    There was widespread anger by Nigerians following the latest adjustment in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, popularly called petrol by the NNPC and other oil marketers across the country.

    Also reacting, is popular Nigerian music artiste, Paul Okoye, who linked the current economic hardship to the trending Guinness World Record “Thon” on social media, which he described as ‘Shege-A-Thon’.

    Wakadaily reports that the Secretary, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Abuja-Suleja, Mohammed Shuaibu said the increased, “is because NNPCL is still the major importer of petrol into Nigeria currently, though other marketers are gradually importing the commodity. The price this (Tuesday) morning at some NNPCL stations is N617/litre.”

    Reacting to the current economic situation, the musician of the PSquare aka Rudeboy via his Instagram story wrote: “Fuel = 617 , Dollar = 820, Shege-A-Thon.”
