Protesters Vow To Make Nigeria Ungovernable For Jonathan


A large number of youths under umbrella of Occupying Nigeria,ON, trooped out Friday in Kaduna to protest the sudden removal of subsidy on petrol by the President Goodluck Jonathan-led government.

The protesters carried various placards with different inscriptions such as ” We don’t need Badluck”, ” We are tired of slavery in our country”, “Now we know who is the Boko Haram from N65 to N145 naira ” and many others.

They vowed to make the country ungovernable if by Monday the federal government insists on maintaining the hike in price of petrol from N65 to over N140 per litre across the country.

The leaders of the group, President of Civil Rights Congress , CRC ,Comrade Shehu Sani and Barrister Tajudeen Ladoja told P.M.NEWS that President Jonathan and his economic advisers must revert to the N65 pump price or continue to face mass protests from the civil society groups and the Nigerian masses.

Some of the youths who also spoke to P.M.NEWS said the Jonathan-led government is insensitive to the yearning of the masses and must be stopped from carrying out what they described as “wicked act against the ordinary Nigerians”.

One of the leaders, Barrister Ladoja who further explained to P.M.NEWS why they had to move out to Lord Lugard Hall roundabout for the protest, said the group would join the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, to ground the country and make it ungovernable should the Federal Government refuse to revert to N65 pump price.
