House of Reps ask Jonathan to suspend the removal of fuel subsidy

At a sitting this afternoon and shown live on local TV, members of the House of Representatives, while discussing the removal of subsidy, the 2012 budget and the state of emergency in some states, passed a motion asking the executive arm of Government to suspend the removal of fuel subsidy and allow for wider consultation.

The House also plan to set up a committee that will interface with labour while the strike is ongoing.

The Rep members said they heard about the subsidy removal in the pages of the newspaper like the rest of us. They claim they were not consulted before the action was taken by GEJ and co.

And why are these agbada people making noise after the fact?? This is not about asking oh better INSTRUCT him

Alicia says... said...

AHHHHHHHH see the cat coming out of the bag! they better suspend that shit. how can they implement such without any warning or without providing AT LEAST constant electricity so people wont have to worry about fueling their gens or whatever?? GEJ and co are clueless as ever. improve the road networks, transportation, electricity, and tackle Boko Haram before deciding to take such an action. remember constant electricity by April of 2011? what happened to that? I wonder..
What direction is Nigeria heading to?? Naija, which way nau??

What has the farking (2) arms of legislative houses done for us in 13yrs aside knocking done OBJ's third term's bid? Nigerian govt. are simply clueless when it comes to reaching a compromise. Lets give GEJ a chance with the subsidy removal for goodness sake. WTF is all this buh ha ha for when nothing will change regarding the subsidy removal. As for you Linda.... Learn a bit more about economy other than writing dross for politics sake. SMH

These guys are str8 up lying... I am not in the House of Reps, and even I knew it was going to be suspended on January 1st...

Afterall, if the budget for 2012 had N0 allocated for fuel subsidy, and 2012 started on January 1st, how did they expect the subsidy to remain? SMH

They did not discuss their jumbo pay. And if GEJ implimented the hike in fuel prices without the senate tell me what they are doing in office. Barawo all of them.

Rep members, I am so sorry for you all. You think you are talking to babies and deceiving fools right. Think well cos we are far from being deceived. Nonsense and ingredient rep members. Rep members, senate, legislatures,executive members of the FRN, you are all thieves, barawos, oles, crooks of the first order. Trying to play on our intelligence ain't cool.

People who say the whole thing was a surprise, you must have been asleep for the last 6-7 months...

Heck, it was on this same blog that Linda revealed that the 2012 budget had NO money allocated for fuel subsidy in 2012.

So what were people expecting come January 1st, a country that has no money allocated for fuel subsidy would still have fuel subsidized?

GEJ is very brave and a listening president.
Haven't every stupid president we got in the past try 2 fix things but end up doing nothing? If he sits there and keep saying this road,that school, that hospital bla bla bla its still all of you dat will call him a weak len.
I respect n earnestly pray 4 him daily.
Its d whole money we generate dat is used 2 pay 4 d subsidy.
Most of us don't even understand what's happening, we ® just joining d crowd n insulting ourselves.

This so called reps ® worse dan d devil. Becos of d 25% they ® now having am emergency session. 3-| ‎​☀☀◦°˚mscheeeeew˚◦◦☀☀>:/!
Where were they since? Why will dey stand up one day after d president listened 2 d people.
Fact is its a lasting solution GEJ is providing to a problem lasting over 50years.

GEJ is fighting d super rich of This country 4 d interest us.
They "adenuga's" ® d ones instigating and Funding d protest.

The masses are blindly supporting d NLC n TUC pretenders who ® only after their selves.

We want positive change, we see it n we are crying? GEJ could as well sit down n say its business as usual.

house of rep support suspension of fuel susbisidy? that news?... these pple are d major reason we are in this messs in d 1st place. they are d faceless cabals. it may be important to kno dat at dis same mitin where they asked d FG 2 suspend d susbsidy removal, they rejected d motion to institute an EFCC probing of the subsidy defaulters.
Nigerians should wake up n smell d coffee... these are d guys backing even the NLC guys? why? because they are the beneficiaries of fuel susbisidies that they refused to bring in2 their own country all 4 selfish gains
this in actual fact is the fight of d ngozi iwealas etc of our time
even tho fuel subsidy might be a good way 4ward but right now i rily cant trust d govt 2 do sumtin substancial cos of the magnitude of corruption that is...

Niger Delta we must stand to protect our oil from the nameless cabals. If the North and Co likes, it can continue protesting. I really WISH the South and South-East separate from Nigeria very soon.

@iOmoge, u've said it all. A lot of ppl just joined the band wagon without understanding the full implications of the policy. Ppl like Linda, i expect to do research & educate ppl r trying to b politically correct to increase followers. A lot of ppl will experience a paradigm shift when all is said & done.
