FUEL SUBSIDY: Don't go on strike, Tinubu means well – Sanwo-Olu tells NLC, Nigerians

Eric Patrick

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Sunday, appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) not to embark on its proposed nationwide strike on fuel subsidy removal slated for Wednesday, saying President Bola Tinubu means well for the country’s economy.

The Governor, who implored labour leaders to exercise patience on its proposed planned strike, urged the Labour leaders not to be political over the issue of the removal of fuel subsidy.

He said the subsidy removal is in the interest of all Nigerians, urging them to support President Bola Tinubu to run the affairs of the country creditably.

Governor Sanwo-Olu spoke on Sunday while speaking to journalists after the Post-inauguration Church Thanksgiving Service held at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina in Lagos.

The Governor urged the labour leaders to join hands with the present administration at the federal level and be patient with the President in his commitment to turn the economy around and make Nigeria a better place for all.

He said: "We are thankful that Mr President is a product of Lagos.

We will pray for him and everything that he stands for.

We believe he will replicate all the good things he has done in Lagos in our country, Nigeria.


"I want to wish and plead with our citizens even as NLC has said to us that they want to go on strike.

It is not the time for a strike. During the campaign trail, every one of our presidential candidates did say that the first thing they are going to do is to remove the subsidy.

So, what has changed? What has the current president said or what has he done that is different from what any of the other aspirants said they would do?

"We need to be very patient.

He (President Tinubu) has not even done a week. So let us talk to ourselves and say that we shouldn't turn it political. Let us wait and support this man. He had not done a week on the job, Sanwo-Olu added.
