Why govs support deregulation – Shekarau

GOVERNOR Shehu Shekarau of Kano State has challenged the Federal Government to explain how it will spend the funds that will accrue to it from the removal of petroleum subsidy. The ANPP governor spoke in an interview with journalists in Ilorin shortly after the Association of Former Councilors in Nigeria gave him an award among other distinguished Nigerians.

Shekarau explained that the governors supported deregulation because of the reality that it is only some few importers that benefit from the present system. He said: “There is wisdom in arresting the situation as it is now with 100 per cent importation of fuel, because all the refineries are shut down and, if we don’t do anything, it is some few importers that will be living on all of us.”
