Kashim Shettima, the vice president-elect, has stated that eliminating the gasoline subsidy and eliminating various exchange rate systems will be the first problems for the next administration.
Shettima made the remarks at a public lecture and Juma’at prayer at the National Mosque in Abuja on Friday.
He warned that the start of Bola Tinubu’s administration would be difficult.
“Be rest assured that in the fullness of time, Nigeria will pay glowing tributes to us. The starting point might not be rosy, let me be very honest with you.”
“Oil subsidy is an albatross on our neck, the multiple exchange rate system is a drain on the national economy.”
“There are certain decisions the president-elect will take, but in the fullness of time, Nigerians will not only appreciate but also celebrate us,” Shettima said.
