FSR GOD FORBID

Save our souls from GEJ and his CABALS

Just the begining

This is not just about fuel subsidy removal! Nigerians are saying enough is enough to corrupt and insensitive government!

nigeria

Nigerians need to be enlightened about this terifying situation.every living have to know that his life have limit,but how far?it is better you choose a free life or you die as a slave.

Where do we remove subsidy from......

Where do we actually need subsidy removal from?
National Assembly budget,
President/VP feeding/upkeep budget,
Minister of state without a defined role/office
infact the list is endless.

The Revolution

Its about time we revolt against this government, this selfish beings that call themselves our leaders. the corruption in the system has even dripped down to their kids. we need a total eradication. labour must ensure the strike action goes on as planned. they must they dont allow this people break their ranks either by use of force or by bribery. labour must ensure all the banks and the goverment parastatals and agencies in the country are shut down. that is the most effective way to shut down the economy. we want N65 per litre. Until we have 24hrs power and our refineries are working, there is no moral justification to remove subsidy.
i think we need to decree death penalty for corruot people like its done in china and singapore.
Nigerians lets unite for once and fight this injustice

Administrative addindum!

Sir, I heard the subsidy has been removed and there has been crises in some areas because of it.
Sir, inasmuch as it is affecting me as well, am still with you on it only if you will positively make use of the of the funds, though from your budget, I noticed you you will, because you removed from consumption (subsidy) to production (agriculture).
So, from now onwards, the few Nigerians that share 3.7 Trillion Naira of our money annually wouldn't be doing so again. Am happy!
Sir, I heard you also planning to build refineries for us AFTER almost 19years! (Wonder what the past administrations has been doing).
I know Nigerians are angry but I hope you will proove them wrong.
Sir, I want you to look into something for me, something am not happy with.
Please Sir, I will like you to review the salaries and allowances of our politicians. I believe it will help curb corruption.

DANGER DANGER DANGER!

Fuel price wasn't right before neither is it right now. The removal of fuel subsidy isn't timely. The government ought to find a way to stabilize the price.
The protesters and government (most especially) have to be very careful so as not to spark DEADLY VIOLENCE! (Its never the solution)

Amidst this challenges, i respect the Nigerian spirit -"Suffering and Smiling"
See how Nigerians are making fun out of this fuel mess

Buhari should be laughing now

The day Buhari finished his campaign he he cried for the country but most Nigerian and Jonaist started laughing some even say they should give him big bucket but I think thousands of container Drums should be made available cos few might not be enough for tears to come from those that mock him then BUHARI DEY LAUGH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

PURE BAD LUCK

jonathan has no point at all
when obansanjo was going he left lots of money in the national treasury and still awarded lots of contract
but this one finish all the money in the treasury dint award any contract and even remove fuel subsidy this is not fear at all

GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN IS A DISGRACE TO IT PEOPLE!!!

War on Nigerians

By this very action President Goodluck Jonathan has simply declared war on Nigerians. Why did he not tell Nigerians during his campaign that this was his intention.He should realise that Nigerians have taken note and that we shall meet during the next elections when his PDP will finally be told to go home.

we told you people not to

we told you people not to vote for obj or sorry jonathan,i cry for nigeria,

Amen!

Amen!

Buhari should be laughing now

The day Buhari finished his campaign he he cried for the country but most Nigerian and Jonaist started laughing some even say they should give him but I think thousands of Drums should be made available cos few might not be enough BUHARI DEY LAUGH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

REMOVAL OF FUEL SUBSIDY

There is no fuel subsidy and there is nothing to be removed. President GEJ should first fix power generation and then increase the pump price of fuel. Most Nigerians buy petrol for power generation . If all the money budgeted and released to prof Nnaji were rightly utilized to generate electricity, Nigerians will not be crying over 150% increment in the pump price. The president should also FIX CORRUPTION which is the main issue. Every one in government lives above their rightful means.
Most importantly, what is security vote? Why is it not reduced? Am not sure that the president's economic team is aware that there is no electricity in Nigeria. When they compare indices with foreign countries, they should remember that there is no power , poor road net works and no rail net work in Nigeria.
Analysts should take all these factors into consideration but making conclusions.

Bravo!

I feel so gladen to see people like Femi Falana, Seun Kuti and Banky W among others who have show up to protest against the fuel subsidy removal. This shows that Nigerians are really patriotic and are speaking with one voice. I want to thank all those who came out for this struggle and also to urge more of us to come out and say NO to PMS subsidy removal.

They barricaded the road to eagle square today with fierced armed policemen so as to scare us but we shall not relent. Nothing can stop us. They shall know no peace henceforth until the decision is reserved. THIS IS A PROMISE!!!

NIGERIAN ARMY REMOVE THIS BADLUCK

LET THE MILITARY TAKEOVERRRRRRRRRRR

Beginning of The End of Jonathan.

This marks the beginning of the end of saddist called Jonathan who lacks milk of kindness. Nigerians have been so good to this man but he has chosen to be an ingrate. When he was helpless and being kicked left & right by Turai & her cabals; it was Nigerians to rose up to put him on his too feet. Now that he has got his voice, he has chosen to pay Nigerians back with evil, wickedness, suffering and poverty. History will judge him bad as the worst President to have ruled Nigeria.

Jonathan is a dictator that have no respect for Nigerians. He has NOT finished consulting with Nigerians when he rabidly removed oil subsidy. He is heartless and should be impeached immediately. If the national assembly refuse to impeach this saddist, Nigerians should go after the wives & children of those lawmakers in the national assembly and abduct them until they send Jona out.

Impeach the wicked Jona now.

PEOPLE DESERVE LEADERS THEY ELECT!

In a civilised world GEJ & PDP would never smell power in this last election. However people voted for sentiments, religion and section of the country except Osun state and you see now. Only in Nigeria!!

YOU CREATED THIS MONSTER CALLED GEJ AND U BETTER DEAL WITH IT AS IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE!!!

Greeed!

If this GEJ and his greedy ministers can tell us their salaries,make painful salary cuts then Nigerians will believe them ,but this is the reverse ,Okonjewela or wot do they call her came to enmasse dollars,for herself and family ,pretending to come rescue Nigeria,wicked people that ll rot in hell!

Whatever happens to Nigeria

Whatever happens to Nigeria now will NOT be blamed on the Hausa man since the Hausa man left the leadership of Nigeria in 1998. The country is worse-off now starting with Obasanjo. Yaradua’s two years in office saw a little calm and tranquility in Niger Delta and transparency in elections in Ananabara. Obasanjo and his boy Jonathan desire the death of Nigerians and Nigeria

A New Dawn in Nigeria

Our Revolution is NOW! Let's chase the corruption politicians into the river, by any means necessary.
