hallygilbert said, “I saw some people’s comments on instablog yesterday happy about this subsidy, saying it’s the best for Nigeria? now it’s barely 24hrs n people are complaining. When I saw those comments I knew most Nigerians dunno what subsidy removal means. You guys would still buy this fuel 700-800 naira cos Tinubu hasn’t stated his price yet, na wicked and heartless Nigerians just fix this price oo?.. This subsidy would cause mad ass inflation. Baba never go aso rock oo e don remove subsidy. I am still wondering why he did that just after Dangote Refinery launched days ago. What is the usefulness of the Refinery, when u still have to remove subsidy? Baba wan collect the money e used for campaign n co back from Nigerians ?. You guys dunno what u are in for????‍♀️”.
