The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has stated that some petroleum marketers are taking advantage of President Bola Tinubu’s announcement on the removal of oil subsidies to hoard the commodity and inflict suffering on the citizens.
The governor said this in a video shared by his media aide Jubril Aremu Gawat on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.
He said, “I think it is too early in the day for people to second guess our new president. This is a pronouncement it is unfair for some of our major marketers to want to begin to seize opportunities.
“There is nothing that has changed in that pronouncement that could have caused the queues, but hey, I am sure the federal government that we have will be able to rise up and deal with it.
“I want to encourage everyone to be law-abiding, to go about their normal business “
