Mr Jide Jimoh, the member representing Mainland Constituency in the House of Representatives, on Thursday said that subsidy removal on petrol by the Federal Government would end the hardship being faced by Nigerians.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Federal Government had on Wednesday announced the removal of subsidy on petrol and pegged its price at N145 per litre as against the previous N86.50.

But Jimoh said that the increment in pump price was aimed at the greater good of Nigerians.

“The increment in fuel price is not to put Nigerians into any form of hardship but to bring change that will bring lasting enjoyment afterward,” he said.

He stated that the hardship currently being experienced by Nigerians would soon be over.

Jimoh said: “I believe Nigerians will smile and there shall be light at the end of the tunnel but Nigerians must understand that President Buhari meant good for the country.

“I just have to appeal to the entire Nigerians on this issue to be patient, it is rather unfortunate but I believe this is going to offer the way forward.

“What is of necessity now is for all of us to rationalise and be creative and at the end of the day allow wisdom to prevail in this circumstance.

“I know Buhari has promised us very good things but the rate at which Nigerians are now getting involved like queuing up endlessly without having the petroleum product is not good for us.”

Jimoh, however, urged the Federal Government to embark on massive provision of buses and rejuvenation of rail lines to cushion the effect. (NAN)
