Following the widespread anger occasioned by the hike in fuel price, the Director, Media and Publicity of the defunct Tinubu-Shettima Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga has called on Nigerians to be patient with the President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

In a tweet on his official handle, Onanuga admitted that everyone, including those in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, are all feeling the heat arising from the removal of fuel subsidy.

He urged Nigerians, particularly those destructively criticizing the president, to stop and wait for the palliative that would mitigate the effect of the subsidy removal.

The APC chieftain ruled out the possibility of returning the suspended fuel subsidy regime, describing it as fraudulent.

He wrote, “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”.
