The 2023 presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has vowed to remove fuel subsidies if elected in the coming general elections.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state stated this at a business luncheon with business owners in Laos on Thursday.
The APC flagbearer also promised to contain the security situation in Nigeria so that entrepreneurs can have an enabling environment for business.
The former governor said if elected, he would take bold decisions that would turn the nation’s economy around.
Tinubu declared that Nigeria would not continue to subsidise fuel consumption in neighbouring countries.
“How can we subsidise the fuel consumption of Cameroon, Niger, Benin Republic?
“No matter how long you protest, we are going to remove the fuel subsidy”, he vowed.
