Nigerians residing in the UK under the umbrella of the Association of Nigerian Professionals in United Kingdom have called on President Bola Tinubu to speedily implement measures to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal on Nigerians.

In a statement signed by the coordinator of the group, Comrade Innocent Udoidiong, the group stated that President Tinubu has started on a good note as he prepared himself for leadership.

While commending him for his courage in getting rid of the "obnoxious" fuel subsidy, they urged Tinubu to put in place measures to ameliorate the negative impact of the subsidy removal.

“Watching closely, you would realize that His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has started on a good note, indicating that he did not just dabble into it.


“He thoroughly prepared himself for the mantle. All we need at this moment is prayer and support to enable him to succeed.

“We laud President Tinubu for the courage to get rid of the obnoxious fuel subsidy policy which had remained a channel for the perpetration of fraud by some criminal elements.

“We also call for speedy implementation of measures aimed at reducing the hardship on Nigerians occasioned by the subsidy removal policy.

“If subsidy is removed to curb corruption, its removal should not rather lead to suffering by Nigerians. Something must be done and that should be as a matter of urgency”, the statement reads.
