Renowned Nigerian entertainer and socio-political activist, Charles Oputa, commonly known as Charly Boy, has publicly expressed his support for President Bola Tinubu’s decision to eliminate the fuel subsidy.
However, this move has resulted in a significant price hike in petroleum products, triggering widespread public dissatisfaction.
Price Surge Sparks Outcry
The removal of the subsidy has caused the price of Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS) to soar to over N500 per litre in various parts of Nigeria.
This sudden increase has generated a wave of public outcry and concern among citizens.
Charly Boy’s Endorsement
Charly Boy, who is known for his active involvement in socio-political issues and his support for the Labour Party’s previous presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has come forward to endorse the fuel subsidy removal.
He stated that the timing for such action is appropriate and transcends allegiance to any particular candidate.
Addressing Alleged Criminal Elements
Taking to Twitter, the singer emphasized that the matter extends beyond individual loyalties and instead focuses on addressing the problem of alleged criminal elements that are disrupting the nation’s economy.
He shared a tweet from his official account, drawing attention to Okonjo Iweala’s comprehensive explanation of the subsidy removal.
Charly Boy further emphasized that the fight against corruption is crucial to prevent the continuous plundering of the country’s resources, which leaves Nigerians impoverished and devoid of hope.
In summary, Charly Boy, a prominent Nigerian entertainer and socio-political activist, has voiced his support for President Bola Tinubu’s decision to eliminate the fuel subsidy, despite the widespread public outcry caused by the subsequent price surge in petroleum products.
Charly Boy’s endorsement goes beyond political allegiances, as he believes that addressing alleged criminal elements involved in economic disruption is of utmost importance.
The fight against corruption and the preservation of Nigeria’s national resources are central to his stance.
