Effects of Fuel Subsidy Removal in Nigeria

Increased price of commodities

Coke is now selling for 100 Naira

Pure water is selling for 10 Naira. Bread is selling for 100 Naira ( use to be N40)

A derica of beans costs N250 ( use to be N120)

Transport fare from Yaba To Ojota used to be N100, it now costs N300

The standard of living in Nigeria today is too high for an average family.

How can someone earning N10, 000 survive with all these.

A mother of 3 earning N15,000 will definitely have to starve to take care of her children.

Sadly, these crazy politicians don’t buy fuel (they use official car), they don’t pay house rent, they don’t pay bills ( they reside in official quarters )  they don’t buy food, water is free, hospital bill is free, official cars, air fare grants, everything is free for them.

A big shame on these dumb ass government.

    It is a revolution that brings solution whn situations re above control by capable Government. think Nigeria should be divided as d situation @ hand is more than one President to solve. So that we knw where we re going. Nigeria need to face the reality of things.

    The issue of fuel subsidy removal is a good development, but the approach from the federal government is just too harsh and at the wrong timing. Firstly, Mr President needs to cut down all unreasonable excesses, stabilize the power supply, constructs good roads and put in place all other necessary things. Then, we can now think of subsidy removal.
