He continued: “We listened gleefully to the speech of the president and it wasn’t clear if the subsidy would be removed or not. However, we have gotten from reliable sources that the federal government of Nigeria has planned to remove Subsidy from petrol products towards end of January or February.*

“Let it be on record that the federal government of Nigeria has not put forth any superior logical argument about the advantages of removing the longed acclaimed subsidy, as, it has never reflected on the lives of an average Nigerian, rather than suffering, pains, insecurity and stress,” he said.

According to the statement, “it is sacrosanct to inform the general public that we will shut down Nigeria the moment the federal government announces any hike in petroleum product. The CSOs in Delta State will meet on Friday to take a decision on this but I can say conveniently and confidentially say that we will shut the economy down, and, Delta state will never play a second fiddle to the struggle.”
