Nigerians should understand that with fuel subsidy removal, the government is no longer determining pump prices but the market forces. The product is bought in dollars. The dollar is around 890/$1 now. As the dollar climbs, fuel pump prices will continue to go up, he said, while reacting to speculation of further fuel pump hikes.

As a solution, he urged the government to double up efforts to make Compressed Natural Gas available for Nigerians.

Government should make conscious efforts towards making CNG available for Nigerians”, he added.
