Nigerians on Friday described the fresh increase in the pump price of petrol as “next level hardship”.


They took to the social media to criticise the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and his All Progressives Congress party for bringing untold suffering on the masses through unpopular policies including steady fuel hike

Petroleum Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, increased the ex-depot price of petrol from N147.67 per litre to N155.17.

Following the announcement, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria said the implication was that the pump price of petrol would range from N168 to N170 per litre.

Commenting on various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, Nigerians expressed total disappointment in the Buhari regime whose second-term campaign slogan was “Next Level”.


According to them, the steady increase in fuel prices since the beginning of 2020 is “next level hardship”, lamenting that it is causing unimaginable inflation and an increase in food prices.

“Welcome to next level hardship delivered as promised in his 2019 campaign,” Etietop Edem wrote on Facebook.


“Before Buhari leaves office in 2023, we will buy fuel for N200 per litre in this country. Come 2023, everybody should go get their voter cards ready to dislodge the APC,” Anointing Atakijenyo stated.


Princewill Chioma also commented, “More hardship for the masses. How do we survive this government?”


Activist Deji Adeyanju tweeted, “This is the Next Level. Actions have consequences.”
