    Lets stop encouraging interventionist programs like SURE-P, PTF and co who only duplicate the roles of the actual MDAs with the responsibility. The example in Jigawa state could have been done by the Ministry of Health if same funds was provided to the Ministry and not SURE-P.

    Secondly, there IS NO SAVINGS! We are broke! We have been borrowing to fund subsidies for a long time. Ask DMO that issue the Sovereign Debt Notes (SDN) to marketers.

    This time around, FG won’t borrow to pay for subsidies.

      Then they should enable NNPC stations to sell at N100 per litre for the lower class individual and businesses to queue for fuel at NNPC expense. NNPC is a government owned company. They don’t need profits, just enough to cover operating cost or even run at a loss till the gap is reduced when refinaries goes full force.
      Over 60% below poverty line. No attempt to offer them an option?? No consideration. We understand the price hike but to pretend as if those who may not be able to cope is irrelevant is just brutal. No support for strike sha. Labour should forget it.

    “…Citizens now live in fright of the state, indiscriminate arrests, selective prosecution has now become the norm” What planet are you living in? You are well aware that, that is not a statement of fact. Selective prosecution?, Who do you suspect that ought to be prosecuted that is not being prosecuted ? If you know then your NGO that should encourage and drive change, has not been able to put a pen to paper, even as you mention the colossal level of corruption riddling the subsidy administration. The fuel subsidy right from its inception had not been fit for purpose anyway, it merely reminds me of how Nigeria use to export raw rubber and imported tyres. No matter how it is removed thank heavens it is gone. It was a fraud and we know it. I do not want to get into the inability of that one term president to market it to Nigerians. He did not have a picture of what Nigeria should look like.
    Finally, on your social programmes to ameliorate the removal of the fraud, Nigeria, does not owe any one a living. Nigerians have always coped, and they will. Lets we forget that Nigeria itself is collective project.
