Anambra people are currently not in a happy mood as fuel now sells for N500 per litre in the state. This is due to the closure of most filling stations in protest over what they described as high levies imposed on them by the state government. In order to protest the high levies, most filling Stations shut down leading into fuel scarcity in the state.
Black market sellers however resulted in selling theirs at N500 per litre for those who can afford it, a situation the indigenes have described unbearable.
It is said that the state government had imposed a ‘huge’ levy on owners of filling stations, which they must pay annually and that is what they are kicking against.
