“Stop shouting over fuel subsidy removal”– SFG Akume slams Nigerians

SGF George Akume told Nigerians to refrain from getting upset over the recent fuel subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

He emphasized the importance of staying calm amidst the economic challenges that have arisen as a result.

Speaking at the National Executive Council of CAN, Akume assured that President Tinubu is actively working to stabilize the economy.

According to Akume: “Nigerians must remain calm. President Bola Tinubu is working to improve the economy.

“One of them, which appears to be a little bit tough for people to understand, is the removal of subsidy on fuel. People should stop shouting; they need to know the actual truth.”

He said that the government had taken several measures to address current hardships, including swift actions in implementing palliatives to cushion the effects of the reforms.

“We are all aware of the N35,000 wage award for workers, which means a N30,000 minimum wage with 35,000 on top of that.

“Additionally, 100 billion naira for CNG fuel buses will help reduce transportation costs and food prices.

“These include the allocation of N125 billion in conditional grants and financial inclusion for medium and small enterprises, and 150 billion naira in palliative loans to states to mitigate the impact of fuel subsidy removal.

“We are providing 200 billion naira to support the cultivation of hectares of land, which is even more now.”
