Some see subsidy removal, i see green pastures in high places

Every life is precious, if you die for fuel subsidy removal, your family will have fuel without you, you’re not a hero, you’re a wise fool. You’re not a terrorism victim that was caught unawares, you put yourself out for it in the spirit of solidarity. The Nigerian Police Force does not use rubber bullets for riot control,once you’re shot during any protest, you risk dying on the spot.

If you want to be a national hero, confront d major security problem Nigeria is facing… On Dec 25th churches were bombed,we saw it on TV, said ” Oh what a mess!” Shook our heads and still ate our christmas rice as if nothing happened. Then came January 1st, everybody’s acting strong because of the fuel subsidy removal : misplaced priority…


Its noble to die fighting, but the big question is ::What exactly r ppl willing to die for, this fuel thing affects everyone. If the government says it knows what its doing, why don’t we watch and wait!

Its true the voice of the people is the voice of God, but sometimes even our parents don’t always give us what we want because they’re sure they know what’s best for us. They call it hard love. Remember, there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Rom 13:1

God took care of Abacha before now,if Jonathan is an issue, leave him for God. We may smell corruption and scam behind the facades of the benefits of this subsidy removal, but patience is a virtue. Just what if we wait a little…

I just heard today that old women in Benin swore topless against Goodluck Jonathan, my response was,

“they cursed in ignorance, so it won’t work”.

What do they think ‘Subsidy’ means, I guess all they heard was ” fuel price don high o, na Goodluck cause am” and then they started raining curses on their president. He’s the head of the country, the head cannot carry the curse alone, it will tell on the body. I refuse to hate on the president, uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

We all know the story of Goodluck Jonathan’s rise to his present office, its a true story of destiny, you may wake up one day to realize you’re not fighting Goodluck Jonathan, you’re fighting his God.

We have differnt opinions of how he could have avoided subsidy removal, we say ‘fight corruption’ as if its an overnight battle, we add ‘ cut down your expenses’ as though it will increase the minimum wage so that the average Nigerian can at least afford the impending high cost of living.


I will be glad if the fuel price is reversed to N65 per litre, but the non-violent protests are being greeted with hostilities and it appears the government has its mind made up.


Protesters are dying in small numbers because of the carelessness of the Nigerian Police. We have lost enough lives to terrorists already, how many litres of fuel are u willing to sacrifice your life for?

The news of death is just news until it reaches your doorstep, until its someone you know: a friend, a brother. Am sure people who have lost loved ones in the protests are at home now, weak, in black clothes, weeping, and wishing they discouraged them from protesting.


I was actually enjoying the humour (mild jokes and cartoons) that came with the fuel subsidy removal on twitter, facebook, and other social networks, and even the unity and solidarity that we proved at the initial stage of the protests, but after the first death, I shook my head…and thought, in my country, isn’t a living coward better than a dead hero?

Wishing You a Happy and Prosperous 2012

      2. I posted this boerfe, but it might help you! :3Usually when I make friends, I start off with something dumb like: Wow, I love your ____.’This flatters whoever you’re talking to so they relaxthen they answer with thanks’ and you can go into Did you get it from ____?’ or Where’d you get it from?’:3 This makes it so you can start chatting about your favorite store, or whatever.Just try doing it with different things, like asking about a book and going into literature, or asking about a band shirt and talk about music etcIt sounds silly, but you can really start off conversations like this. Was this answer helpful?

    1. I am not in support of the reavoml of subsidy without adequate measures being set in place by government to alleviate the suffering of we the masses. The irony is that the so-called subsidy itself is one of the biggest frauds in this country. A certain cabal of Nigerian oil transporters are being enrichened daily as a result of this subsidy. What government should do is make the process more transparent and secondly, build refineries locally and the issue of price of petroleum products will be regularized naturally

  2. If it were left to people like you, the pump price would still be N141. We can’t leave the doors to our homes and say we leave God to protect us.

        1. Nice write up,wats less important is d aouhtr(supposedly kids) and apparent insults (deservedly too). Nigerians need to understand d concept of CAUSE and EFFECT,a fish can fall in love wit a bird,but where will they live? earning (or being dashed) a phD does automatically make u a better choice to lead people. I believe that had ACNand CPC merged without neccessarily winning the Presidential slot for 2011,they wud wrest power from PDP come 2015, but Primordial sentiments,shortsightedness,greed,lack of vision,Inherent animosity within and btw Us has only ensured we remain three steps behind each foot foward.We need a clean slate,how it will happen (revolution is never planned,so its out of d question) is unknown, but we cannot continue this way,the centre will not hold much longer.President Ebele whatsoeveryoucallyourself Jonathan,u need to retake d course NIG101, u’ve lost touch wit d realities on ground,d mercenery did a yeomans job, I never supported but I still believe U can write your name in Gold,Silver and Bronze. God help us all.

      2. It is a pity that we say we are practising drmcceaoy in Nigeria,WHAT A LIE!!! This is more like the millitary era when the head of state can crack down his whip on anyone he wants.Since when did protest become a crime? The arrest of Wale Ajani is an eye-opener to the fact that GEJ is not a president who cares about his people.The rule of law he claims to have respect for is a lie.We demand the immediate release of Wale Ajani,but even if he isn’t released,the 11-11-11 protest will still hold,only that there will be more arrests

      3. Did you read this before poinstg it? Very uncouth, emotional and tasteless. We all agree GEJ is not in the best form but evil? There’s something called refined’ and you do not cut the mark. You sound like you’re an angry primary school buy trying to lead his class on a protest against a wicked teacher! Please GROW UP!
