Ibrahim Jibrin Mohammed, a Borno State-based philanthropist, on Wednesday, subsidized the price of petrol to N415 in Kano State.

Petrol, which currently sells at N615 at Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) filling stations, was on Tuesday sold at the new price at NNPCL station at Tal’udu in Kano metropolis.

According to the philanthropist, the gesture is in line with the directive of the First Lady of the country, Senator Remi Tinubu, to support Nigerians to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal.

Mohammed, who was represented by his coordinator, Abbakaka Hassan, also said the intervention was conceived to re-enforce what the Bola Tinubu government was doing to cushion the suffering of the masses.

He said, “We are doing this across all the six geopolitical zones of the country. We started in Maiduguri for the North East, did in Abuja for the North Central, and today we are in Kano for the North West.

“We will also do it in Lagos (South West), Port Harcourt (South South) and Enugu (South East).

“We will be selling the fuel to commuters throughout the day until we exhaust what we have. We are targeting as many people as possible.”

Daily Trust reports that during the palliative intervention, the petrol station witnessed an unprecedented number of motorists, tricycle operators and motorcycle users scrambling to gain access to the subsidised fuel.
