Powerful interests behind subsidy scam —Bewaji, Ex-Reps Minority Leader


Former Minority Leader in the House of Representatives and member of the Subsidy Committee set up by the National Assembly in 2005, Dr Wunmi Bewaji, speaks with BOLA BADMUS on the petrol subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu and how the government can address its attendant economic hardship.


Nearly all the candidates in the last presidential election promised to remove petrol subsidy, but definitely each of them would have his approach to achieving that goal. But what people are saying is that before President Tinubu made the announcement that subsidy is gone, he ought to have put the palliatives on ground to cushion the pains on the people. What do you say to that?
