Media personality Toke Makinwa has lamented the hike in the price of diesel.

The reality show host took to Twitter on Wednesday to lament the state of Nigeria following the hike.

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

This came after singer Paul Okoye also known as Rude Boy took to his Instagram story to cry out over the cost of diesel.

“Ordinary house I’m spending 1.4m naira for diesel (Generator and Diesel) the new luxury,” he wrote.

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.”

Still ranting about the state of the nation, the actress noted that Nigerians are in ‘double trouble’ because when one goes out there is no petrol and when a person decides to stay at home, there is no electricity power supply.
