Former presidential media aide and social media commentator, Reno Omokri, has revealed what led to the hike in electricity and fuel price.

Power distribution companies implemented new electricity tariffs on September 1, while a new ex-depot price of petrol was also announced on September 2.

However, Omokri in a tweet via his Twitter account on Sunday, claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari was initially afraid to raise the prices of fuel and electricity.
