President Tinubu has given his word that he would ensure that all stakeholders carried along in his government formation process.

However, the issue of fuel subsidy removal which has caused a lot of hardship to Nigerians would also form parts of the topics to be discussed.

In the meeting, the president is also expected to highlight his administration’s measures for addressing the effects of the subsidy removal, considering that petrol prices have surged to as high as N750 per litre throughout the country.

Meanwhile, the Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited, NNPCL, Mele Kyari has doused lingering tension arising from the sudden spike in the price of fuel, noting that normalcy would return to the country as fuel price would come down in the next two or three weeks.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to be calm amid the current fuel price hike.
