Remove Subsidy, Protect the Poor

In this paper, The Youth Party opposes the decision of the Nigerian government to continue with subsidy. With our revenue realities the government simply cannot afford paying subsidy, hence it should shun dodgy politics and do the right thing. We believe that subsidy on petrol should be gradually removed within a space of six (6) months and subsidy on power should be removed immediately as these payments are not sustainable, they are another consumption subsidy which is not fruitful in the short, mid and long term.
