Great man. I spend 7000 to fill my tank currently as against the 5k it used to take. I drive an hour to work, another hour from work daily. A full tank of fuel takes me for roughly a week. So currently, I spend 28000 on transportation alone, not counting other miscellaneous about the car o. I work with FG and 28k is more than one-third of my salary. So which way naija

Most Nigerians don't realise we've been living in The Matrix. This subsidy removal is the red pill that may wake us up to reality.
We are poor. We are broke. We've been raped, pillaged, looted and left for dead.
All these years our economy has been sustained on the junk food of corruption. We have kwashiorkor but because we look chubby we think we are healthy.
Those two bedrooms in Abuja going for N700 million. Those make up artists charging 500k and pre-wedding photo shoots for 700k. Aso ebi for 90k. Buying Rolexes and Ferraris. Range Rover Sport all over Lagos like keke napep.
It is all fake. It's all a mirage. We've all been living off the spoils of corruption. That's why the country is so hard now. No money circulating. Because no money to steal and rent flats and shops for girlfriends. For civil servants to pay bogus tithes of N500k. For senators to spray dollars at their daughters' weddings. For lagos big boys to spend N2m every Friday night at nightclubs.
It's time to face reality. The party is over. Now we may see the real Nigeria and Nigerians.
Now that money will go into our roads and bridges and hospitals. It will benefit those who don't have a rich corrupt uncle with connections in oil and gas. Those who can't travel to Dubai to celebrate birthdays. Those who don't know what Coldstone ice cream tastes like.
Hopefully the real estate markets will crash. The thieves with 15 houses in abuja will be forced to sell them fast for cash. I would prefer if EFCC seized and auctioned them, though.
All those in the service industry will have to revaluate their pricing. You can't charge 500k to paint faces anymore; free money don finish.
Welcome to the real world

These labour guys should be more reasonable. The subsidy is not benefiting the populace and it'll be more favourable to all if it is removed and the money invested in infrastruture.
I was against d removal by d previous regime because I knew that they would loot d money and they didn't disappoint. But in Buhari I trust.

I hope the NLC is aware we do not have money.

Even back in 2012....we did not have the money for subsidy. Yet....the NLC went and mobilised Nigerians to protest against subsidy removal then because the sad thing is most Nigerians think of how they would get their daily bread....not how their daily bread is made/how we get the ingredients for the daily bread.

At least back in 2012...we had a ''little ingredient for the bread''. Now the shelves are nearly bare. And let's be honest...this APC govt , who by the way is made up of people who opposed the subsidy removal in 2012...have seen the light...thanks to low oil prices...and have raised prices. And are now saving money.

NLC should stop living in dreamland. We are not a rich nation. Rich nations are not dependent on one stream of revenue.(Ask any billionaire in Nigeria if he just has one stream of revenue....s/he would look at you strangely).Rich nations are dependent on innovation and manufacturing. And the sooner NLC and Nigerians realise that economics is not about sharing the money from sale of resources....but using those resources to develop a manufacturing society...the better for all of us.

The government has repeatedly told you that they did not remove subsidy. But rather did fuel price modulation/adjustment .

Negotiating with d FG on increment of minimum wage is d best move, not strike.
NLC has to understand that d fuel price hike is a necessity, not some kinda punishment d govt just feels like giving to us. It has notin to do with subsidy removal but simply LACK OF FOREX.
Ok let's say that d FG suddenly reverses pump price to N86.5. Marketers still won't get forex for importatn from CBN because there's no money. They're still gonna source for it at unofficial rates and WON'T sell at that N86.5 because they'll be making losses. So fuel will still be scarce n we'll still queue to buy at N180-300.
Forex reserves have been depleted and int'l price of oil has slumped.

Total deregulatn is our last hope.

Btw, where was NLC when workers were being owed for months w/o pay?
