    “Within ourselves, we know Jonathan is eminently incapable of transforming Nigeria”. I said this to a colleague last April and it has turned prophetic. What a way to be vindicated!

    My proposal is that the withdrawal should be done over a three year period. Increase it to =N=85 now, invest the money realised in the power sector, people see the benefits, then at the end of next year move it to =N=100, invest again and the cycle continues. That is a lot better than this instant death they have inflicted on us.

    While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just wish people will start adding a dash of reasoning to that their opinion. Jimoh how exactly do u know GEJ is incapable o transforming Nigeria, o and before him, wat exactly did others do to transform naija for better? Granted he waited too long before addressing Boko Haram's issue and everyone has difference of opinion as regard to fuel subsidy, but my dear did naija get like this over night o were u under the impression h was magician when he was elected? Anon 9:49am makes more sense waterer the case may b let them do something towards reducing fuel price it's as simple as that. We had presidents that single handedly drained Nigeria and during their tenure, people were too afraid to even say their names. My people it's high time we understand that reformation rarely happen overnight and it's never without bloodshed. Powerful people fighting GEJ behind doors know exactly wat they are fighting for. Ever wondered why since we've been so focused about this fuel subsidy issue wh Boko Haram have been quiet? Think people think!

    Thank u gej. Glad to see u have eyes and ears and you are using them, unlike those bastard northern rulers we have had in the past who just made rules and changes w/out the masses being able to contest or protest. Now we expect favourable answers. Of course u may not reverse your decision 100% but at least we shld be able to meet half way where people will not be completely impoverished to make ends meet. To all who protested or are still protesting, una do well.
