Written by News Room on November 28, 2021
The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) has warned the Federal Government Against removing subsidies on petroleum products.
The Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed Shamshuna, had on Wednesday announced that the government would remove fuel subsidy in June 2022 and replace it with a monthly 5,000-naira transport grant to about 40 million poor Nigerians.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, NANS President, Adedayo Asefon said the Federal Government embarking on such a decision will further heighten the hardship in the country.
The students’ body also rejected the government’s plan to pay 5,000-naira transport allowance to 40 million Nigerians to cushion the effect of soaring fuel prices.
