The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo, on Thursday, commended President Bola Tinubu for his decision to remove subsidy from Petrol and free-float the naira currency.

PDP chairman in Edo, Tony Aziegbemi, gave the commendation during an interactive session with journalists in Benin.

Mr Aziegbemi said the two economic policies would give the country an excess of N2 trillion.

He, however, cautioned that the palliatives arising from the subsidy removal would determine the success of the economic policies.

“The two economic policies are the best way to go round the economy that has been grounded. I am an economist. So, when I see good economic policies from a distance, I will know,” he said.

Similarly, the PDP chief also lauded Governor Godwin Obaseki’s administration for delivering on its promises to the people.

He noted that Mr Obaseki was the most misunderstood governor in the country, adding that he had done more for his Edo than any other governor.

Mr Aziegbemi listed education reforms, health and technology hub where youths are trained in software engineering as some of the Edo governor’s achievements.

“In the next five years in Edo, we are going to have over 15,000 trained software engineers that would generate programmes for companies like Google and others,” stated the PDP chair.
