In an article titled “Removal of oil subsidy – President Jonathan breaks social contract with the people,” Tinubu criticized the then federal government over what it described as the “Jonathan tax”.

Several checks on previous statements made by Bola Tinubu show that the Nigeria’s 16th President made the statement on Wednesday, January 11, 2012, in an edition of The Nation newspaper as published by Vintage Press Limited.

Recall Tinubu recently declared he will remove fuel subsidy from July 1, 2023, emphasising that his government will not provide funds to subsidise the product – an action social critics describe as “hyprocritical” following his (Tinubu) position on same subject matter in the past.
