The Kogi state Commissioner for Information and Communication, Kingsley Fanwo has said that the state government is yet to release subsidy removal palliative plans.
In a statement issued by the ministry of Information which stated that the attention of the Kogi state government has been drawn to a document, purported to be the palliative programme of the Kogi state government to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal on the masses.
“The state government wishes to state unequivocally that the document in circulation did not emanate from the Kogi state government and should be disregarded by the general public.
“The government is working on an inter-ministerial approach to come up with a realistic plan that will help ameliorate the impact of fuel subsidy removal on Kogites. We will release the plans officially through our channels of communication when they are ready.
“We called on the people of Kogi state to be patient with us as we are preparing to fashion out the short, medium and long term plans that will address their concerns and the economic pressure associated with the fuel subsidy removal.”
