Subsidy Withdrawal Is Ploy To Make You Fail, South South Monarchs Tell President by youngmonie: 2:38am On Dec 31, 2011
The Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers has cautioned President Goodluck Jonathan against the proposed removal of fuel subsidy.
Speaking through their chairman, King (Prof) Theophilus Princewill during an interactive session with journalists at the council’s secretariat in Port Harcourt yesterday, the royal fathers said removing the subsidy could be a ploy to make him not to succeed as the first person from the South-South zone to occupy the exalted position.
The traditional rulers also condemned the “acts of terror” through bomb blasts by “Islamic extremists called Boko Haram,” which they said had been killing innocent Nigerians and destroying property across Northern Nigeria.
They admonished the President to have more consultations on the
planned removal of fuel subsidy, in order no to make theadministration unpopular at this crucial period of bomb blasts byBoko Haram, while the fuel cartel should also be dislodged.
The royal fathers added: “President Jonathan should be very careful over the planned removal of fuel subsidy. Many regimes have come andgone, without removing the fuel subsidy. Our (South-South) man is there. They do not want him to succeed.
“This is the first time a South-South man has come to the limelight. The many challenges are to thwart his efforts. He must be careful.”
