Palliatives: Soludo rolls out measures to ameliorate economic hardship in Anambra 

The Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo said on Tuesday that Nigerians should begin to live within their means.

Soludo made the statement during the 9th (7th Quadrennial) Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Anambra State wing, describing the removal of subsidy as necessary.

He commended President Bola Tinubu for his courage to end fuel subsidy.

He stated that the removal had the potential to re-engineer the nation’s economy.

According to him, “It’s high time the country woke up to the reality that it is a poor country and began to live within its means.

“Starting from those in leadership, there was a need to begin to live and demonstrate to the people that Nigeria is a poor country.

“The reality of the subsidy removal affected everybody, not just civil servants. The present administration’s plan to cushion the effects was all-encompassing, including immediate and medium-term efforts.”

Soludo said his government would recruit more teachers and continue to give accessible and quality education to the citizenry.
