CNPP cautions JOnathan over fuel subsidy removal

24 October 2011, Sweetcrude, Abuja- On his part, General Secretary of the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP), Willy Ezugwu said the honourable way out for President Jonathan is to hands off the removal and focus on how to break the subsidy cartel, insisting that the withdrawal will be to the detriment of the masses.

His words: “We are not surprised that the President who laid claim to having risen to the top from poor background has joined the oppressing elite by planning to visit hardship on the people he promised to cater for. What is however surprising is that it is too early in the day for him to abandon the people in favour of the rich”.
