"Which way is Nigeria headed? I bought 50 litres of diesel for my car at the cost of N40,000 in Enugu. I’m wondering how we will all survive this hardship. As a Law Professor that has reached the last step and stage in promotion at a Federal University, I’m paid about 400k per month."
But replying to Professor Ezeilo's tweet, the Twitter user insinuated that fuel could be cheaper in Nigeria.
The user identified as @changeluka replied:

Nigerians share mixed feelings
"Your analysis does not apply to this. Your earning power in the US outweighs the one in Nigeria. 400k in Nigeria is about $661 per month. Can you cope with $661 per month in the US? Think before you comment on things."
