Months into piloting the affairs of Nigeria, President Bola Tinubu’s administration that promised a Renewed Hope is already gradually becoming ‘Renewed Shege’.
This new phrase is part of the several reactions have trailed the increase in the pump prices of Petrol, known as Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), from ₦537 to ₦617 per Litre.
This is coming after the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) increased the price of Petrol across the country.
NNPC fuel stations in Abuja witnessed brief queues, particularly the one located along Murtala Mohammed Express road in Kado remained shut for a few hours.
This was as the Petrol attendants adjusted their fuel pumps to reflect the new price of ₦617.
Also, NNPCL fuel stations in Ushafa and one of its mega stations at Durumi, in the Federal Capital Territory, increased their pump prices.

Following the development, some Nigerians took to social media to berate the Federal Government for increasing the pump price of petrol at this time.
Also, others mocked supporters of President Tinubu the ruling party.
