Subsidy: Federal Government Will Review Workers Salary





Nigeria's Senate President, Godswill Obot Akpabio, has stated that the Federal Government will raise workers' pay to compensate for the loss of fuel subsidies.


On Tuesday, while hosting Ekiti State Governor Abiodun Oyebanji and members of the State legislature in his office at the National Assembly, Akpabio told Nigerians that the Federal Government was aware of the hardships being encountered as a result of the removal of fuel subsidies.


According to him, the withdrawal of fuel subsidies was part of the current administration's efforts to combat corruption, as the fuel subsidy regime stinks to high heavens of corruption.


He said “Nigeria as a country would not have survived the next few years if the fuel subsidy had not been removed”, stressing that the government will have capacity to pay salaries and wages, if reviewed upwards.


Earlier, Oyebanji praised the Senate President for his accomplishments in the last month.


He reaffirmed the people's and government's complete commitment to the success of his time as President of the Tenth Senate, as well as their willingness to work with the legislature to take the country forward.
