The Young Progressive Party (YPP) has described the payment of fuel subsidy by the federal government as a “scam.”
This claim was made by the YPP vice-presidential candidate for the 2019 elections, Umma Getso on Friday.
Umma spoke at the vice-presidential debate organized by the Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria (BON) and the Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG).
She also called on Nigerians to take back the country from its current crop of leaders, pledging that the party will give equal representation to women.
“To be candid, [the] subsidy to a typical Nigerian is just a scam,” she said. “That’s how I will call it, the way President Buhari once said in the Newspaper.”
