The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari to reverse the increase in the pump price of petrol immediately.
Daily Times had earlier reported the increment announced by Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Wednesday.
The new price has since stirred reactions from Nigerians and prominent individuals on social media.
SERAP, reacting on its official Twitter page, described the increment as a travesty, noting that the decision will affect millions of Nigerians struggling to make ends meet.
SERAP wrote: “We urge Nigerian authorities to immediately reverse the unfair hike in fuel price from ₦148 to ₦151.56 per litre.
Here are some reactions to the tweet:
