The scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) has led to long queues at petrol stations and inflated prices on the black market, affecting citizens from all walks of life, including high-profile individuals like Melaye.

The video has sparked a wave of reactions online, with many expressing their surprise at seeing the former senator, known for his flamboyant lifestyle, resorting to black market fuel.
