Reverse Fuel Subsidy Or Resign, NBA Tells Jonathan
Nigerian Bar Association(NBA) Ughelli branch, Delta State yesterday had a peaceful protest which lasted for over two hours. Mr Sunny Asanuvwie, the chairman of the branch said the Nigerian Bar Association was against the removal of fuel subsidy. He described the decisions of President Goodluck Jonathan as oppressive and criminal in nature.
He boldly stated that the protest is to demand a reversal to N65 per litre. The government cannot be trusted as it has no convincing explanations that it has good intentions for the people. The president wants to use this policy to make the poor even poorer, to impoverish the Nigerian masses.
Chief Peter Wanogho, the former chairman of the branch noted that “the removal of the fuel subsidy affects more than 130million Nigerians who don’t have jobs. “More than 90 percent of Nigerians are against the withdrawal of petroleum subsidy, and if Goodluck Jonathan claims to be democrat, and majority of the people are against the removal of subsidy, then he should reverse it.
“We cannot allow a cabal, which is anti-democratic, parading themselves as democrats to destroy the democracy we fought for.”
