Nigerians are lamenting the high cost of living as the double-digit fuel price hikes have deeply affected their wallets, with many people expressing their frustrations on social media. The increases in petrol and diesel prices have forced Nigerians to dig deeper into their pockets to pay for basic needs like transportation, food, and other goods and services. Many Nigerians have said that the hikes are causing them crippling financial strain, with some reporting that they have to sacrifice basic necessities to make ends meet. Other Nigerians have pointed out that this is yet another burden imposed on the already suffering masses by the government, as the price hikes come at a time when most people are already struggling due to the pandemic and its resulting economic crisis. Many Nigerians are calling on the government to intervene and reverse the price hikes, or to provide direct interventions to citizens to cope with the increased costs.
