It is worth noting that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu removed subsidies on fuel during his inauguration speech, stating that it was a waste of resources.

In a letter he left behind by the man protesting the reinstatement of fuel subsidy, he called on Nigerians to join the protest.

His letter partly reads;

“IT’S LONG ENOUGH!!!
