Subsidy Removal: Tinubu Has Shown Leadership-Wike



Former governor of  Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has endorsed the removal of fuel subsidy by the President Bola Tinubu led administration.

According to Wike, the decision of President Tinubu to remove petroleum subsidy, proves that “Nigerians didn’t make mistakes” electing him.

Recall that during his inaugural speech on May 29, Tinubu declared that “petrol subsidy is gone”, a pronouncement that led to increase of fuel price and long queues at petrol stations.

The decision caused the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to threaten to embark on a nationwide strike.

Speaking on the issue, Wike said Tinubu showed “leadership” with the declaration, describing the decision as “A-rated”.

“The first steps you take show if you are a good dancer or not. He has shown leadership. The first day he took the oath. We must tell ourselves the simple truth,’” he said on Tuesday, June 6.

Furthermore, Wike said; “How many presidents can make that kind of decision? For me, that is leadership, and it shows that he is prepared for the job. It is a hard decision, but you have to take it.

“For me, I felt so happy that we didn’t make mistakes and that this is the kind of leadership we want in this country.

“That is why some of us have said Nigerians should give him a chance. For me, the decision is A-rated,” Wike concluded .
