Labour Party Condemns President Tinubu's Subsidy Removal, Citing Historical Parallels
LP Raises Concerns Over President Tinubu’s Subsidy Removal, Predicts Fuel Crisis


In a recent development, the Labour Party (LP) has strongly criticized President Bola Tinubu’s announcement regarding the removal of subsidies, drawing a parallel between his actions and the reign of an Egyptian Pharaoh from biblical times. The LP expressed concerns about the potential consequences of this decision, particularly for the Nigerian people.

In a statement issued on Monday, the party’s Acting National Publicity Secretary, Pastor Obiora Ifoh, highlighted the negative effects of such a move. He emphasized that the queues at petrol stations have resurfaced, and Nigerians are once again faced with the daunting task of waiting in long lines to obtain a limited amount of fuel, similar to the hardships experienced during the previous administration.

The LP criticized the subsidy removal, arguing that it would place an undue burden on the citizens and exacerbate the prevailing economic challenges in the country. They expressed worry over the potential increase in the cost of living, as well as the adverse effects on transportation, businesses, and the overall welfare of the Nigerian people.

Pastor Obiora Ifoh’s statement also referred to the biblical era, drawing a comparison between President Tinubu’s decision and the actions of an Egyptian Pharaoh who imposed burdensome tasks on his people. The LP cautioned that if the subsidy removal remained unchecked, it could lead to a similar situation where the masses would be subjected to unnecessary hardships.

The LP called on President Tinubu to reconsider the subsidy removal decision, urging him to prioritize the welfare and interests of the Nigerian people. They emphasized the need for sustainable and comprehensive solutions that would not further burden the already struggling population.

As the debate surrounding the subsidy removal intensifies, Nigerians eagerly await the government’s response to these concerns raised by the Labour Party. The citizens hope for a resolution that will address their grievances and ensure a more favorable and equitable economic environment.
