Buhari government still subsidising petrol - Says Minister as Nigerians react

The Muhammadu Buhari's administration said revealed that the Nigerian government is yet to completely stop subsidising petroleum products in the country.



This was disclosed by Timipre Sylva during his appearance as a guest on Channels Television on Monday, November 23.


He said:


“We are still trying to manage this bumpy start. We have not really been able to get to that 100 percent removal of subsidy from the foreign exchange end.



“If we were to actually take it out completely and allow people to access foreign exchange from the parallel market and allow people to import the product, the price of the pump will even be more."


Nigerians have however taken to the social media to react to the latest development.


Samson Oláníyì wrote on Facebook:


"Really? Is this a slip of tongue or what? So you are still subsidizing at N170 per litre? The last government under GEJ proposed to remove subsidy, to sell at N140/ltr. The proposal was greeted with vehement protest. APC made us believe that subsidy was a scam during the electioneering campaign. If that was a scam, what do we call this?"

Ohinbo Aigbogun added:


"But Buhari and his APC members said there was nothing like subsidy during their campaign in 2015, what are they subsidising now? It is only a senseless human being that can give a listening ear to all these cheap criminals who have only be successful in lies and propaganda."
