Meanwhile, former Chairman of the All-Progressives Congress, APC, Caucus in Kaduna State and frontline Politician, Dr. Ahmed Tijjani Ramalan, has advised President Bola Tinubu to stop the stealing of Nigerian oil, cut the cost of governance, earnings of elected and political appointees, looting of security votes, corruption in the civil service among other government excesses.
Ramalan, who spoke in Abuja, the Federal capital, explained that Nigeria’s economic problem was beyond distributing palliatives to the people, especially to mitigate the effect of the fuel subsidy removal.
He argued that the earlier proposed palliatives to cushion the effect of the subsidy removal could not solve the problems of many Nigerians suffering with the astronomical rise in the prices of commodities and cost of living.
The Elder Statesman, however, expressed his belief that Nigeria would not surmount the problems even if Tinubu distributes N100, 000 to every family.
He reiterated that the proceeds generated from the reduced cost of governance should be channeled to infrastructure and the country’s food security, human security, mass transport, education and health system.
