Dear President Tinubu,
I hope this letter finds you well. I want to express my deep concern regarding your recent indecisiveness on the issue of subsidy. It’s disheartening to witness a leader of your stature flip-flopping on a matter that has far-reaching implications for the economy and the lives of everyday Nigerians.
You’ve publicly declared your stance against subsidy, emphasizing that there is no provision for it in the budget. This position was welcomed by many who believed that your commitment to this course would pave the way for a more transparent and economically sustainable future. However, the sudden shift in your approach has left many of us perplexed and concerned.
Changing a policy that you’ve openly championed raises questions about your intentions and priorities. It’s crucial for a leader to make decisions based on a well-informed assessment of the situation and the best interests of the citizens. Your wavering on this issue undermines the trust that the people have placed in you and casts doubts on your commitment to the principles you’ve articulated.
I implore you to make a definitive decision and stand by it. If you genuinely believe that there is no provision for subsidy and that its removal is essential for the country’s progress, then I urge you to maintain that stance. If you’ve identified new information that necessitates a change in direction, then please communicate it transparently to the public. Inconsistency erodes credibility and fosters an atmosphere of uncertainty that our nation can ill afford. As a leader, your decisions have a profound impact on the lives of millions of Nigerians. I urge you to prioritize the well-being of the citizens over political expediency.
Engage with experts, economists, and concerned citizens to ensure that your choices are well-informed and aligned with the best interests of the nation. It is my sincere hope that you will heed this call for clarity and consistency. Nigerians deserve a leader who remains steadfast in their convictions, who listens to the voices of the people, and who makes decisions that pave the way for a better future.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
