He said Nigerians were already suffering before the increases, and now Nigerians are dying.

Murray-Bruce wrote: “It was wrong for government to increase cost of petrol, electric and other utilities without also increasing minimum wage.

“People were already suffering before the increases, now they‘re dying.

“Elected officials who earn jumbo pay should remember that the masses have to live too.”
