Assurance has been given by the Federal Government to pursue individuals attempting to disrupt its initiatives aimed at delivering democratic benefits and enhancing the lives of all Nigerians.

This commitment was articulated in a statement released by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, which was shared with the press in Abuja on Friday.

President Bola Tinubu has reportedly implemented significant measures since taking office to advance his economic vision for Nigeria.

Among these measures was the immediate termination of the petrol subsidy program.

The minister noted that the President also pledged to direct the savings from the subsidy removal towards essential investments in public infrastructure, education, healthcare, and social welfare.

He highlighted that the monthly allocations received by states from the Federal Accounts Allocation Committee, FAAC, had risen following the removal of the subsidy.

The minister criticized the opposition’s unpatriotic rhetoric regarding the fuel subsidy abolition.

“It is noteworthy that the elimination of the petrol subsidy was a policy decision on which all three major candidates agreed in their 2023 political campaigns,” the minister remarked.

He expressed bewilderment at those who previously advocated for the subsidy removal now opposing it.

“This lack of sincerity is detrimental to our nation and our democratic principles,” he emphasized.
