N1,200 Fuel Price Hike: NANS, FG At Loggerhead

By Mo Isa

The petroleum sector has proposed N1,200 as new petrol (fuel) pump rice but the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has opposed the proposal by the stakeholders.

According to a statement by the NANS South West zone, which was signed by the Coordinator, Comrade Alao John, such a price hike would increase the hardship presently faced by citizens.

Rather than fixing the petrol price at N1,200, the student body tasked the federal government to explore alternative solutions that address economic challenges without imposing undue burdens on the people. This, NANS, noted could include implementing measures to enhance efficiency in the petroleum sector, reduce corruption and promote fiscal responsibility.

Noting that Nigeria was grappling with economic challenges, NANS held that any move that might further burden its citizens would be met with resistance.

The association underscored the importance of preserving the economic well-being of the citizens, urging the government to consider the broader implications of its policies on the populace before embarking on them.

The body held that its opposition was not only about protecting the students but also about championing the rights and well-being of all Nigerians.
