I’m spending N1.4m on diesel, Rudeboy cries out

Paul Okoye P-Square

Singer Paul Okoye popularly known as Rudeboy revealed he spent N1.4 million on diesel following the hike in the price of petroleum products.

The 40-year-old cried out in an Instagram story on Wednesday, describing diesel as the “new luxury.”

The P-Square member wrote, “Ordinary house I’m spending 1.4m Naira for diesel (Generator and disel) The new luxury.”

Media personality Toke Makinwa also took to Twitter to lament diesel prices.

“800 naira per litre of diesel, my gen has been on since yesterday morning, Nigeria…….which way to go o?” she tweeted.

Recall that actress Kate Henshaw had earlier in March raised alarm over the high cost of fuel.

She said, “I think at this stage we should all just take charge of what we want this country to be. For almost a month there has been no petrol. We were told that it was bad fuel that was brought in, and then we were told that they will bring good fuel. Now, it is the Russian-Ukraine war.

“It is so shameful and with all due respect; we have Mr President who doubles as the petroleum minister has jetted out to look after himself, nobody cares and we are just quiet. We are going to petrol stations fighting ourselves for a product that is not even there and we do not even know when it is going to come. Nigerians, it is time we take our destiny in our hands.”
