He commended the President for the removal of fuel subsidy and stressed the need for the availability of enough fuel so that Nigerians don’t suffer.

“Nigerians should endure and support this administration. Good governance is not pointing to one particular person but we also as a citizen, we have our own role to play to ensure that everything work well.

“Just a simple announcement, it has not been implemented officially but some states have already increased their pump price which is very wrong, that is to show that many Nigerians are not even patriotic especially people that are into this business.

“We are appealing to the people in the oil sector not to take actions that will make the masses suffer and at the end of the day people will start pointing accusing finger to people in leadership position”, he stressed.
