He said: “It is important to clarify that food palliatives are only a stopgap measure to show empathy and reach out to the people, especially the most vulnerable ones among us.

“It is not the only step the government has taken since the removal of fuel subsidy.

“Government is committing huge resources to hasten mass production and use of gas and electricity-powered vehicles nationwide as well boost agricultural productivity, manufacturing, and small and medium scale enterprises.

“We are in this together, and I plead that we work together as one people bounded by one destiny to get over this current challenge,” AbdulRazaq added.
