Gov. Sule Lamido of Jigawa has urged the people to support the Federal Government's planned removal of fuel subsidy, assuring them that the measure would ensure national development.
Lamido made the call at the closing ceremony of a workshop for business editors and finance correspondents in Dutse, saying “I want more money to build more roads.
“I want money so I can tend to the needs of people, for their education, security, and I will make sacrifice to make sure that our tomorrow will be secured.''
The governor argued that if fuel subsidy was removed, it would help the country to achieve greater infrastructure development.
He, however, observed that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation had yet to inform Nigerians about how many billions litres of fuel the people were consuming daily, month and quarterly.
Lamido called on the citizens to trust their leaders and institutions, saying that no nation could grow where there was no trust.?
