Former President Muhammadu Buhari gave the reason for his joy when President Bola Ahmed Tinubu increased the petrol price.

Buhari failed in his several attempts to remove the fuel subsidy.

However, the former military and civilian president gave his reason at the annual dialogue of Katsina Consultative Forum (KCF) held last weekend.

Buhari, in his speech, said he thought the removal of fuel subsidy would reduce the number of visitors to his house in Daura.

He said he was wrong as many Nigerians raise funds to get fuel to pay homage to him.

He said: “I’ve seen the good and bad side of Nigeria; I thanked God I have now settled at home, and people are coming to pay homage daily.

“I was happy when Tinubu increased the petrol pump price, thinking that would reduce the number of people visiting me at home, but they later resorted to organising themselves to raise funds to barge into my house.”
