Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose on Wednesday said President Bola Tinubu took the best and wisest decision by removing fuel subsidy.

Fayose, on his Twitter handle said the removal of fuel subsidy was for the collective good of Nigeria and its people.

“On this removal of fuel subsidy, I am convinced that President Tinubu has taken the best and the wisest decision for the collective good of Nigeria and its people. He promised to remove subsidy, he never hide it.

“Most importantly too, the immediate past govt already removed fuel subsidy technically by not making provision for it in the 2023 budget,” he said.

Fayose appealed to Nigerians to bear with the government for now as the present hardship would ease out with time.

“Removing the fuel subsidy is the best thing to do and it has to be done once and for all.

“Unfortunately too, the subsidy regime had only been benefiting a few people in the oil industry and Nigeria must break this chains once and for all.

“No doubt, President Tinubu is not a magician who can manufacture money. He can only strategically reposition the country, using his experience and intellect, which he has started,” he added.

According to Fayose, many governments had come and paid lip service to all these issues, saying it was time to sustain the country by taking decisions that might be seen as harsh, but could return the country back to the path of progress.

“The NLC and all interested parties, especially ordinary Nigerians should realize that the last administration did more damage and the new government can only be finding ways and means to stabilize the country.

‘Sadly, like typical Nigerians who are always desirous of taking advantage of every situation, the fuel marketers are only interested in making money for themselves and methinks the govt should come very hard on them this time. Anyone among them found to be hoarding fuel or selling at exorbitant rate should be dealt with,” he stated.
