Peter Obi, Labour Party, LP presidential candidate, has thrown his weight behind the call for the removal of oil subsidy in Nigeria.
The former Anambra state governor said the Nigerian Government must end what he described as “criminal petrol subsidy.”
Obi, who stated this in a series of tweets on Thursday, said the country needs to look beyond oil.
According to him: “Going forward, we must look for ways to move Nigeria beyond oil.
“We must end this criminality called ‘oil subsidy.”
He also lamented that Nigeria is “vastly polarised and wrecked by divisions that run deep along religious, ethnic and regional lines.
“There is a staggering level of corruption. Our universities have remained closed for over five months. While our healthcare system remains comatose, power generation and distribution are also at an all-time low.”
