Some motorists who stopped to purchase fuel at the NNPC Mega Station in Hotoro, Tarauni local government area of Kano state, have been forced to change their minds, deserting the place.

The motorists had to leave when they were informed of the price adjustment.

A staff of the said station who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “The increment took effect this morning and as you can see, customers have been leaving.”

Nura Isiya, a tricycle operator who spoke with the media outfit noted: “This is ridiculous, where are we heading for in this country? Honestly, I can’t buy at this price.”

A car owner, Shamsuddeen Muhammad, who drove out of the station without refuelling, said he preferred to buy from independent marketers who are yet to adjust their prices.

Muhammadu complained: “Haba Mallam, what is this? I have called someone and I can get it at cheaper price at least the N540 to N550 per litre in other stations.

“Let me rush there before they get wind of the situation and increase the price also. We are doomed in this country,” he told DailyTrust.
