Ifedayo Olarinde, also known as Daddy Freeze, a well-known broadcaster and socialite, has backed President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s call to remove petroleum subsidies.
Kanyidaily recounts Tinubu’s announcement of subsidy removal at his inaugural speech at Eagles Square on Monday. He stated that the “fuel subsidy is gone.”
Nigerians, particularly opposition groups, have expressed mixed feelings over the development. While some praised Tinubu for taking the risk, others said the move came at the wrong moment.
In response to the outrage from Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi’s followers, Daddy Freeze, on his Instagram page, reminded them to an earlier post in which Peter Obi described gasoline subsidy in the country as an organised crime.
Daddy Freeze responded to Obi’s tweet, saying, “Before you start complaining, even Peter Obi said he would remove subsidy.”
