Nigerians Are Going Through Pain But We Had To Remove Fuel Subsidy – Tinubu

The Nigeria President, Bola A. Tinubu on Friday told South-West muslim leaders that Nigerians are going through pain caused by the fuel subsidy removal, but the government did not have an option but to do away with the fuel subsidy.

His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, captured the high points of the discussions in a statement he signed late Friday, titled,

“President Tinubu to S/West Islamic leaders: Sacrifice is required to achieve Nigeria’s restoration.”

Addressing the delegation led by the president of the Ummah, Rasaki Oladejo, at the State House, Abuja, and the president said the current challenges facing the nation are only temporary, assuring Nigerians that better days are coming.

“We have to believe in one country; we have to believe in Nigeria. We will do our best, and our economy will get better for the benefit of Nigerians. I am very sure of that, and we are putting in the work to ensure that,” Bola Tinubu said.

Tinubu noted that the policies and programmes of his administration were aimed at achieving a fairer, better and honest society where hard work is rewarded and where laziness reaps little.

He reasoned, “It is about our future. We must guarantee our future. Almighty Allah will not give us a burden that we cannot bear.

“He has put us here for a purpose. It may look difficult; even rough, but it will get better. We avoided it (removing the petroleum subsidy) for 40 years.

“We are all going through the pain now, but for Nigeria not to collapse, we had to remove the subsidy.”

Oladejo, in the company of the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola, commended Tinubu for his courage in removing the petroleum subsidy and for initiating necessary, even if difficult reforms.

“There had been no leader, military, or civilian that could break this hard nut of removing petroleum subsidy for us to grow as a country. You have done it. God will see you through,” Oladejo said.
