Make Sure You Prioritise Palliatives For Fuel Hike – Chief Edwin Clark Tells President Tinubu

Elder statesman and South-South leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has urged President Bola Tinubu to prioritise the provision of palliatives to mitigate challenges that have arisen from fuel subsidy removal. Check out for more news. 

Clark made the call in an interview with NAN in Abuja on Thursday.

NAN reports that Tinubu had, during his inaugural speech on May 29, announced the removal of fuel subsidy which pushed the pump price of fuel from N194 to over N500 with variations in states.

Clark, who commended the president on the removal of subsidy, said the government had done the right thing.

“They have done the right thing. After all, all the candidates before the 2023 general election had advocated and promised to remove fuel subsidies.

“Everybody regarded it as a scam; it does not exist. Where are these faceless people we are paying the oil subsidy to, how has it benefited the ordinary man in Nigeria?

“Remember in January 2012, the Jonathan-led administration attempted to remove it, but the very people and leaders who opposed it at that time have now turned round to say yes it must go,”said Chief Edwin Clark.

He added that removing the fuel subsidy was a very bold step taken by President Tinubu.
