Fuel Subsidy, Palliative: your Administration is ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ Govt – Sowore slams Tinubu

The 2023 African Action Congress, AAC, presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore has knocked President Bola Tinubu over the current hardship being experienced by Nigerians. He described Tinubu’s administration as a ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ government. Sowore made the remark while condemning the subsidy removal and the proposed palliative of the Federal Government. He wondered what the Federal Government has done with the money accrued since the removal of fuel subsidy, stressing that no road has been constructed. Addressing a round table discussion in Abuja, Sowore noted that Tinubu’s family would be among the richest in the world at the end of his four years. According to Sowore: “This Tinubu’s government is ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ government, his family will be the richest in the world by the time he does four years as president. This is not our government, and we have accepted to liberate this country.“There is nothing I have said since 2019 that has not come to pass, how can you help somebody to build a refinery and you can’t repair your own? The money Dangote used in building his refinery came from the NNPC that they claimed can’t manage refineries. I was the first person to say that Dangote can’t complete the refinery when Buhari went to commission it.“Palliatives is an insult on the people, the number of fuel trucks smuggled, the problem with this subsidy is that the people known by the government are the ones stealing the money. They are all lying that subsidy is not good for Nigerians, subsidy is the only thing that Nigerians enjoy, and they themselves are following it up.“Since they removed subsidy which road have they constructed? They have not even paid the salaries of NYSC members. Nothing has changed in Nigeria, and the only thing subsidy has brought is hardship and suffering.”
