Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP presidential candidate, has called for an end to the oil subsidy regime in Nigeria.
Obi said the Nigerian Government must end what he described as “criminal petrol subsidy.”
In a series of tweets on Thursday, August 11, 2022, Obi said Nigeria needs to look beyond oil.
He wrote: “Going forward, we must look for ways to move Nigeria beyond oil.
“We must end this criminality called ‘oil subsidy.”
He also lamented that Nigeria was polarized along religious and ethnic divides.
Obi said Nigeria is “vastly polarised and wrecked by divisions that run deep along religious, ethnic and regional lines.
“There is a staggering level of corruption. Our universities have remained closed for over five months. While our healthcare system remains comatose, power generation and distribution are also at an all-time low.”
