The Director of Media and Publicity for the dissolved All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga has called on Nigerians to exercise patience over the hike in fuel price.
This has led to outrage across the nation, with the citizenry lamenting over the economic hardship brought upon the country by the increment.
Reacting to the situation, Onanuga urged Nigerians to be patient with President Bola Tinubu.
He warned the citizenry against attacking the new administration.
Speaking via Twitter, the APC chieftain pleaded with Nigerians to wait for the promised palliatives.
He opined that it is impossible for a country to go through progress without experiencing some pains.
According to him, “In this season of high fuel price, I want to plead with our people to exercise some patience. We are all jointly experiencing the pain. All those intemperate attacks against the new government of President Bola Tinubu should stop. Let’s await the palliatives as his government has promised. Let’s await the palliatives that will flow from each state as more money is channeled to them from the subsidy savings.
“We cannot go back to the hyper fraudulent subsidy regime where we were spending more money on petrol than on roads, education and health. My people, patience, patience please. I beg you all.
“No country has ever made progress without the people going through some pains. Our country under Tinubu’s watch shall certainly excel.”
