Fuel Subsidy Removal: Nasarawa flags-off distribution of FG, State palliatives

Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has flagged-off the distribution of food items as palliatives to the people of the State, aimed at cushioning the hardship being experienced by Nigerians as a result of the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.

The Governor commenced the distribution of the items, comprising of rice, vegetable oil, seasoning cubes and noodles, provided by both the Federal and State governments, at a ceremony at the palace of the Emir of Lafia, on Tuesday.

According to the Governor, the exercise which will be replicated in Akwanga and Keffi on Wednesday and Thursday respectively, is meant to bring succour to the people especially with the hardship being experienced across the country following the removal of fuel subsidy.

Sule said the palaces have been selected for the distribution because the palliatives are meant for all citizens of the State, irrespective of political affiliations.

“The essence of the event has been defined clearly to everybody to understand that this is just a flag-off.

“What we are trying to do here, by the grace of God, we will replicate, and it will happen in every unit of Nasarawa State.

“Tomorrow (Wednesday), we are going to have a similar flag-off at the palace of our father, the Chun Mada in Akwanga.

“And then on Thursday, we will have another flag-off that is going to take place in Keffi, at the palace of the Emir of Keffi.

“The reason we go to palaces, is first, this is not an event for our party, the APC, this is an event for all political parties, for all the people of Nasarawa State irrespective of political affiliations.

“This is to show you that we are interested in carrying everybody along.

“And, we are interested in taking the responsibility bestowed on us by Allah,” Sule said.

In her remarks, the Commissioner, Ministry of Special Duties and Humanitarian Services and NGOs, Hon. Margaret Elayo, called on those charged with the responsibility of sharing the palliatives to discharge their responsibility with sincerity and the fear of God.
