The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has advised President Bola Tinubu to immediately deploy measures to address the ensuing difficulties associated with the withdrawal of fuel subsidy.
In a congratulatory message written by the NBA President, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Yakubu Maikyau, to President Tinubu on Tuesday, June 13, the body said fuel subsidy removal was a right step in the right direction but the level of infrastructural deficits in many respects and the reliance on petroleum products as the primary source of power for most businesses, means there is a need for the government to cushion the impact of subsidy removal..
There is the urgent need to put in place policies that will help cushion the effect of this otherwise laudable decision before its positive impact will begin to be felt or noticed within our socio-economic space,” Maikyau stated.
The NBA said it will hold Tinubu accountable for his assurance that “the government I lead will repay you through massive investment in transportation infrastructure, education, regular power supply, healthcare and other public utilities that will improve the quality of lives,” the NBA advised that the pains and suffering of the people must never be taken for granted; as it must count for something.(www.naija247news.com)
