There seems to be a lot of intelligent people on Nairaland and ask them to contest for elective post to fix their country and they cannot do that.

Subsidy removal is a good thing but people misunderstood what it meant and thats why there is no protest in south east and south south.

[size=15pt]I just came back from Benin Yesterday. There is no protest anywhere. You shouldnt spread lies just to push your point. There is nothing wrong with protesting but what you are posting are lies. There was no protest in Benin. Benin is as peaceful as anything. Most people in the south south are not interested in protesting against removal of subsidy. They are only interested in a split of the country![/size]

@dmainboss,

Why wouldn't you just use a Visual Aid  If necessary to see what the Op posted ? With what I see up here with my two eyes, he did not say this protest  took place yesterday. It happened today, not yesterday!

Please read again!.

Your obvious lies about Benin aside. .


When will you and your goons propose a split of the country? when GEJ leaves power?

Or when amnesty money finally runs out?




Your post from yesterday:

dmainboss:

I Just spoke to a friend in PH this morning and asked him how the subsidy protest is going and he laughed and said, it is the poor guys in Lagos that are protesting. He said GEJ has empowered boys in ND and they dont have time for protest. He said the guy that used to paint his office and house told him he no longer has time for that because he now collects 150k monthly amnesty pay. He just came back from SA for training. Boys are smiling in Niger Delta and they dont have time for any yeye protest. It is time for the south west to fight it out. When Ojukwu was shouting his voice hoax over 40 years ago, they said he was a f00l. Some still come here and insult him.

Let them fight it out. It is their turn now. This is not the fight of the SE or SS. We are watching. When we see the terrain is clear, we will act. No more free beer. That era is gone. Boys are driving around with big machines in PH. No time for yeye protest.

Re: Pictures Of Protest In Benin City South-south by yd849ja: 5:00pm On Jan 05, 2012
For all you proponents of removal of fuel subsidy that thinks even at the old price of N65, Investors in refineries can not make profit until government increases the price to N141. Please do a little reading below about the process of fuel refining and costing at the pump in America. While you are at it do have in mind that production in Nigeria has to be cheaper than the US, also consider the TAX on price in America, meaning that if tax is removed as it is right now Nigeria pricing would even be more than that of the US (1ltr = $0.87 tax inclusive in the US, N141 in Nigeria without tax). So I see no reason why any reasonable business man would not make profit even if they want to refine at the old price.    

Culled from How stuffs works USA http://auto.howstuffworks.com/fuel-efficiency/fuel-consumption/gas-price1.htm

This is what the average breakdown looked like in April 2011. Let's look at those components in more detail.

Crude oil - The biggest portion of the cost of gas goes to the crude-oil suppliers. This is determined by the world's oil-exporting nations, particularly the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which you will learn more about in the next section. The amount of crude oil these countries produce determines the price of a barrel of oil. Crude-oil prices averaged around $35 per barrel (1 barrel = 42 gallons or 158.99 L) in 2004. And, after Hurricane Katrina, some prices were almost double that. In April 2008, crude-oil prices averaged around $104.74 per barrel. During that month, the price of oil reached a record price of almost $120 a barrel [source: DOE]. By May 16, prices had topped $117 per barrel [source: MarketWatch]. On May 22, markets in New York and London reported prices past $135 per barreland, and on July 11, oil hit an all-time high of $147 [source: Forbes, New York Sun]. Analysts speculated that everything from investment in oil futures to increasing demand from countries like India and China contributed to the spike in price.

Sometimes, gas prices go up even though there is plenty of crude oil on the market. It depends on what kind of oil it is. Oil can be classified as heavy or light, and as sweet or sour (no one actually tastes the oil, that's just what they call it). Light, sweet crude is easier and cheaper to refine, but supplies have been running low. There's plenty of heavy, sour crude available in the world, but refineries, particularly those in the U.S., have to undergo costly retooling to handle it.

Refining costs - The cost of refining diesel fuel can be considerably higher than the price of refining regular gasoline. To learn more about oil refining, read How Oil Refining Works.
Distribution and marketing - Crude oil is transported to refineries, and gasoline is shipped from the refineries to distribution points and then to gas stations. The price of transportation is passed along to the consumer. Marketing the brand of the oil company is also added into the cost of the gasoline you buy.
Taxes - Federal and state governments each place excise taxes on gasoline. There may also be some additional taxes, such as applicable state sales taxes, gross receipts taxes, oil inspection fees, underground storage tank fees and other miscellaneous environmental fees. Add that to the state excise taxes, and it can average 27.4 cents. It could be worse. In Europe, gas prices are far higher than in America because taxes on gas are much higher.
Station markup - Of course some of the money you spend at the pump does go to the service station. While some consumers blame high prices on station markup, service stations typically add on a few cents per gallon. There's no set standard for how much gas stations add on to the price. Some may add just a couple of cents, while others may add as much as a dime or more. However, some states have markup laws prohibiting stations from charging less than a certain percentage over invoice from the wholesaler. These laws are designed to protect small, individually-owned gas stations from being driven out of business by large chains that can afford to slash prices at select locations.

Gas prices also vary from state to state for several reasons. Taxes are probably the biggest factor in the different prices around the country. Additionally, competition among local gas stations can drive prices down. Distance from the oil refineries can also affect prices -- stations closer to the Gulf of Mexico, where many oil refineries are located, have lower gas prices due to lower transportation costs. There are also some regional factors that can affect prices.

World events, wars and weather can also raise prices. Anything that affects any part of the process, from the moment the oil is drilled, through refining and distribution to your car will result in a change in price. Military conflicts in parts of the world with lots of oil supplies can make it difficult for oil companies to drill and ship crude oil. Hurricanes have damaged offshore drilling platforms, coastal refineries and shipping ports that receive oil tankers. If a tanker itself is lost or damaged, or leaks its oil into the ocean, that will put a dent in the market as well.

Next, we'll look at why it's more expensive to buy gas in Milwaukee, Wis., than in many other parts of the United States.­

You are too dishonest. Oshimole is in full support of fuel subsidy removal so ACn is definitely not going to protest. Who will then protest and go as far as sponsoring the use of a coffin and buying one? Is it civill society groups? because I cant see any of them in your pics. Even if you are right for fighting against fuel subsidy removal, you shouldnt spread false information to butress your point. We can only join real struggle, not lies like yours. It is the likes of you that are spreading rumours and propaganda that iweala wants to resign and Abati has resigned and all that crap. You are not helping the fight. You are destroying it.
