Fuel Price Hike: Nigerian System Believes In Suffering The Masses – Ben Bruce by iwaeda: 10:55am On Mar 12
Ben Murray-Bruce, a former Bayelsa lawmaker has condemned the increase in pump price of fuel to N212 per litre.

Bruce on Friday wondered why the Nigerian system develops government policies which believes in suffering the masses.

He stressed that now is not the time for Nigerians to be spending more on fuel amid oppressive economic factors.

His tweet read: “I still will not understand a system that believes in suffering for the masses as a governmet policy"

His reaction is coming hours after the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) announced the new increment on its website, stating that it was due to the market determinants and importation costs.

PPPRA fixed the lower band of the new fuel price at N209.61 per litre and upper band at N212.61 per litre.

But the NNPC countered the announcement, insisting that there is no increase in fuel price in March.

I still will not understand a system that believes in suffering for the masses as a government policy. Someone, please educate me. Nigerians shouldn’t be paying more for fuel at this time, amid low minimum wages and other oppressive economic factors.

It is in the BEST INTEREST of Federal Government not to increase the pump price of petrol in this PERILOUS time. The reason is that any increase will boomerang with prices of goods and services skyrocketing out of control, which will SCATTER whatever is remaining of our post-COVID-19 fragile economy.

In the face of widespread insecurity, massive youth joblessness, hostile economic conditions and heightened ethnic sentiments, Nigeria is at a tipping point. It profits the government nothing but chaos to insist on deregulation at this critical time to impress World Bank and IMF and make life tougher for people.

NNPC should apply the "underrecovery" stuff while we buy time for for Dangote refinery and other refineries to roll out.

It's a cultural thing. When a prehistoric culture that has an imperial mindset invades a given society, hyjacks power and starts dominating the political culture of any given country for an upward of 6 decades, the tendency to entrench poverty and utilize squalid existence as tools for subjugation and total economic and political control increases.. When you are made poor, you have been made powerless..

Dear Nigerians, if the dullard increases fuel price and we don't hit the streets in protest, then we are enablers of Buhari's wickedness.




Dear Buhari and Osinbanjo you both are wicked and satanic people who don't care about Nigerians.

They met gas(petrol)at N87/ litre now its N212/ litre. APC is doing well. But be rest assured that by the time this thing hits harder, ENDSARS protest will be like child’s play.
