  1. It is amazing that fuel could be made this cheap in a place where people are already enjoying the best social support programmes! Yet they keep telling our gullible leaders that we who don’t have any these social support programmes should pay more for we have, petrol.

    We also are entitled to some support programmes. All this money they claim they would save by removing fuel subsidies, where is it? What do they spend it on? Badluck is not the first to remove subsidies . Each time they remove subsidies, Nigerians step lower into poverty. The oil is from our ground. Let us all enjoy it while it lasts!
