Following removal of fuel subsidy by the All Progressives Congress, APC government, Nigerians are reacting to the development which they vehemently rejected under the PDP government.
Mixed reaction trailed the increase in pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS otherwise known as petrol from N86.5 per litre to N145 per litre.
While some believed subsidy on petrol should be removed, so many others criticised the present government, asking if this is the change the APC party promised during it campaigns last year.
Here are the reactions:
How will CBN sustain $600m per month demand for purchase of PMS only? #FuelSubsidy
