Fuel Subsidy Removal: El Rufai, Dino Melaye, NBA, others are hypocrites – Nigerians


24 hours after the official pump price of petrol is hiked to N145 per litre, Nigerians have labeled those at the vanguard of the famous ‘Occupy Nigeria’ protests that greeted former President Goodluck Jonathan’s attempt to remove petrol subsidy in 2012 hypocrites.

The Occupy Nigeria protest was a socio-political movement that began in Nigeria on Monday, 2 January 2012 in response to the fuel subsidy removal by President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday, 1 January 2012. Protests took place across the country, including in the cities of Kano, Ojota (part of metropolitan Lagos), Abuja, and at the Nigerian High Commission in London. The use of social media services such as Twitter and Facebook were prominent during the protests.

Prominent activists that championed the protests in Lagos where the largest crowd was recorded for days included Senator Dino Melaye, Pastor Tunde Bakare, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, and many more.
