    Democracy is a government of the people, by the people and for the people. So if the people say no to fuel subsidy removal, the government should heed that and reverse their decision.

    Nigeria is not practicing a democratic government. That democracy is government of the people, for the people and by the peoeple . Now democracy is a government for the government and those in ppower.
