What is the Fuel Subsidy?

The fuel subsidy was like a discount on fuel that the government used to give. This made petrol cheaper for everyone.

A fuel subsidy in Nigeria is a government policy where the government reduces the price of petrol (or fuel) below market level. This is done by the government paying a portion of the cost.

To put it simply, imagine that the actual cost of petrol is $3 per litre. But the government doesn’t want citizens to pay this much. So, they introduce a fuel subsidy. This could mean that citizens only have to pay $1 per litre at the pump. The government then pays the remaining $2 to the petrol companies.

This makes petrol more affordable for everyone in the country, which can help people with lower incomes. But it also costs the government a lot of money.

Why Remove the Subsidy?

President Tinubu removed the subsidy to save money. The government can use the saved money for important things like schools, hospitals, and roads.

What Happens Now?

With no subsidy, petrol won’t be as cheap as before. This could make travel and goods more expensive. But, it could also make us more careful with how we use fuel and make us consider greener options.

How Do People Feel About It?

Some people think it’s a good decision that will make the economy stronger in the future. But others are worried about how it will affect people who don’t have a lot of money. Femi Falana, a well-known human rights lawyer, says, “This will put pressure on people, especially those with low incomes. But it could also help the country to invest in renewable energy.”

How Can You Adjust to the Change?

Here are some ways to deal with the changes:

  1. Find different ways to travel. Consider sharing rides, taking the bus, or even walking or cycling when you can.
  2. Think about energy-saving appliances and cars. They might be expensive to buy but can save you money over time.
  3. Support renewable energy. Backing green energy could help us depend less on petrol.

In Summary

President Tinubu’s decision is a big change for Nigeria. We’ll have to wait and see how it affects our everyday life.
