Benin city

BENIN CITY - A student body under the aegis of Edo Youths For Good Governance (EYFGG) yesterday carried out a protest march, calling on the federal government to revert its decision on the removal of fuel subsidy.

The group also circulated a letter which was signed by its President, J.C. Iyamu Osaro and Director of Public Affairs, Comrade Ehigiator James, saying the decision for the removal was orchestrated by the ruling class to continue to impoverish other poor Nigerians.

He said unemployment which had been the bane behind the criminal vices like kidnapping, armed robbery, bombing and insecurity in the land could have been addressed through direct investment on infrastructural development across the decaying sector of the economy that spaned the length and breathe of the country.

The group which carried placards with inscription such as: “Say no to fuel subsidy removal”, Say no to austerity measures” and Say no to local colonial leaders on fuel prices” accused the President Jonathan-led government of inflicting pains on Nigerians.

The statement added, “Since Jonathan emerged as the President of Nigeria, we have continued to experience economic crises, insecurity and another pain have been added unto our pains, we are saying no to fuel subsidy removal, we are saying that Jonathan should harness the resources of the country, he should create an idea that is geared towards impacting on the lives of our people.

Today we see austerity measure in the country; we are ready to join all the civil groups to protest the removal of fuel subsidy. We will continuously embark on massive protest, there is going to be revolution like what we see in Libya, Jonathan is a failure.

Based on the 2011 and 2012 budget proposals breakdown (www.budgetoffice.gov.ng) by Mr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The administration has or would spend the following:

a. Presidency-State House-HQTRS

Total taxpayers money used to support the President and his office is N18 344 524 169(Over 18 billion) in 2012.Which include such expenses as:

1. Purchase of buses for N161,270,120 (almost 170 million naira) which was also provided for in
the 2011 budget to the tune of N323 055 556 (over 323 million naira).The question I have for the presidency is whether they are running a transportation company and whether all the buses they bought in 2011 have suddenly broke down when they budgeted over N382 Million for vehicle maintenance in 2012 and N480 million in 2011

2. Purchase of Scanners for 2011 budget is N224Million naira including a library scanner and public address system and Purchase of scanners for 2012 budget is over N150million for a public address system. The question I have for the presidency is why there are so many duplication.

All these outrageous expenses are repeated throughout the 2012 budget proposal by Jonathan(from the Presidency to the Federal Civil Service Commission)

Please my people are these cost below reasonable.(this was lifted directly from the 2012 budget)

PURCHASE OF UTILITY & OPERATIONAL VEHICLES FOR THE OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT: 3 UTILITY JEEPS @ N17,050,000 EACH = N51,150,000; II). 3 CONVOY SALOON CARS @ N6,328,625 EACH = 18,985,875; III). 10 POOL SALOON CARS @ N5,445,000 EACH = N54,450,000; IV). 3 HIACE BUSSES @ N5,445,000 EACH = N16,335,000; IV). 1 TRANSIT COASTER BUS (18 SEATER) @ N12,650,000 AND 1 CREW HIACE BUSE WITH (10-12 SEATERS) @ N5,445,000,

We cannot tightened our belts when he cannot do same.Jonathan Cut this outrageous expenditures and use the savings to fix our power and transport infrastructures.the sudsidy removal would further worsen the already tense security situation in the country.

Use your GSM phone or Digital camera to record illegal Police activities and post online to help international campaign.

The more video evidence we have the better.

Video recorded evidence will go around the world in a flash.

Video evidence will really broadcast the message loud and clear around the world.

in the whole time i've been visiting this site, this is the first time i've seen nigerians (north and south) come together on anything. interesting.

but i believe the move is the right one. goodluck jonathan has proved himself to be a strongman. i hope he stands firm.

what is fueling the anger is infact the impression (or is it concrete knowledge?) that corrupt politicans are milking nigeria dry. Make the fight about that, not about subsidy removal. Cus as at now, the rest of the world is really not that sympathetic to your cause.

Make the fight about corrupt politicians and you really have a movement the rest of the world can rally behind and support.

Right move? maybe not, of course they will say its beneficial, but will the subsidy funds be used rightly? <<< This I doubt with the whole of my heart.
