The Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf has asked petroleum marketers to revert to the old petrol pump price to ameliorate the hardship experienced by Kano residents.
He described the recent hikes in the prices of premium motor spirit, also known as petrol, as unjustified.
This is contained in a statement by his press secretary, Bature Dawakin-Tofa, on Thursday.
He said, “To reduce the needless hardship on the state’s citizens, the marketers should exercise some restraint and quickly reopen all filling stations with available products in stock to sell at the former price.”
“As a concerned governor, I am disheartened to see our dear people of Kano suffering as a result of an unjustified fuel hike, and the situation must be stopped right away,” he added.NNPC
Mr. Yusuf also urged Kano residents to comport themselves and uphold the law.
