The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, Peter Obi has come out to describe fuel subsidy as an organised crime.

He recently had his say while speaking on Arise TV β€˜The Morning Show’, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he has always maintained that the subsidy should be removed because the corruption and criminal side of it should never be allowed to continue.

Peter added that reducing it by 50 percent would have also made a lot of sense if complete removal is seen as a step too far.

His words, “Fuel subsidy is organised crime. I said it repeatedly that it should be removed. For me, the approach would have been, is to remove the corruption and criminal side of it and remove the excess demand.”

“By doing this, you would have reduced it by 50 per cent. The remaining 50 per cent is what we would have been able to, after consultation with various stakeholders in order to find a way in an organised manner, remove and show the proceed of the gains of the removal to be invested in critical development areas.”
