President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has reassured Nigerian workers that the government is prepared to review their salaries as a measure to offset the impact of the fuel subsidy removal.
During a courtesy visit by Ekiti State Governor, Abiodun Oyebanji, and members of the National Assembly from the state, Akpabio emphasized that the removal of fuel subsidy by the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration aims to tackle corruption in the petroleum sector.
He asserted that this step marks the beginning of the fight against corruption in the system.
“The removal of fuel subsidy was a necessary move for Nigeria’s survival in the coming years. To ensure that Nigerians have a living wage, salaries and wages of workers will be reviewed,” Akpabio stated.
Acknowledging the contributions of Ekiti State representatives in the 10th National Assembly, Akpabio praised their dedication and commitment to the legislature.
He affirmed that Ekiti State, known as the “land of knowledge,” has much to offer the country and pledged collaboration for the overall benefit of Nigerians.
In response, Ekiti Governor Abiodun Oyebanji commended the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, for his achievements in office during the last month.
He expressed unwavering support from the people and government of Ekiti State for Akpabio’s tenure as President of the 10th Senate, highlighting their readiness to collaborate with the legislature in advancing the country’s progress.
