The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu has said President Muhammadu Buhari will go down in history as a courageous leader who brought sustainable development by removing subsidy.

The Presidential aide on Sunday said history will be kind to President Buhari as the leader who implemented real changes to economic and overall national development by eliminating the evils of corruption inherent in subsidies.

Shehu stated these in a statement titled “History will be kinder to President Buhari than his critics are prepared to be.”

He was reacting to public outcry as a result of the recent hike in fuel price and electricity tariff.

According to him, the reforms that led to the hike in prices are “necessary and overdue.”

“Subsidy removal in these sectors had long been foreseen by successive administrations as game changers in search of solutions to move forward with the nation’s development. These are reforms that are necessary and overdue. Blueprint upon blueprint, timeline upon timeline had come and gone but the courage to take bold decisions was not there,” Shehu said.

He said President Buhari has made the changes with the greater good of the people at heart rather than for selfish interest.

She added, “In carrying out the reforms, the president needs the support and understanding of all citizens-inclusive of the opposition parties, the labour movement and civil society groups.

“In these challenging times, the president is pushing development goals, not politics and history will judge him in favourable terms rather than his critics in the new media and the opposition.”
