The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Yobe Council in a press statement signed by its Chairman, Rajab Mohammed condemned the artificial situation that it said is capable of introducing untold hardships to the people of the state.

 

“The development has resulted in a sharp increase in the price of the commodity in service stations belonging to independent marketers Major marketers and other black market operations”.

 

“The Union is therefore calling on the state government, regulatory agencies and security agencies to intervene and restore normalcy in businesses, those hoarding the commodity should be identified and asked to sell it freely”.

 

“The NUJ is much concerned about the plights of the state citizens and could not fold its arms to see few people manipulating the sell of the product at illegal prices”.
