Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has revealed what led to the hike in electricity and fuel price.

Recall that power distribution companies implemented new electricity tariffs on September 1, while the federal government announced a new ex-depot price of petrol 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.

 

According to him, the President went ahead with the decision after he observed that the Big Brother Naija show had completely distracted Nigerian Youths.

“l was stunned to see youths organise a fundraiser for a disqualified BBNaija housemate.

“I was told that General MBuhari was afraid to raise the prices of fuel and electricity.

“What emboldened him was when he saw how BBN has completely distracted Nigeria’s youth,” he said.

The National Examination Council (NECO) has announced the reschedule of Paper I Computer Studies Practicals which was to take place on Monday 19 October 2020 to November 16 2020.

This was made known in a statement by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division, NECO, Azeez Sani.

Sani said the paper was rescheduled because of the End SARS protests that blocked the free movement of transport at the entrance gate into Benin City, the Edo state capital.

He further stated that the NECO delivery truck left its take-off point two days earlier to deliver examination materials to some states but has been held up in the ‘blockage.

“This is to inform the general public and especially candidates that the National Examinations Council (NECO) has been constrained to reschedule the Paper I Computer Studies Practical’s earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19 October 2020, 10 am to 1 pm.

​”This unforeseen incident has been caused by the End SARS protest that blocked the free movement of transport at the City entrance gate Benin.

“The Council wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that the affected examination materials have been retrieved intact and are in the custody of NECO’s vault.

​”While regretting any inconveniences this rescheduling may cause our esteemed stakeholders, the Council has however taken this decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examinations procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination.”
