How Nigerians are reacting to this

@Tjslyy claimed,

"Compared to what is truly the transport services Nigerians use, this is grossly inadequate. The attempt to subsidize transport services will definitely be challenging... I just don't understand. Let us just bring some form of fuel subsidy back if we are so eager to subsidize!"

@EnejereMichael tweeted,

"I'm not a Tinubu supporter, but he did well if the Transport Companies will really perfect it. The main problem we are facing in Nigeria is not keeping to an agreement."

@sp_OJOAGBA noted,

This also does not legitimize neither justified the illegality of the mandate. How does this few selected areas enjoy your clueless ideas? Does change the price of goods in the market?
"What if tinubu just announce fuel price reduction to at least #400 ? That one would touch every one in this country not this mind control prank called transportation discount.”
