Atiku Accuses Tinubu of Still Paying Fuel Subsidy

Former Vice President and 2023 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the Tinubu-led government for its continued payment of fuel subsidy. Atiku expressed his shock and dismay in a statement released on Wednesday, highlighting his concerns about the government’s ongoing support for downstream consumption.

The issue of fuel subsidy has been a contentious topic in Nigeria for years, with many arguing that it is a drain on the country’s resources and a burden on taxpayers. Despite this, the government has continued to allocate funds for the subsidy, with projections indicating that expenditures could rise to a staggering ₦5.4 trillion in 2024.

Atiku’s criticism of the Tinubu-led government’s stance on fuel subsidy is significant, given his status as a prominent political figure and presidential hopeful. His statement serves as a reminder of the need for transparency and accountability in government spending, especially in areas as crucial as energy policy.

The former Vice President’s remarks also raise questions about the effectiveness of the current administration’s economic policies and its ability to address pressing issues such as fuel subsidy.
