The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has urged the Federal Government to rescind its decisions on recent increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and electricity tariff.
Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, in Lagos on Thursday, said the hike in petrol price and electricity tariff would multiply hardship of the masses.
According to him, many Nigerians are finding it difficult to survive the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The hardship that will result from the increase in pump price of petrol and electricity tariff will, for a long time, affect the people of this country.
“With this sudden increase, the prices of every commodity will definitely reach the rooftops and this will be more felt particularly, at a time like this when the world is still battling with the COVID-19 impasse.
