APC Chieftain Igbokwe Decries Fuel Subsidy

Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, has lamented over the biting effect of the fuel subsidy removal.

In a post via his Facebook page on Friday, Igbokwe said he was recently furious and angry after buying N20,000 worth of fuel, which he said didn’t fill half of his vehicle’s tank.

The aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said, “I bought N20,000 in fuel for my 4-wheel drive, and the gauge did not get to half tank.

“I thought the Petrol attendant cheated me. I was furious and angry. I went to another station, and it was the same. I have now disciplined myself. It is not anywhere that I go to now.”

Recall Bola Tinubu had announced the removal of fuel subsidies in May, leading to a hike in the price of commodities and transportation, with Nigerians counting their losses following the development.
