No plan to remove fuel subsidy – FG


The Minister of State for Petroleum, Mr Timipre Silva on Thursday assured Nigerians that the Federal Government has no immediate plan to remove fuel subsidy.
The Minister made this known while fielding questions from Legislators at a joint session of National Assembly Committees overseeing the oil sector.
“This government is not about to remove subsidy because it is difficult; we believe as a government that our people are going through a lot.
“We cannot as a responsible government hip another issue of petroleum price hike or removal of subsidy on Nigerians.
“It is not on the cards at all, we are just looking at how we can manage it,” he said.
