Niger: Subsidy removal palliatives will soon roll out – Bago 


Governor Mohammed Umaru Bago of Niger state has assured that government palliative to cushion the effect of subsidy removal will soon roll out urging the people to show more understanding and confidence in the administration at all levels. 

The governor stated this in a  Sallah message issued by his Chief Press Secretary,  Bologi Ibrahim in Minna. 

“I am aware of the economic difficulties occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy. I therefore appeal to the people to show understanding and confidence in the present administration at all levels as efforts are being made to roll out palliatives to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal,” he said. 

The governor urged Muslims to use the occasion to deepen their faith and imbibe the virtues of love, obedience, and sacrifices as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (A.S).

He charged the Muslim ummah to remain devoted to their religion and show kindness and tolerance to foster harmonious co-existence in the society. 

“I congratulate all Muslims on the celebration of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir, I call on you to imbibe and reflect on the great lessons of the festival of sacrifice which are the hallmarks of Islam,” he said. 

While praying for improved security and peace of the state in particular and Nigeria in general, Governor Bago reassured citizens of his determination and commitment to building a new Niger state where peace, unity, growth and development will reign

In a related development, the senator representing Niger East, Mohammed Sani Musa, assured that government is on top of the situation in tackling security challenges in the state. 

In a Sallah message Tuesday in Minna, the lawmaker said: “I assure you that the government is on top of the situation as President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has shown the capacity to tackle the myriads of problems facing many parts of the country.”
