The Students’ Union Government of Tai Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State has rejected the hike in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) from N148 to N151.56k per litre.

The PMS price regulatory agency had announced an increase to N151.56k per litre for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation retail outlets while the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria instructed its members in the South-West to dispense at N162.

Describing it as an act of war on Nigerian students, TASUED Students Union President, Abdul-Azeez Lekan Soneye said it was time for them to confront the government or be consumed.

He said, “War is coming. And it will consume everyone of us here if care is not taken. Electricity fee has been hiked by 300%. Petrol is now #160. I mean 160 in some places and not 150 as reported.

“It means landlords would increase house rent to meet up with electricity bills. We shouldn’t forget we were still envisaging problem that will arise as students won’t find it easy to pay for house they didn’t occupy for several months after a pandemic that has affected their sponsors’ income.

“With increase in fuel price, shuttle fare on campuses would increase. Price of food items has also increased. It means, cost of living would be so high that it won’t be reasonably affordable to students.

“There is a war far beyond clamour for resumption. And we either confront the government on the street now or face humiliations when school resumes. The war shall consume us all of we do not fight now.”

    It sounds barbaric that the clueless and inept man called Buhari removed petrol subsidy at this time… https://t.co/k7x6EAQ5dR
