Former Nigerian Vice President and PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has said that former Governor of Edo state and chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomole frustrated the Obasanjo-led administration’s plan to remove fuel subsidy. 

Atiku Abubakar made this knwon in series of tweets he shared on Saturday night. He recalled being the one assigned to negotiate with the NLC chairman, a meeting that ended up not being unsuccessful. 

Atiku tweeted; 

“The Obasanjo government in which I served commenced a phased subsidy withdrawal. I was tasked with negotiating with then NLC Chairman and current APC Chairman who stood strongly against it. 

Nonetheless, we achieved two phases of subsidy removal of fuel and complete withdrawal of subsidy of diesel before we left office. -AA
