Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, has stated that he supports the elimination of petroleum product subsidies with a condition that should be demonstrated to the public.

According to Gist legit, Peter Obi made this known to journalists while attending his ongoing election petition case on Tuesday at the Court of Appeal headquarters in Abuja.

The Labour Party presidential candidate said that his help for endowment expulsion traces all the way back to the Goodluck Jonathan time when he was an individual from the Official Monetary Supervisory group.

Obi said: “If you have followed me very well right from the time I was a member of Jonathan’s economic management team, I consistently maintained that subsidy should be removed because I see it as organized crime.

“People were just stealing the country’s resources, and I showed empirically in my statistical analysis that we are not consuming the amount of fuel they claim we consume.”

The former Anambra State governor differentiated his idea of subsidy removal from what is happening in the country.

According to him, “If you approach a dentist to remove a painful tooth, he will apply a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth so you do not feel pain. It’s not the same thing as pulling the tooth forcefully. The pain you feel will be different.

“For me, I will go with the approach of the dentist while supporting the removal of the tooth because I wouldn’t want to go through the pain of forceful removal.

“Recall that even when Jonathan wanted to remove it, they came up with various relieving policies like Sure-P and others.

“If you read my manifesto, you will see clearly how I planned to remove subsidy. I will govern with the people and show them statistically and empirically what we are getting and how we are deploying it.

“The problem in Nigeria is that when people say let’s go and suffer, let’s go and sacrifice, they don’t see the results of their suffering and sacrifice,” peter obi explains.
