares virtually on all routes, due to the current scarcity of the Premium Motor Spirit popularly know as petrol.

The increase on the both intra and intercity routes ranged between 50 and over 100 per cent.

A trip from Sango-Ota to Abeokuta which hitherto costs between N300 and N400, saw the commercial drivers charging commuters between N700 and N800.

Transport fare from Mowe to Abeokuta that used to be N400 had jumped to N1000.

Also from Sagamu to Abeokuta, the transport fare had jumped from N400 to N800.

A commuter, Mrs Kemi Olawale, who travelled from Mowe to Abeokuta for a social function on Friday told our correspondent that she paid N1,000.

She lamented that it was not easy to pay that additional N600, she called on the Federal Government to intervene and do something in solving the fuel scarcity.

She said, “From Mowe, we used to pay N400 to Abeokuta, but this morning it has increased to N1,000 due to fuel scarcity.

“Paying that extra N600 is not easy. And for a return trip, that is additional N1,200. This is too much.”

Also Mr. Lekan Adewoye, who came into Abeokuta from Abeokuta from Sagamu, also gave a tale of woes.

He said despite that he had to pay N800 for a trip that should be between N300 and N400, he had to scramble at the terminus with other passengers to secure a seat.

He said, “Despite the fact that I had to N800 for a trip that hitherto cost between N300 and N400, I had to scramble for a seat with other commuters at the terminus in Sagamu. For how long will this suffering continue?”

Also Alhaja Aminat Hussein told our correspondent that she paid N700 for a trip from Abeokuta to Ilaro.

She said the trip before the fuel scarcity costs between N300 and N400.

“It is not easy having to pay extra N400 for a trip that is less than an hour, ” she lamented.

Commuters travelling on intra-city routes such as Brewery to Oke Ilewo, Oke Ilewo to Kuto, and Pansheke to Kuto among others also suffered fare increase of between 50 and 100 per cent.

Meanwhile, long queues were seen in many filling stations in the capital city, Sango-Ota, Ifo and Ijebu Ode among others.

Dear Nigerians, Please, please, please get your voter's cards ready. If you don't have one (and you are eligible), go and apply for and get one. We NEED to teach some people a lesson or two in 2019...

Permit me to copy this. To those still supporting this government, I would say they are the true enemies of Nigeria !!!! I dare say we are the ones undoing ourselves. Imagine an illiterate on the street convincing an educated person that an illiterate 78 years old man is better than an educated 54 yrs old PhD holder.

More reason why God will punish that Foolani cow in the Aso rock.. The mor0n has only succeeded in bringing more hardships to the citizen of this country.

Buhari is all shades of incompetence and total failure right from his reign as a Military president up till date.

Well what do we xpect from an illiterate whose school certificate was a point of argument and controversy when he was running for the presidency in 2015?

That should have been a warning sign for Nigerians then, buh unfortunately not and Alas, this idiot ended up becoming the president..

Buhari and your cohorts, may it never be well with you all...

Iseeee..... angry

Why this suffer on our people.

Do our leaders understand we are human beings?

The same human beings you see in Switzerland, Norway, Canada, Iceland & Denmark.

Countries with and without much mineral resources.

I pray we get there some day.

Buhari has succeeded in killing the masses and the enabling business environment with his inimical and unavailing policies, his incapacitations and his incompetency.He should resign As XMAS GIFT to nigerians if he has a sense of empathy for Nigerians.
