President Bola Tinubu has said he is aware of the challenges Nigerians are going through after the removal of the fuel subsidy, assuring his administration’s commitment to working around the clock to provide succor.

Tinubu gave the assurance in his first address to the nation on Monday, to commemorate this year’s Democracy Day in honour of the late Chief MKO Abiola, the winner of the presidential election held in June 12, 1993.

“I feel and share your pain. This is one decision we must bear to save our country from going under and take our resources away from the stranglehold of a few unpatriotic elements,” Tinubu has said.

He called on Nigerians to sacrifice a little more like late Abiola, whom he said, “We can easily recall the sacrifice and martyrdom of Chief MKO Abiola, the custodian of the sacred mandate that was so cruelly annulled.

It could be recalled that President Tinubu in his inaugural speech on May 29, stated that subsidy can no longer justify its ever-increasing costs in the wake of drying resources, hence, announced its removal.
