Nigerian FG to remove fuel subsidy in 2016 ? Kachikwu

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, on Monday revealed that the federal government has concluded plans to remove the subsidy on fuel.

Kachukwu told the Senate/House of Reps joint committee on the Medium Term Expenditure Framework, MTEF, that the subsidy bill was ?on the high side.?

He revealed that the country had spent an average of N1trillion per year on fuel subsidy in the last five years despite mounting debts and infrastructural deficit.


According to Kachikwu, ?The total subsidy figure for 2015 when taken along with the NNPC will be in excess of N1 trillion. We can get this specifics but the point is largely that it does not involve NNPC because the agency takes its off-cuff.

?We will work towards taking those figures off our budget in 2016. They are critical issues. The current pricing work we are doing had shown that there shouldn?t really be subsidy. The government doesn?t need to subsidise.

?There is energy around the removal of subsidy. Most Nigerians we talk to today would say that?s where to go. I have since left the dictionary of subsidy by going to price modulation which is a bit more technical.

?Price of refined products today is N87. It was N97 before it was reduced and we really have to go back to that because we don?t really have the finance to remove it.
