Oyo NUJ Condemns Petrol Scarcity, Laments Economic Hardship on Citizens

The Oyo State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has condemned in strongest terms, the lingering petrol scarcity in Ibadan and other parts of the state, which has caused untold hardships for citizens.

In a statement signed by the NUJ State Secretary, Sola Oladapo, and made available to reporters in Ibadan on Monday, the Chairman, Ademola Babalola, lamented that the scarcity and price increase from N750 to N800 per liter have exacerbated the economic crisis and unfavorable inflation rates in the state.

Babalola expressed concern over the suffering of ordinary citizens, who are bearing the brunt of the scarcity, and called on the relevant authorities to take urgent action to address the situation.

The NUJ chairman also urged the government to find a lasting solution to the recurring petrol scarcity and price hike, which he described as a major setback to the economic development of the state and the country at large.

The union’s condemnation comes as many residents of Ibadan and other parts of Oyo State continue to struggle to access petrol, with many filling stations either closed or selling the product at exorbitant prices.”
