Many of you are asking yourselves why you need to get out of your comfort zone and into the streets to protest about the withdrawal of fuel subsidy. The government’s argument is that if we do not stop funding fuel subsidy, the economy will crash and we all will go down with it. But are there no other places to reduce spending to save money? Let us take a few moments and consider these points:

  • David Mark earns N600 million annually, enough money to set up at least, 100 schools in his Benue State
  • President Jonathan and his friends will eat N1 billion worth of food in 2012, while fuelling their cars for N1.7 billion. This amount will build at least, 50 good health care centres in the South-South
  • N200 million was budgeted to water the gardens of the President in 2011. This is enough to educate 200 Nigerians through university education
  • This is more than a quest for economic rights, it a quest for justice. This is not about fuel subsidy, it is about the ruling class’ war on the Nigerian masses. They cannot claim our country is broke when president Goodluck Jonathan continues to feed fat on N3 million worth of food everyday. They cannot claim to be broke when they increased the recurrent expenditure of the 2012 budget by another N92 billion. They cannot claim to be broke when the First Lady just spent N5billion furnishing an office. They cannot claim to be broke when in the whole budget is about their salaries and allowances.

BOTTOM LINE: Government seeks to impoverish us the more by removing fuel subsidy while they continue to waste money on their friends and families!

ACTION PLAN: We will have PEACEFUL PROTESTS in all the 36 states + FCT from Friday 6th of January 2012 at 10am. We do not condone violence so why not Join US and also spread the message to everyone around you. WE shall prevent people from going to work and helping the government inprison us in poverty while the ‘leaders’ buy mansions and travel all over the world.

This is a fight for all of us: students and workers, unemployed and self-employed, bike men, taxi men, traders, teachers, mai-ruwa, barbers, mechanics, househelps, newspapermen, tomato sellers, civil servants, students, business men…in fact, EVERY NIGERIAN! We all have a duty to make the government change its mind and we will not stop protesting everyday until petroleum subsidy is returned!

“This is your fight. There are no activists anywhere to save you. This is the time for you to become your own messiah. Now take your place on the arc of history, call out to your neighbours and friends, the Nigerian morning of Justice has come!!!” -Japheth Omojuwa (Editor,

  1. We support the cause a 100 n 1x. There’s no reason why we can’t buy fuel at a subsidised rate…if nothing else fuel should be affordable to US the tax payers!!! In the UAE fuel is still heavily subsidised,u can fill ur tank with less than 3000 I.e supposing u have a jeep!! Its all crap,we’re tired! Tired!! Tired!!!

    1. Greatest Nigerians! I am fully in support of d mass action because I believe all dis nonsenses must stop. But come to think of it, is there anything like fuel subsidy? According to their (FG) contradictory statement, “they pay subsidy on petroleum but there is a cabal dat sit on d money”. The question dat we Nigerians should ask dem is if d cabal is diverting de money, den where does d money go? into subsidy, or to d pocket of d so-called cabal. The problem with dis people is dat dey lack quality information about d module operandi of Nigeria Petroleum and dey are perishing in their own ignorance. Must innocent Nigerians suffer for d crime we don’t commit or must we be punished for d government inefficiency? A capital NO! Let’s not be deceived, u cannot remove what never existed. U can only stop d corrupt system and bring d perpetrators to justice. I believe in Nigeria where there is justice and equity, righteousness nad truth, where there is no oppresion nor terrorism, where there is no misappropriation of public fund nor office and wher d rule of law is true, operational and effective. SAY NO TO OPPRESION! SAY NO TO IMPERIALISM! SAY NO TO FALSE REMOVAL OF FALSE FUEL SUBSIDY! ONE LOVE NIGERIANS!

On wetting their gardens, furnishing their houses n office, going on luxirous trip, eating superb food etc On the other hand, the masses are at the receiving end, they leave in hardship in just 2-3days since the removal of the subsidy. Are practicing democracy at all!

  32. Treasure · · Reply

    This is well a thought-out write up. But I wish to state that is too late to start a protest that we want to have an impact. The fact is that in Nigeria, an average worker is already at the office by 8am. and if we want to ensure that no work is done, then we must ensure that everybody joins in the rally or stays at home (there is should be no third option). The impact can only be strong when there is no economic activity at all.

    We have been known for protests without result, but this time we must have result and so we must make calculated attempts at achieving our objective.

    God help us.

    I beg to dissent a bit. Nigeria is in a very sensitive state now and the concept of peace in Nigeria now is more delicate than ever before, a little stagger can break it to pieces. We need to be very careful.
    The question is what is our gov’t trying to do by removing this subsidy?
    Do they rely wish to oppress us?
    Is there any merit in there decision?
    It appears that we have forgotten so soon that we conceded to this when we thum-printed on their side of the ballot papers.
    We trusted in their ability to govern us. Why can we not give them a chance now to prove their competence.

    1. Madueke, Haba! Man, what are you talking about?

      Before we thumb-printed on their side did they not promised to improve the life of the common man?
      Did they promise to remove subsidy?
      Is the life of the common man improving now? (may be your’s is improving because you are eating from the fat share they gave themselves)
      Is subsidy removal an improvement in the life of the common man?
      Nigerian runs the most expensive democracy. What single thing did they do to reduce the cost of governance?

    In as much as I would love to join a peaceful protest for the right of the Nigerian people I will also like to know what the pragmatic suggestions of this association is to the current Nigerian situation. It is not enough to just kick against a fiscal policy without having an alternative suggestion. Nigeria didnot get to this stage in one day and it would take drastic measure to get out of it, we can say reverse the subsidy and letz continue in our deteriorating state or we accept the fiscal policy which may be hard on everyone initially but at the long run is for the Good of all Nigerians. The choice is ours, let noone deceive us!!! America was in bad state almost four years ago, the republican criticised obama n his policies but almost 3.5years later the economy indicies r beginning to turn around. Naija is in worst state and no quick fix we solve our problem now!!! We can continue to eat our future in d name of fuel subsidy but one day we will staill be faced with thesame decision we keep pushing forward. God bless Naija (Naija dey Bam!)

    Yes, it is indeed time for us Nigerians to act before those wicked leaders send us into extinction.
    They compare us with developed countries in prising fuel but not in terms of governance and provision of infrastructure.
    They travel abroad, enjoy d goodies over there but it never occured to them to bring home those goodies they enjoy abroad.
    Their school abroad, they receive the best of medical treatment abroad.
    In Nigeria, they abandon our hospitals, schools, roads etchas no roads, water, electricity. They tell us that these lacking because fuel was subsidiced.

  180. I really think this Íڪ uncalled for, in my own opinion. Why?? Firstly, this entire blog Íڪ one-sided. You say that govt says the economy will crash if they don’t stop funding fuel subsidy. If this Íڪ true and u are saying govt should keep funding it, it simply means you are pushing for †ђξ economy to CRASH!! Fine it Íڪ noted that govt officials are looting or however u put it, and cutting down on those expenses Íڪ necessary but it Íڪ not crucial to saving the economy. If you were a doctor and you have two patients – one for a cosmetic surgery and †ђξ other needs a liver transplant desperately, which do u attend to first!! (This Íڪ just an example BTW). So pls no offence to your post but initiating something of this sort could be harmful to human life and †ђξ economy as well. I think we should let Mr President roll out his plans and give him †ђξ free hand to fully implement them. Thanks

    1. pls.. if u dnt much about wot’s goin on in d nation….. stop analysing unnecessarily. Go and learn about dose developed nations our so called president is trying to copy,, then u can comment

    2. All we are saying is the govt shuld consider how d poor iz goin 2 survive, explore oda options. b4 doin somtin lyk dis somtinz nid 2 b put in place lyk constant nd affordable power suply, gud drinkn water suply nd fud,gud transport system in place. y not deregulate d curruptn nd fraud in dis country by cutting dwn govt expenditure nd let say some percentage of d subsidy nd put somtn gud in place 4 d masses, nd gradualy wit tym they can lift al of it witout ppl even noticing.

    3. Mr man, you may be talking with sincerity but with ignorance. Fuel subsidy did not cause our economy to go like this. All is the fault of corruption. Even the money they withdrew from subsidy will also go to their personal pockets. Am talking base on expirience, that’s what has been happening all this while. Therefore, you are either ignorant or you are part of the oppressors. Peace!

    4. I mean Its sad enough that this is a sensitive issue and many wise thinking Nigerians are involved, economist, lawyers and the global watchdogs but its appalling that some people rather than extol d virtue of critical thinking appraise issues blindly. I guess samuels or samuel must have been paid to think in a shallow manner and that’s very dysfunctional n dis Tonda guy come on who are you this is not about Jonathan this about whether we run a democratic government or an autocratic goverment after all niger delta people fought for ibori I’m not surprised!

    If we say, do not remove subsidy! then we mortage this country to the priveliedged few in charge of importing fuel.

    Our fight should be :-
    postpone removal of subsidy to march/ april to plan better ; afterall subsidy is already on the available oil now.
    Give us realistic plans to cushion the effect of removal, with timelines.
    Let us know how and when measuring of milestones and reports will available.
    Give time to fix power, to reduce the use of fuel for other commercial activites.
    Subsidize transportation.
    The alternate list goes on. . . . . But we can’t keep subsidy.

    The government of nigeria have nothing to do with the plight of the masses, that is why the leaders always introduce new policies to keep the masses contemplating/debating,while they (the officials) concentrate adiquetly on looting and travelling abroad. It was kidnapping 3 hours ago, boko haram 2hours ago, and now oil subsidy syndrom, which of these problems did the government succeded in tackling? Nigeria has everything a country should have,but her leaders are not ever seriouse to make good use of the resources for her citizens, more talks less or no action.on the topic of the day,(fuel subsidy)with protest against it or not, its already a failed project becouse this is not the right time for it, and there would be no time for it as far as nigeria is concern, and we have to wait for time that can actually tell of the failure of this ignoble and dishonest project.

    “A leader has the right to be beaten but never to be caught unawares…”

    To think that the presidency and or his cabinet has not done an overview of the likely aftermath
    of removing the much touted fuel subsidy is definitely nothing more than mere musings.
    Yes! i believe that Nigeria is experiencing birthpangs and birthpangs no matter how painful, heralds a new birth,
    new life and relief for the carrier of the pregnancy.
    Going through my facebook page, i discovered that quite a large number of the people involved in the occupy Nigeria
    protest are as ignorant as their arab rising counterparts who blame the Western world for their domestic woes!
    We just seem to be asking the wrong question at the right time.
    Lets start here… The home grown terrorist group in Nigeria – boko haram, on monday 02/01/2012 gave a 3 day
    ultimatum (expiring today!) to all christians and southerners in all the northern states of our beloved country.

    It takes someone with foresight to be able to connect the dots… that external forces comprising both physical and spiritual
    just might be involved in all these… “when all these things do conjointly happen, let no man say they are natural!” – Julius Ceaser

    Someone is definitely missing something! Nigeria has come too far to breakup at this juncture (you dont have to agree!)
    What i see is a woman undergoing labour pains and she shall bring forth! Even the Western world knows that Africa alone is the
    saving grace for the imminent implosion about to be experienced world over. South Africa which had been touted to be a major force in Africa
    unfortunatley lost the battle on moral grounds with the acceptance of the immoral western bug (homosexuality; they are also high
    on the HIV/AIDS listing).
    You do not need a prophet to tell you that 2011 protests were simply preambles for the power shift/transfer about to be experienced worldwide!

    If you can just go down memory lane and check out the history of how USA freed themselves from Britain, you will discover that
    Nigeria is just about to be free indeed!
    What then should we do? a very hard thing i will ask of the Nigerian youth… go back to the drawing board and chat a new course
    for our dear country because responsibilities (quite huge ones) are coming our way soonest! I tell you emphatically that the fuel
    price increase wont kill us neither will it kill our economy… the presidency did right thing, only we no longer trust our
    leaders with money and they also are not saying everything but who does all that anyway?

    The Nigerian youths should at this point organise themselves and plan for the coming responsibility. take it or drop it, the location of
    World power is about to change, maybe not to Nigeria but i am rest assured that Nigeria will be instrumental to the achievement of
    that end (we are the means!)

    Distractions i say, are all these boko-subsidy issues… take the pain to see beyond the now!
    What then are we missing?… that Nigeria is about to breakforth into everlasting bliss but certain forces (human & suprahuman)
    are bent on shifting her gaze on the face of the sure blaze of GLORY!
    Tell those who dont know that the point in itself is neither the boko haram nor the subsidy removal (they are mere rumours of war)
    the point realy is that we are about to take over (seems bleak and standoffish to the myopic!)

    Yes, we are being beaten but we will not be cauught unawares… we shall be prepared, we are ready, we shall breakforth…NOW!

    Tell them that we have seen the light!
    Tell them that now we know!
    Tell them that we are aware of who we are!
    We are Nigerians! Gods own people (We are the largest exporter of God to the world!)

    We shall not lose focus!
    We shall not be dismayed!
    We shall stand as one!
    We Shall overcome our challenges!

    We Shall get there!

    I believe Nigeria is the best place to be right now!
    I believe Nigeria is the best Country to belong to now!
    I know that Nigeria, at the end of 2012 will be a world power broker!
    I am a Nigerian!
    I am Proud!

    GOD BLESS NIGERIA…and everyplace else!

    Ideally we re in critical situation,this nigerian government just only waste their tackling the crisis of boko haram and niger delta,while this oil subsidy removal is more riskable than boko haram coz the subsidy removal can cause to vandalize goverment assets or properties.

    It is obvious that Nigeria in now under the total control of the imperialist power. After the war in Iraq and Libya, the level of Oil accumulation for industrial growth in America and Europe has drastically fall down. What next, is to look for a country with refined and abundant Oil and with leaders that lack sincerity of purpose and lack of national interest at heart. Nigeria is of course an ideal environment to provide that soft landing. GEJ and his irresponsible and myopic Executive have succumb to that and sold our country on the flatter of Gold. As the USA and Europe are preparing for 2015, which according to them will be the year for Nigeria’s disintegration, let them note that our God is watching, and as they plan, He is also planning and He’s the best of planners.

    The problem is because our minister’s and adviser’s cannot use their brain to think and see other area that we need to block to increase money available for capital development because it will affect their personal comfort and greed except petrolem. In every budget, they have built in the number of personal houses,plaza,estate,hotels,cars,the best school to send their children to abroad. CONCLUSION: Both past and present leaders,any civil servant of Director level should be prepare to summit themselve to the People Audit Committee to account for their wealth or else no to subsidy removal. Let us all go down like Greece Nation. We should ensure that they cannot fly out of Nigeria until we have cure them of the fair of the unknow that makes them to plunder the resources of the nation.

    Also- No hope on electricity power supply, maybe unlit Ghana comes to the rescue of the African most populous country with blessed resources bastardised.
    Now- unbearable increase in fuel price called subsidy removal on Nigerians despite on going tensions in the country.
    What next? Maybe, privatisation of all roads; as removal of subsidy of public roads, whereby al Nigerians wil pay for passage, even from one village to another. After the privatization of NNPC.

    Nigeria is blessed with lots of resources but is still one of the poor nations of the world. If we as citizens of this country can‘t enjoy the wealth that God has blessed this nation with, atleast our greedy leaders should allow the poor masses to enjoy fuel subsidy.
