Nyesom Wike, the immediate past governor of Rivers State, has praised President Bola Tinubu for eliminating fuel subsidies.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Wike insisted that electing Tinubu was not a mistake.
“He has demonstrated leadership from the first day he took the oath,” Wike says. If we are, to be honest with ourselves, it cannot be business as usual; the subsidy is no longer available. How many presidents are capable of making such a decision? That, to me, is leadership, and he’s ready for it.
“It’s a difficult decision, but he must make it, and no good leader who cares about his people will start playing games.”
“During his campaign, he said it; even the PDP said it, so they all know that this is the country’s problem.” We did not make a mistake; this is the type of leadership that this country requires.”
