Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano state has asked petrol marketers to continue selling at old price to cushion the current hardship experienced by the general public.
Yusuf made the appeal in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa. He noted that marketers still have old products which are supposed to be sold at the previous pricing.
The Governor 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.
“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 urges 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.
