Fuel hike: Everybody is waiting for somebody to protest and there is nobody - Shehu Sani

Following ongoing reactions trailing the hike in the price of fuel across the country, a former lawmaker Shehu Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the eighth Senate has revealed why Nigerians did not hit the street in protest against the development.
In what came in as a surprise to Nigerians, Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) announced that the price of premium motor spirit popularly known as petrol has been increased to N151.56 per litre.
The development came barely five months after the pump price of premium motor spirit was reduced to N123 per litre by the federal government, with the disclosure made in a memo released by PPMC.
In response, Shehu Sani described Nigerians' less-aggressive response to increase in fuel price as indifference.
According to him, Nigerians did not protest the fuel price as they did in 2012 because they were waiting for people to protest for them.
"Everybody is waiting for somebody to protest and there is nobody," the former lawmaker said in a tweet.
