Atiku : Oshiomhole kicked against fuel subsidy removal under Obasanjo
Former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar has revealed that the Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) kicked against fuel subsidy removal when Olusegun Obasanjo was president.
Oshiomole was President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
Atiku who spoke through his twitter handle said he was the one assigned to negotiate with the NLC chairman, but his efforts were frustrated.
“The Obasanjo government in which I served commenced a phased subsidy withdrawal. I was tasked with negotiating with then NLC Chairman and current APC Chairman who stood strongly against it.
He added that “nonetheless, we achieved two phases of subsidy removal of fuel and complete withdrawal of subsidy of diesel before we left office.”
