Fuel subsidy removal: I know Nigerians are suffering - Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has revealed that he is aware the removal of fuel subsidy has brought hardship upon Nigerians but says the decision was in the best interest of the country, especially in guaranteeing future prosperity.

 

According to Tinubu, who made this known when he received the 18 governors who served with him, Class of 1999, at the Presidential Villa, on July 12, the framework for palliatives to remedy the effects of fuel subsidy removal was being worked out.

President Tinubu said the government will increase effort, speed up the process and ensure a full-proof social security structure that will not be compromised, especially in cash-transfer.

“I understand that our people are suffering yet there can be no childbirth without pain. The joy of childbirth is the relief that comes after the pain. Nigeria is reborn already with fuel subsidy removal. It is a rebirth of the country for the largest number over a few smugglers. Please tell the people to be a little patient.

The palliative is coming. I don’t want cash-transfer to fall into wrong hands. I know it pinches and it is difficult. In the end, we will rejoice in the prosperity of our country,’’  President Tinubu informed the governors, who were led by former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion.
