Posted by Thandiubani on Thu 01st Jun, 2023 -

Omokri also urged the government to pay palliatives to the poorest of Nigerians.

A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has asked President Bola Tinubu not to pay severance package meant for ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, and former vice president, Yemi Osinbajo following the crisis generated by the removal of fuel subsidy.
According to Omokri, he is in full support of the subsidy removal as it was part of the manifesto of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
He, however, insisted that civil servant salaries have to be increased and the Central Bank of Nigeria multiple exchange rates must be halted.
Omokri also urged the government to pay palliatives to the poorest of Nigerians.
He wrote, “I support the removal of fuel subsidy with my full chest. It was part of our manifesto as the Peoples Democratic Party, both under Waziri Atiku Abubakar, and former President Jonathan.

“However: 1. Civil servants salaries have to be increased

“2. The CBN must also immediately end multiple exchange rates

“3. Palliatives must be paid to the poorest 5% of Nigerians

“4. The ₦63 billion meant to pay severance to General Buhari, Osinbajo, and the outgone Governors should be halted until 1-3 have been implemented

“If these conditions are met, it will be unpatriotic not to support the deregulation of the downstream sector of the oil industry.”
