FG’s palliatives inadequate, unsustainable, says Niger governor
Governor Mohammed Bago of Niger State has cautioned that the palliative measures taken by the Federal Government are insufficient to alleviate the challenges Nigerians face due to the elimination of fuel subsidies.
He suggested that both the government and citizens explore alternative approaches to address the existing economic difficulties in the country, emphasizing that the current subsidy relief is not a viable long-term solution.
The governor issued this advisory during the inauguration of the distribution of agricultural resources to wet-season farmers across the state’s 25 local government areas.
I want to use this medium to thank President Bola Tinubu, the Commander in chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, for coming to the aid of vulnerable Nigerians.
But we must be honest with ourselves; the palliative scheme cannot be sustained, we have to go back to the farm to reinflate our economy.
