Like my tired is really tired o.

I'm a spray painter and we need petrol to execute tasks; ( mixing gloss paint, running the spray engine and what not).

This sudden petrol price hike had taken a huge toll on me personally. Welders are on the bright side cos diesel price keeps crashing for a while now and most of them use diesel engines.

Before now, N2,000 petrol will handle the painting of 15-20 doors. But now my brothers ,N5,000 worth of fuel can't deliver 20 of the same doors.

If not for the odd jobs and some improvisation, I wonder what would have become of me lately.

Like we're just programmed to suffer in this country.

You've got a mail. cool

The Situation is almost impossible

A salary earner who earns 100k, lives at Magodo or Isheri and works oin Victoria Island spends over 80K a month on transport. How can he continue the job?... how does he feed, pay rent, feed the family, pay electricity and other bills, buy airtime and data, cloth himself and family, deal with general life expenses?

How does a barber who spend 1.5 liters of petrol to barb one person break even, How do you expect a Nigerian in remote Osun to pay 3K to barb hair.... how does the barber survive with increased electricity tariff and increased fuel price?

How does the hair stylist and tailors who depend on fuel to carry out their business break even?, if they inflate their prices ... how many Nigerians can afford it? cry cry


1.5 litres for a customer haircut? That customer head na Apoti Fedeco?

I will be surprised if Nigeria economy grow as they projected, because in all advanced economy, govt usually give incentive/subsidy to stimulate economy .

Here in our naija, govt draining citizens right and no stimulus package put life into business.


I forsée 50% small business collapsing before December.

The right question should be

How are Tinubu supporters or OBI supporters cope with Fuel grin

Now ask how

How politicians and Common man cope with Fuel.

The question is, how long is this stability in electricity going to last? We have been enjoying at least 23hours of light for a few weeks now. But my worry is, no one really knows why the sudden improvement. Is it that the dams are filled as a result of rainfall and consequently, we are now enjoying light? Or is there another reason? No one can say for sure.

Install solar System to power some of your appliances that need constant light . This way you will not always keep the gen running.

If Tinubu was not allowed to impose himself on Nigerians, his supporters would have been disturbing us with how Tinubu would have changed Nigeria within 48hrs of swearing in.

Buhari was given a chance, he failed
Tinubu was equally given a chance now, he is showing early signs of abysmal poor performance

And this is not the best time to increase service price in response to the increase in the price of petrol because sales and patronage has dropped.
Increasing price will make you further lose patronages you use to enjoy before.

I already heard they've been taxing businesses that power their business with generator.

There's no electricity and sanitation is taxing people for using generators.
Too much problems in this country.

Didn't you see that the Demand Notice you're parading is for July 2022?

Enjoy it while it lasts. If PHCN goes back to status quo, petrol price may come down by then. Just be positive always.

Don't just type two lines, explain how it gives more run time, how much gas do you buy and how many hours does it last?
