President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has promised to repay the trust and mandate of Nigerians with dividends of democracy.
He said the removal of fuel subsidy was to free up the massive resources of the nation in the pocket of a few rich, admitting it posed temporary pains on the masses.
He however said the sacrifice will be repaid with provision of infrastructure, transportation, education and others to lift the standard of living.
Tinubu, on his maiden democracy speech to mark the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential poll won by late Chief MKO Abiola, said : ” Painfully, I have asked you, my compatriots, to sacrifice a little more for the survival of our country. For your trust and belief in us, I assure you that your sacrifice shall not be in vain.
“The government I lead will repay you through massive investment in transportation infrastructure, education, regular power supply, healthcare and other public utilities that will improve the quality of lives.”
