The Governor alleged Buhari had agreed that fuel subsidy spending by the government made no sense but refused to halt it.

Responding to a question about fuel subsidy, El-Rufai said: “Between September and November 2021, the National Economic Council gave us an assignment to work out what to do if we withdraw subsidy, how much will be raised, etc. We worked with experts and the World Bank.
