Victor Ndoma-EgbaThe Federal Government must put an end to fuel subsidy regime if it is desirous of recording any major success in the anti-corruption campaign, the immediate past Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), has said.

Ndoma-Egba, who was the senator representing Cross River Central Senatorial District, told journalists in Calabar on Monday that subsidy is the “biggest corruption infrastructure”.

He said, “For me, I think the issue of subsidy has provided the biggest independent infrastructure for corruption in this country. And if you must address the corruption, you must start by addressing the biggest single infrastructure of corruption, which is subsidy. It has never been kept at the level for which it was budgeted. It has always been in excess and the entire subsidy regime, remains very opaque.

“So for me I think it is a huge opportunity for corruption and if we must fight corruption from the fundamental, then we must go to the issue of subsidy. They say it would affect the common man if you remove it, but I don’t know how many common people use vehicles. Now if you say it would affect the price of goods, the goods that we transported by lorries, which use diesel. So I think it is an issue that must be frontally interrogated and dealt with once and for all. But as a person I don’t believe in subsidy”.
