Arewa youths condemn increase in fuel pump price

The Arewa Youth Forum, AYF, has condemned in strong terms the increase in pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, popularly known as petrol.

In a statement issued by its National President, Ahmed Mohammed Zagi and made available to newsmen, the group said it received with shock the increase in price of petrol to over N600.

The youths noted that the N8,000 monthly stipend to some families in the country, although a welcome development, was far inadequate and should be reviewed upwards, looking at the skyrocketing cost of goods and services in the country.

It appealed to the federal government to inspire states to prioritise agricultural revolution that would ensure enough food protection in the country, believing that such efforts would lead to the crashing of prices of food products through the natural law of demand and supply.

The youths also appealed to President Tinubu and his advisers to think harder and come up with lasting solutions to the economic misfortunes of the country.
