Subsidy Removal: Tinubu Recognises Negative Effects On Citizens — Oshiomhole

Subsidy Removal: Tinubu Recognises Negative Effects On Citiz

Former Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole has stated that President Bola Tinubu recognises the negative impact of the fuel subsidy removal on Nigerians.

During an appearance on Channels TV's Sunday Politics on Sunday, Oshiomhole disclosed that the presidency has a solution for the ongoing crisis.

He expressed confidence that the issue will between the federal government and organised labour will be resolved swiftly.

“This president recognises that the effect of the withdrawal is already here, people are already going through some level of discomfort and therefore there has to be an immediate solution to it.

“Now that immediate solution is what we discussed and the fact that we are meeting on Tuesday again shows that clearly, we realize that this is not one of those things you want to buy time because it has a real negative impact, on particularly, the most vulnerable group.

“But we have a solution to it because you are going to make savings, so take from that savings or even if it is borrowing. 

“So, whatever it is, you can leverage some revenue and improve wages to cushion the cost of living, I think it is legitimate, I think it is doable, it is not something that you want to spend two to three months negotiating,” he stated.
