Chidmma said she wished she could go back to the era when fuel was relatively cheap in Nigeria.

After buying the fuel, Chidimma shared her frustration on social media, even as fuel scarcity is reported in some Nigerian states.

She said there was no power supply in her area and she needed to use the fuel to power her generator.

She said:

I just bought fuel for ₦800. It didn’t matter that I wished heavily that they sell it ₦150. I just need to power the generator oo as they won’t give us light. Am I asking for too much?

There are media reports that fuel scarcity returned in some Nigerian states such as Sokoto, with black marketers selling a litre for N2,000 to N2,500.

Fuel pump price went high in Nigeria after fuel subsidy was removed in 2023.

Reactions as fuel scarcity bites some states

“You didn’t wish well. Close your eyes and wait for a shooting star next time.”

@TNU_K_ said:

“I wished for it to be ₦150, but it’s ₦800 still; then I ask God, “But I prayed to you to make it ₦150 now; why didn’t you do so?”

New price of fuel in Nigeria predicted

Meanwhile, the price of petrol has been predicted to be between N570-580 by the middle of 2024 based on two factors.

According to Barrister Titilope Anifowoshe, the continuous strength of the naira against the dollar could influence the reduction in the price of the commodity.

Anifowoshe added that the entry of the Dangote refinery would also have a significant effect on the price of fuel in Nigeria in the long run.
