Fuel subsidy protest to spread to India, Egypt, United Arab Emirates

The protest in Lagos

The planned protest in London has received supports from Nigerians across the world.

Organisers say they have received calls from the United Arab Emirates, India and Eygpt.

Nigerians in these countries, they say, are already mobilising to start similar protests.

There are also plans to carry the protest to other parts of the UK.

“In Manchester, mobilisation has reached its peak and we understand that as soon as they get a go ahead from the police, the protest there will commence as well,” one of the organisers told Premium Times this morning. “Many Nigerian students based in Scotland will also be joining the London protest tomorrow. They will be travelling all night from Edinburg.”

One of the organisers of the London protest was also on BBC World Have Your Say show yesterday where he spoke on the issue.
