Ahmed Musa, captain of the Super Eagles, has cut the price of gas at his Kano fuel station MYCA7 to help alleviate the hardship caused by the increase in the price of the Petroleum Motorist Spirit (PMS).

On Monday, the former Leicester City forward announced a price reduction from N620 to N580 per litre on his Twitter account.

Two months after President Bola Tinubu announced the end of fuel subsidies, the price of PMS at the pump climbed twice, with the product selling for as much as N620 per litre or more in various regions of the country.

The increase resulted in an increase in the cost of living and transportation across the country.

Musa, who plays for Sivasspor, told The Punch that his choice was made to alleviate the burden on ordinary people.

“It’s the best I can do for my people here,” he remarked, highlighting the severe economic circumstances that many are experiencing.

“No matter how small the reduction, we can live with it.” It’s difficult now, and I know people are suffering to exist on a daily basis,” he remarked.

Musa also intends to open other gas stations across the country before retiring from football.

“Hopefully, MYCA7 will be available in other parts of the country pretty soon,” he added.

The 30-year-old is Nigeria’s most capped player, having appeared in 108 matches since making his debut at the age of 17 in 2010.

He has 16 goals for his country, helping them win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and competing in two World Cups.
