The Executive Governor of Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has said he is shocked and scared of the Federal Government’s inability to plan and effectively respond to the fuel subsidy removal policy that has further improvised Nigerians, inflicting hardship and suffering on the people.

Speaking in Benin City, the state’s capital, the governor said: “I have always warned. I warned Nigerians during the last May Day this year. I told them that we have come to the end of the road and that the old economic order in Nigeria is gone and we have to come up with a new economic order and stop deceiving ourselves as a nation.

The consequence is that the weakest and most vulnerable in our society, unfortunately, will carry a huge part of the burden of these policies. I am shocked that people who campaigned around the Country, saying that they will remove subsidies, had no clear plans on what to do after subsidy.
