A concerned citizen has voiced the mind of Nigerians and their opposition to the planned removal of petroleum subsidy by the Federal Government with the following statement:
Mr President is shouting, Federal Government is shouting. Governors are shouting, even ministers. The cabals are benefiting from subsidy. Can someone tell Nigerians who these cabals are! Nigerians will never buy fuel for N140. If we do, we become the most stupid in Africa.
“The cost of fuel per litre in OPEC member states -Saudi Arabia $0.12 (N18 per litre), Kuwait $0.79 (N32 per litre), United Arab emirates-$0.37 (N57 Per litre), Venezuela 0.5$ (N7 Per litre), Qatar-0.22$ (N34 per litre), Iran-0.42$ (N17 Per litre), Algeria-$0.20 (N31 per litre), why is our own different.
Roads are bad, jobs are non existent, legislators’ salaries is astronomical, minimum wage is unsustainable, electricity is virtually at zero output and we have not been able to fix not even one of our refineries to full production capacity and President Jonathan ‘Badluck’ or whatever he calls himself and his co-thieves want to make our lives more miserable when their kids and families enjoy d best of anything life has to offer when an average Nigerian feeds on less than $3 a day.
“The hopes and aspirations of the people have been dashed by the insincerity of those at the corridors of power and as such, it will be difficult to persuade the people of their sincerity in the fuel subsidy removal debate.”
“People no longer trust the government because it has told so many lies; no capital project has been implemented 100 percent since the advent of democracy,” he added.
The ground is ripe for a revolution. If we have to revolt, let’s start now…… The revolution starts now!”
