Godswill Akpabio, the new Senate President, on Thursday has said that Nigerians that the Federal Government is set to review the workers’ salaries following the removal of fuel subsidy.
Akpabio, according to a statement issued by his media office, stated this when the Ekiti State Governor, Abiodun Oyebanji and members of the National Assembly from the state, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.
He stressed that the removal of fuel subsidy by the current administration was aimed at addressing corruption in the nation’s oil and gas sector.
President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday ordered the review of the monthly distribution of N8000 initiated by the federal government to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal of Nigerians.
Akpabio said: “Nigeria as a country would not have survived the next few years if the fuel subsidy had not been removed.
“ The salaries and wages of workers would be reviewed in order to ensure that Nigerians have a living wage.”
