Nigerians started 2012 with a burden gift from the President, Goodluck Jonathan, who removed subsidy on fuel and increased the pump price from #65 - #141.
The topic was hot and timely; news on television, radio, online, group discussions were all centered on the same topic – fuel subsidy removal.
While the whole world awoke on January 1st in the New Year with hope for 2012, Nigerians were hit with a shock by the government.
Initially it was as though the proposed strike would not take place, but with time people gathered in groups discussing the possibility of the strike.
The recent fuel hike in Nigeria from #65 - #141 has been challenged nationwide by Nigerians, because they believe it would further impoverish an average Nigerians.
