Aisha Yesufu, a popular Nigerian socio-political activist, has thrown shade at those who were laughing at supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate in the February 25 general election, Peter Obi while they were campaigning for him.

The activist emphasized that those who were laughing at Obidients for doing the one million march are now also doing the same because of fuel scarcity, a resultant effect of the hike in the price of the commodity.

HotNewsInNaija recalls that earlier on Tuesday, the pump price of fuel increased from N539 to N617 per litre.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) attributed the hike in price to ‘market forces’.

The NNPCL Group Chief Executive Officer, Mele Kyari, disclosed this while speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting with Vice President Kashim Shettima at the State House in Abuja.

Kyari said with the deregulation of the oil sector, market realities will force the price of petrol up sometimes and at other times force it down.

“We have the marketing wing of our company. They adjust prices depending on the market realities.

“This is really what is happening; this is the meaning of making sure that the market regulates itself so that prices will go up and sometimes they will come down also. This is what we have seen, and in reality, this is what (how) the market works,” he said.

Due to the price increment, Nigerians who are unable to afford transportation now trek to save costs.

Weighing in on the situation via her verified Twitter handle, Yesufu wrote, “Those who were laughing at those doing one million march for Peter Obi, are now doing their own one million march because of fuel scarcity.

“If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for nothing!”
