Akume Speaks on What Nigerians Should Expect After Fuel Subsidy Removal

Senator George Akume, secretary to the government of the federation, says President Bola Tinubu’s government is dedicated to improving the living conditions of Nigerians.

While acknowledging that no administration is without flaws, Akume noted that the pains currently being experienced by most Nigerians would soon be over.

“This government will not disappoint Nigerians. The President means well but we can go wrong. When we go wrong, correct us,” the SGF told a delegation of the North Central People’s Forum, NCPF, led by Sardauna Plateau, Senator Jeremiah Useni in his office on Monday.

Akume listed some commendable actions taken by President Tinubu which, according to him, have positively influenced the national economy and are recognized by both local and international policy makers.

The SGF urged Nigerians to bear the pains of the removal of subsidy on petrol and its negative impact on cost of living.

He promised that after the pains, there would be significant improvement in living standards in the country.

Akume commended the pedigree of members of the delegation most of whom had held prominent positions at national and state levels.

“I’m very proud to be associated with you all from the home base” Akume  said, even as he sought their invaluable counsel and prayers.

The chairman, national executive committee of NCDF, Engineer Sani Ndanusa, said the members came on behalf of the people of the north-central zone to congratulate the SGF on his appointment and wish him a successful tenure.

As the highest political office holder from North Central zone, Ndanusa urged Akume to “take absolute political control” of the zone by having quarterly meetings with the North Central Governors Forum, NCPF leadership and with other critical political office holders to discuss developmental strides of the area.

He described the OSGF as a veritable engine room of the government and urged him to attract key appointments to the zone.
