FEW PEOPLE LOOTED NIGERIA THROUGH SUBSIDY – TINUBU
President Bola Tinubu said on Monday that a few people stole Nigeria’s commonwealth under the guise of subsidy in the last 40 years.
Tinubu, however, lamented that Nigerians are suffering the pains of the loot.
Speaking at the second-term inauguration of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State in Owerri, the President said he is well-attuned to the concerns of citizens, assuring them that the challenges brought on by the very essential reforms are being addressed.
He also disclosed that his administration will give more attention to education and healthcare, as well as provide the enablements for industrialisation and investments in consonance with his vision of creating an economically stable and prosperous country.
According to Tinubu: “In the past 40 years, a few people were cornering our commonwealth and calling it subsidy, but I call it wasteful. Right now, we are all bearing and sharing that pain. But things are looking up. Things will get better for the good of all Nigerians. With me, there is hope.“I assure you that there will be substantial development in education for your children; priority is on industrialisation and healthcare will receive more allocation and attention. We will train more health workers.”
