There will be consequences for increasing Fuel, Power Costs


Former Kano Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that Hunger, Insecurity and Unemployment will increase as a result of the increase in Fuel and Power costs.

Kwankwaso, in an interview with BBC Hausa on Friday added that there was no reason to justify the increments.

In his words; “Most countries of the world are providing palliatives to help ease the hardship of COVID-19 pandemic, unfortunately Nigeria is increasing petrol and electricity prices. You hardly get anyone in support of this policy,” he added.

The Former senator also said that there is nothing wrong in government reversing an unpopular decision in the best interest of the people.

“Running government involves generating revenues and expenditure, so the best thing the government could do is to stop the leaks in the system and not tax citizens. People would be more happy, had the government did this,” he said.
