Stop Fuel Subsidy Immediately, Empower Female Population — United States Tells Nigeria

The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Staurt Symington has urged the Federal Government to remove Fuel Subsidy immediately and use the proceeds to empower and educate its female population, and provide power for every home.

The diplomat who was speaking during an event to commemorate America’s 243rd independence, added that subsidy costs Nigerians “more than they worth”.

The advice is coming a week after Muhammad Sanusi, emir of Kano, said heavy subsidy is leading Nigeria into bankruptcy.

Wale Tinubu, managing director of Oando Plc, had also called on the government to cease subsidy.

His Words….

“You don’t need anybody to tell you what to do. It is very simple. Number one, don’t look to government and get rid of gasoline subsidies. They cost every Nigerian citizen more than they worth.

“Number two, educate and empower every girl and every woman so that Nigeria sees her future with two eyes and can grab it with two arms and not one.

“Number three, give power to the people. Put an electricity meter in every home and pay for what you get and tell the companies that you’re paying for what they deliver. But Nigeria knows all that and one other thing, that tonight and every other night, that every Nigerian is both a citizen and a subject. In Nigeria, there is one government but there are hundreds of servants.

“A great asset of Nigeria is for all those who lead and all the subjects they represent, to come together to make this nation one nation bound in freedom with peace and unity and in this process, you can count on the US for we believe in your ideas and we profoundly believe in you.”

“Nigeria is not just a country, Nigeria is not just a nation, Nigeria was not just drawn on a map to bound first as a colony and later as free women and men. This country, Nigeria, is an idea, an idea very familiar to every American.”
