Mai Mala Buni, the Governor of Yobe State, has introduced relief measures to alleviate the hardships caused by the removal of fuel subsidy in the state. The announcement was made in a statement issued by Mamman Mohammed, the Director General of Press and Media Affairs to the governor, on Saturday in Damaturu.

In response to the challenges resulting from the subsidy removal, the governor stated that the government would focus on providing support to various sectors, including farmers, traders, and the transportation, food, and other essential needs of the people. The government is fully aware of the difficulties faced by the people due to the subsidy removal and is committed to offering palliative measures to assist them.

Specifically, the government plans to address issues related to inter- and intra-town transportation, ensuring that essential services reach the people efficiently. Additionally, the state government aims to provide shuttle buses for students in tertiary institutions at affordable costs.

Governor Buni urged the people to collaborate with the government in successfully implementing the proposed measures and other policies and programs designed to benefit the state.

Earlier in the week, Governor Buni participated in the Nigeria Governors Forum and the Nigeria Economic Council meeting, where states and the federal government discussed strategies to mitigate the effects of the fuel subsidy removal.
