Adekunle Gold drags FG over hike in electricity tariff, petrol price

Adekunle Gold has dragged the Nigerian Federal Government over hike in electricity tariff and fuel price.


Adekunle Gold described the recent hike in fuel price and electricity tariff as “madness”, adding that many Nigerians can hardly afford to feed themselves.


1ST NEWS recalls that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had earlier declared that protests and strike would begin nationwide on Monday over the federal government’s refusal to reverse petrol prices and electricity tariff.


While marketers currently sell petrol between N158 and N162 per litre, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had increased electricity tariff from N30.23 to N62.33 per kwh.


During a YouTube-inspired virtual hangout with journalists on Friday, Gold dismissed both increases as ill-timed.

Madness, that’s it. That’s all I have to say. I don’t know how you expect people to thrive in a pandemic where many lost their jobs,” he said.

“People can barely feed. People can’t even go out to do things that will fetch them money. And, on top of that, you’re increasing fuel price. It can only be madness.”

‘I don’t have a sound, it’s the vibe’— Adekunle Gold talks genre switch.


Adekunle Gold’s comment is also coming several months after his wife, Simi issued a public apology to the gay community across the globe. The songstress revealed that homosexuals do not deserve the harsh comments during her Stoopid Session.


After she had tendered an unreserved apology on Twitter, a lot of people called her out; claiming she only apologised because of her husband’s recent cover for an LGBT magazine, Quazar.
The mother of one stated that she is sincerely sorry for berating the wellness of individuals in the LGBT community.
