Hon. Buraimoh Peter Folajimi, a prominent member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called upon Nigerians to exhibit patience in the face of the ongoing economic difficulties confronting the nation. These challenges have been exacerbated by the decision of the APC government, led by President Bola Tinubu, to withdraw the fuel subsidy.

Addressing the media at a press conference held in Abuja yesterday, Buraimoh emphasized that maintaining the subsidy would merely defer the potential emergence of a more dire situation in the times ahead.

“During the period when the subsidy was in place, its benefits were not fully realized, and certain recommended measures have already been put into effect,” Buraimoh explained.

He went on to stress that the elimination of the fuel subsidy would inevitably bring about some temporary hardships. In fact, a number of essential policy changes are expected to come with their share of difficulties.

Buraimoh underlined his belief that advocating for the people’s welfare encompasses not only their immediate comfort but also their sustained prosperity.

“While the recent increase in fuel prices has undeniably posed challenges for the citizens of Nigeria, with perseverance, we can anticipate favorable transformations within the next half-year,” Buraimoh expressed optimistically.

“The reality is that the ill-fated fuel subsidy was benefiting the affluent, those with political connections, and even worse, our neighboring regions and illicit traders who were reaping lavish profits at the expense of the general populace,” he further stated.

Regarding the protests staged across the nation by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and various Civil Society organizations, Buraimoh remarked, “We ought to stand behind the government’s endeavors to effectively deliver the rewards of democracy.”

He went on to convey a message to the NLC and TUC, stating, “If there exists a need for a rallying cry, it should revolve around the prudent and transparent utilization of funds that would have otherwise been allocated to fuel subsidies.”

“We cannot simultaneously voice concerns about the deficiency in social infrastructure, amenities, and meager wages for public servants, while opposing measures aimed at enhancing the quality and accessibility of the same,” he concluded.
