Fuel subsidy drop worries Nigerians

Some worry that the cost of living will skyrocket after the government stops subsidising fuel costs.

    Nigerians have enjoyed cheap fuel for decades because of government controlled prices, but are now facing a big price increase, as the government plans to end the fuel subsidy.

    Many Nigerians fear the move will send the cost of living skyrocketing.
