I’m Coming With Palliatives To Make Nigerians Smiles — Tinubu

 



Against the backdrop of the hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy, President Bola Tinubu has appealed to Nigerians to wait patiently and believe in his administration as he promised to come up with palliatives that will put smiles on the faces of everyone. 


President Tinubu admitted that he is aware that Nigerians are suffering from the removal of the fuel subsidy but assures that the savings will benefit all Nigerians. 


He also reaffirmed his commitment to returning Nigeria to the path of greatness and appealed to citizens to see the current harsh times as a form of labour before child birth.


The President, who made the promise in a meeting with the Class of 1999 Governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for the umpteenth time reiterated his commitment to Nigeria’s greatness and appeal for support. 


Recall that during his inaugural speech on May 29, the President announced that subsidy is gone and the pump price of petrol went up the next day from the initial N195 to over N500 per litre.


Consequently, the prices of goods and commodities skyrocketed to a very disturbing and unbearable level. 


Besides, in a meeting with oil and gas operators in February, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited, NNPCL, Mele Kyari, stated that the country was spending N400 billion monthly on fuel subsidies.


But speaking at the meeting with the Class of 1999 Governors, yesterday, the President said: “On the subsidy removal thank you for the support. And I understand people are suffering. Yet, there can be no childbirth without pain. 


“The joy of childbirth is the big relief of the pain. Nigeria is reborn. It is a rebirth of our country. To face our problem, to bring the savings to benefit the largest number of people in the country and not a few smugglers and exploiters. Thank you for your support.” 


 He re-echoed his commitment to Nigeria’s greatness and appeal for support.
