Fuel price hike: It’s too early to cry – SDP’s Adewole Adebayo


The presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the last election, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has said it is too early to decry the policies of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

He spoke with Arise Television on Wednesday while reacting to the present economic crisis occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy which has imposed hardship on Nigerians.

There has been widespread anger across the country over the recent hike in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as fuel.

Newspot reports that prices of food items and other essential goods and services have skyrocketed following the hike in fuel prices from N537 to N620 in the nation’s capital and other parts of the country.

Reacting to the uproar generated by the hike,


Adewole declared that Tinubu is yet to unfold his own policies, which could bring about more complications.

He said some of the measures the president is currently taking are just based on what he met on ground, stressing that Tinubu’s policies are yet to come.

He said: “This is the consequence of the votes you cast, and it is too early to cry now because the real problem hasn’t come. But when these problems come, we should solve them as a country; we should not see them as politics.

“President Tinubu is taking certain measures that are legacy measures of what he met on the ground. His own policies have not come out. When they come out, you will see that there are complications there.

“You can be an expert in winning elections, but you have to be an expert in running a government. I have not seen that expertise yet. Maybe when the cabinets come out and they start to think.”
