Economic Experts Raise Concerns Over N4trn Fuel Subsidy

Some economic experts have said that Nigeria’s economy cannot withstand the current adjustment of fuel subsidy to N4 trillion by the Federal Government.

According to the experts, the N4trn approved by the National Assembly for fuel subsidy portends severe economic implications to the nation’s economy with attendant social upheaval.

In an interview with Daily Independent, Chief Executive Officer of Centre For Private Enterprises, Muda Yussuf, said that the adjustment of the fuel subsidy to N4trillion would unsettle the nation’s economy by widening the unemployment net in the country.

He said because the adjustment has upset the financial position of the public finance situation, an increased poverty level was inevitable and would bite harder.
