The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has blamed the lingering fuel scarcity and hike in the fuel price in the country on the handiwork of some saboteurs.
Tinubu spoke on Wednesday, during the presidential campaign held at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Many Nigerians have been groaning over the scarcity of fuel and the hike in the pump price ranging from N270 to N400 per litre in recent weeks.
The flag bearer who spoke in Yoruba language while addressing the crowd said there was a deliberate move by some people he described as saboteurs to derail the coming elections.
Punch newspaper reports that Tinubu who did not reveal the identity of the people behind the scarcity also accused the same people of hoarding the currency to stop the coming elections.
He however urged the people to endure the pains and ensure they cast their votes for him, regardless of fuel scarcity and hike in the pump price.
