Activist protests in front of Imo govt house over fuel price increase, scarcity

by OkeomaNews

A human Rights activist, Nnamdi Iwuala, has staged a protest in front of Imo government House in Owerri over hike in price of fuel in the state.

Iwuala, the founder of Genius Eyes International foundation for the hopeless while speaking to journalists said that the hike and scarcity of fuel in the state were affecting the economy of the state.

He said that it was unfortunate that a litre of fuel sells for N450 in the state.

He called on the government to order price regulation agencies in the state to compel fuel station owners to start selling at the government approved pump price.

Clutching placards, the activist said that the people were suffering in “the midst of plenty.”

Iwuala said ” I am here protesting alone to show how angry that I am. I am angry because a litre of fuel sells for N450 in Imo state while it sells cheaper in other states. The government is saying nothing and the regulation agencies are doing nothing.

” The people are suffering. The economy is shrinking. Prices of goods and services are high. The people of the state are crying and the government is not perturbed about it. I am calling on the government to do the needful by ensuring that fuel station owners in the state start selling at the approved pump price.”
