Peter Obi Equates Fuel Subsidy To Organized Crime
Obi said that the government is responsible for oil theft in the nation.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The Labour Party’s nominee, Peter Obi, has once more criticized the federal government for its gasoline subsidies.
Obi said that the government is responsible for oil theft in the nation and added that gasoline subsidies are “organized criminality.”
According to the previous governor of Anambra, only the government can steal oil in Nigeria.
On Monday, September 19, 2022, Obi made this statement at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (LCCI) Private Sector Economic Forum.
Obi revealed that he had waste allergies in response to a question at the expense of government from the panelists.
He insisted that a revamp of the nation’s security architecture was necessary.
Obi also advocated for multi-level police, starting with the national level and ending with local security.
You may remember that in July, Obi said that if elected, he would eliminate subsidies since they are bad for the economy of the nation.
Obi remarked while speaking on Arise TV, “I will remove the subsidy and look for something to replace it. The subsidy is a scam.
“It’s not going to be business as usual. You need to go back and read what one of my former aides wrote about how I used stinginess to cut the cost of governance.”
Days after leaving the People’s Democratic Party in May, Obi became the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.
