Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari not to entertain any plan to remove fuel subsidy but rather establish modular refineries to ease the pain of the citizenry.
Falana said this while speaking at a symposium organized by the State Political and Legislative Powers Bureau in collaboration with the June 12 Coalition of Democratic Formations at LTV, Agidingbi, Ikeja in commemoration of 22nd anniversary of annulment of the June 12, 1993 general poll.
He said, “I am challenging the All Progressive Congress, APC, led Federal Government because there are pressures on President Muhammadu Buhari to inflict more punishment on Nigerians by removing the fuel subsidy.”
The activist stressed that those who have stolen the wealth of the country must be made to pay back.
Falana lamented that governors have paid less attention to the diversion of public funds in the country, saying “We must take back every penny from the oil companies who owe the federal government.
On modular refinery, he said, “In our neighboring countries, they have modular refineries and they were built between $1 million and $15 million.
We must start to construct this especially in Lagos State. With this, we will not be inflicting punishment on the citizens. We will not be losing money but raise money.”
