BUHARI and YAR’ADUA did not increase prices. In fact, YARADUA reduced the pump price from N75 to N65. Buhari is back again to reduce the price even after removing the FUEL subsidy that has proven to be a monumental fraud in NNPC over the years, the first of its kind in the history of Nigeria. May God give him more wisdom and long life to take Nigeria back to the top again!
