House of Representatives Leader, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila has expressed support for the removal of fuel subsidy. He argued that the government is left with no option but to take the decision in order to save the country’s economy from a total collapse.
The lawmaker was one of the key participants at the stakeholders’ meeting where the decision to hike the price of fuel to N145 was taken.
He disclosed that the 36 states government of the federation would have faced the risk of zero allocation from the federation account if the government had continued to sustain the subsidy regime.
In an article made available to The GUARDIAN, Gbajabiamila canvassed a review of the minimum wage as a means of assuaging the pains faced by Nigerians as a result of the hike in the price of fuel.
Gbajabiamila who was at the forefront of the opposition to the removal of fuel subsidy enjoined Nigerians to understand with the president Muhammadu Buhari led administration who had been grappling with a reversal in the fortune of the country’s economy since he assumed the helm of affairs last year.
