The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has praised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for having the audacity to abolish petrol subsidies and devalue the naira.

According to the PDP, the two economic policies already implemented by Tinubu’s government will provide Nigeria with more than N2 trillion.

Dr Tony Aziegbemi, chairman of the state party, stated this in Benin City on Thursday during an interactive session with journalists.

The election has been declared by INEC, a winner has emerged and my party is in court. What we will do is to live with what we can’t change now.

These two economic policies removal of subsidy and unification exchange rate dished out since he was sworn in were spot on

And in my opinion, it’s the best way to go round this economy that would have been grounded if those measures were not taken.

He, however, cautioned that the palliatives that would be ditched out arising from the subsidy removal would determine the success of the economic policies, adding, “because I know the average Nigerian is hit”.

On why he is commending an opposition-led federal government, Aziegbemi said:

It’s the paradigm shift in policies that we are bringing onboard in the PDP.

I am an economist. So, when I see good economic policies from a distance, I will know.

Speaking about Edo, he stated that Governor Godwin Obaseki is the most misunderstood governor in the country, but he has done more for his state and its citizens than any other governor.

Azeigbemi praised Obaseki for keeping his campaign promises to the people.
He listed some of the Obaseki administration’s people-oriented programmes, such as education and civil service reforms, health and technology hubs where youths are trained in software engineering.

Azeigbemi said;

In the next five years, we are going to have 15,000 trained software engineers that would generate programmes for companies like Google, Apple and others.
