Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, Femi Gbajabiamila, has stated that the benefit of fuel subsidy removal will soon be reaped in the country.
He said this after casting his vote at Poling Unit 014, Ward 08 at Elizabeth Fowler Memorial School, Surulere, Lagos state, in the House of Representatives by-election in the constituency on Saturday.
His assertion came as a result of the economic downturn currently faced in the country, according to The Nation.
He maintained that the challenges Nigerians are facing are because some fundamentals were missing in the first place.
“It is those economic fundamentals that this administration is trying to put in place, including fuel subsidy removal which was a national concession that it must be removed.
“I assure you that the benefits of subsidy removal will be reaped soon. It’s not immediate but the President knows what he is doing, and at the end of the day, everything will work out fine.”
He added that security remained everyone’s concern but assured that the President is deeply concerned and at the fore front of it all.
