President Bola Tinubu has pledged to provide relief measures, known as palliatives, in response to the fuel subsidy removal, urging Nigerians to exercise patience during this transition. The assurance came after a productive meeting with the ’99 Governors at the Council Chamber in Abuja, conveyed by the Chairman of the class, Lucky Igbinedion of Edo State.

In an address to State House correspondents, Igbinedion emphasized the President’s vision for a stronger nation and affirmed that the era of subsidies is now a thing of the past, with expectations of normalization in the near future. He further emphasized the need for collective efforts to build a greater nation, transcending partisan interests.

During the closed-door session, the former ’99 Governors, a group of 26, discussed critical national issues including insecurity, unemployment, and electricity, all aimed at advancing the nation’s development.
