National Dialogue: Presidency blasts Tinubu

The Presidency has said the view expressed by a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju  Bola Tinubu, on the proposed national conference is not that of the Yoruba.  It said  since  Tinubu  “spoke  for himself,” his opinion shouldn't be misconstrued to be that of the Yoruba. The Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan  on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, stated this at  a news conference  in Abuja on Monday.  Okupe said that Tinubu's initial reaction on arrival from  his overseas medical trip on October 5  was not well-thought-out.

The former governor, who is also the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, had   described the national dialogue   as  “a Greek gift   and an act of public deception” which  was    ill-timed because of its closeness to the forthcoming 2015 elections.

Government Will Continue To Dialogue With You Until You See Reasons Why Subsidy Must Go – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has insisted that there is no going back on total subsidy removal. However, he said the government would continue to dialogue with Nigerians, to make them reason with the government on why the proposed removal is necessary.
The president made this known during the Nigeria Summit 2013, organised by The Economist, in Lagos, on Tuesday. He said it did not make economic sense to continue to waste resources meant for greater number of Nigerians to subsidise the rich in the society, stressing that his government would continue to enlighten Nigerians on the need to remove the subsidy.
In the words of the president: “We cannot continue to waste resources meant for a greater number of Nigerians to subsidise the affluent middle class, who are the main beneficiaries.”
Recall that the announcement of partial removal of the subsidy on January 1, 2012 led to a week-long strike and civil unrest.
