Nigeria international Ahmed Musa has lowered the price of fuel at his filing station MYCA7 in Kano from N620 to N580 per litre.
The Super Eagles skipper tweeted this on Monday as the hike in fuel prices bite deeper into incomes.
Musa wrote: “Fuel #580 @MYCA -7 Filling Station Kano,” sparking excitement among Nigerians.
One Twitter user, Scala @lakaas123, excitedly enquired “How manage Alhaji? N580 in Kano when not in Lagos? Are you whining us?” Musa replied, “That is what me I decide to sell my own.”
Musa, who has been facing backlash over his continuous inclusion in the Super Eagles, shared on Instagram Story messages of people showing gratitude for his humanitarian act in Kano.
In 2018, Musa purchased the filing station. He also owns a school and sports and fitness centre.
