Lai Mohammed, the Nigeria’s Information Minister, on Saturday, stated that the recent hike in fuel and electricity prices, will be to the advantage of all Nigerians in the end.
The minister made this pronouncement in Lagos, while he met with online publishers.
He also pleaded to the Nigeria Labour Congress to cancel its planned industrial action, planned slated for Monday, the 27th September, 2020.
Mr Mohammed, reiterated that, the strike organised by Labour to protest against the hike, will only lead to more hardship for ordinary Nigerians.
He revealed that, the subsidy can no longer be taken care of, by the government. In his words, “Ordinary citizens are not the beneficiaries of the subsidy on petroleum products that has lasted for years,”
In addition, the minister said that, even though the increase is not really comfortable for most Nigerians, Nigerians must understand that, they still pay less for fuel, when compared to nearby countries.
On electricity, Mr Mohammed said that, the government can no longer afford to pay subsidy of the sector and gave an assurance that the increase will only lead to increased quality in power supply.
He again stated that, Nigerians still pay less for electricity, compared to citizens in countries nearby.
In conclusion, he said “We thank Nigerians for their understanding, and wish to appeal to them to please bear with the government,”.
