Kano State Governor, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusif has urged petroleum marketers to reinstate the previous prices for petroleum goods in order to lessen the current hardship experienced by the public.
The spokesperson to the governor, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa in a statement on Thursday quoted the governor saying ‘he is aware that the marketers still had old products in stock that were supposed to be sold at the previous pricing.’
According to the governor, 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,” adding that Kano is the commercial hub for the country’s northern region as well as certain countries in West Africa, and its bustling populace continues to enjoy favorable business conditions.
The Governor urged the good citizens of Kano state to maintain their composure and uphold the law because the government is always prepared to make sure that people are doing their affairs conveniently.
