Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the removal of fuel subsidy by the federal government.

According to him the move by the Buhari led administration was the right one.

Atiku, who stated this on his Twitter handle, called on the federal and state governments to remove other impediments and roll out incentives to spur investments in the oil sector.

He said: “The federal government finally withdraws from the fuel subsidy and price-fixing bazaar that had been rife with corruption and stalling investments.

“This is something patriots have been calling for and for which I was demonised.

“The stoppage of subsidy and price-fixing is a right move, although it should have come earlier when the economy was stronger.

“Federal and state governments should proceed to remove other impediments and roll-out incentives to spur investments in the sector, especially the numerous refineries that had been licensed but are yet to be built.

“Then ensure the quality of fuel meets set standard.”
