Subsidy Removal Forces Taraba Civil Servants to Sell Off Cars.



Car sellers in Jalingo, Taraba state capital, are running out of parking space as civil servants who cannot afford to maintain their vehicles since the removal of fuel subsidy is selling their cars.

Civil servants in the state have been compelled to sell out their vehicles since the removal of the fuel subsidy, which forced the price of the commodity to skyrocket over 100 per cent.

The Pump fuel price in the state sells within the range of N550,00 to N570,00, while the state is among numerous states yet to implement the national N30,000 minimum wage.

Most of the Car stands visited by our correspondents within Jalingo proved that 42 per cent of vehicles brought in for sale in the last three weeks belong to civil servants working with the state or local government council. “They are bringing cars massively”, one of the car sellers revealed.

An agent with Muri Company, located at Muri Hotel within Jalingo told our correspondent that they lack parking space as more customers were approaching them to pick their vehicles to sell on their stands.

They confirmed that most people selling their cars are civil servants, particularly from the state.

“Those approaching us to sell their cars are mainly civil servants, they claim life is unbearable to them, and the cost of fueling and maintaining the vehicles is no longer possible.

“From our stand, we are not seeing buyers like before the removal of fuel subsidy, people are not ready to buy more vehicles, the fuel cost has cushioned extravagant use of cars, and the market is not moving like before.

Titus Illiman, a civil servant with the Taraba state ministry of Information who also gave out his car for sale, said he could no longer drive the vehicle since the price of fuel skyrocketed to N550,00.

“I can not park my car and watch it damage without income. Is it better if I sell it and use the money to farm so that I can make a profit to train my children in school? My monthly take home as a civil servant cannot fuel the car.”
