Fuel subsidy removal: Nigerian Government agrees to revert to N65/liter under certain conditions

As a follow up to our previous publication, Fuel subsidy removal: Labour, FG agree to shift grounds to end protest, Vanguard confirms that the Nigerian government has agreed to revert to N65 per liter under certain conditions.

According to Vanguard:

At a marathon meeting attended by President Goodluck Jonathan, organised labour, the leadership of the Senate and the representatives of state governors, labour was given two options for the reinstatement of the N65 per litre price of petrol. The first option is to revert to the pre-New Year price on the condition that the subsidy regime would be completely removed in April.

The second option is to allow the N65 selling price of petrol and withdraw 80% of the subsidy in March, meaning that petrol would sell for N120 if the current price regime remains in force.

What do you think about these conditions?

Meanwhile, CNN Marketplace Africa will be running a special feature on Nigeria’s fuel subsidy protests beginning today and with repeat programming throughout the weekend. Check out the schedule in this post.

    And what's the difference between these two options? It further shows this govt either has no 'medulla oblongata' or is living in another planet!

    The question is not the removal of subsidy but what you have on ground to cushion the effect of this removal of subsidy, they are not allowed to do that until they can put enough facilities on ground and even then we the masses will judge their works first before giving the approval to remove the subsidy.

    Isn't that what democracy is all about?

    What sort of irresponsible govt is this? When no any subsidy had ever existed why should a govt be giving the masses condition 4 them 2 have room 2 continue their lavish and corrupt lifestyle! Please NLC/TUC no goyn back, N65 4ever and erradicate corruption.

    those aint good enough. we should be telling them the options. slash ur allowances, kill corruption, business men and women, lecturers, farmers go bak to ur passion and leave governance for those cut out for selfless governance

      You are right on point on that; the government should meet defined terms and conditions before talking about subsidy. And progress towards those targets (which includes improvement in electricity supply, transportation, employment generation, security, reduction in the cost of governance, and most of all fight against corruption) should be visible by all and sundry before commencing intention on subsidy removal.

  • sammiebrown

    (January 13, 2012 - 9:14 am)

    Those Cabals not only Lack Medulla Oblongata but they also lack brain matter…

    the options are almost the same with the 1st of January complete removal…

    If NLC agrees to this option, then the soul and effort of the lost soul is in vain.

    The issue of subsidy should be postpone indefinitely until Federal Government have put in place all machinery to reduce the cost of living of the Masses…FG should boost the functioning capacity of our refineries to atleast 90%, boost the transportation and the agricultural sector

      Thank you my dear brother. You 've just said it all. Let's have at least 3 functional refinaries before talking about Subsidy OR No Subsidy. The present government just want the masses to die out of hunger and make their pockets fatter. But it will never come to pass.

    Fuel Subsidy removal is good but you can’t put a cart before the horse and expect to move forward….U cant build a skyscraper on a surface ground

    without a corresponding foundation…..U cant build Africa's largest economy on corruption…It can never work….Remove corruption not subsidy…..

    Der are no guarantees tat d current funds will be invested,and people who stole will be prosecuted…as it as been in d past so it is…Lets start by prosecuting every one that stole regardless of wen and getting if not all,some of that funds back,and government can now talk about drastically cutting their expenses,both ministers,senators every one with an appointment or elected….that's is d right way and only way to go

I just want Mr. Jonathan to know that, we are not agree with his folish conditions, what we only know is petro must come back 2 his normal price 65N/liter. And U support 2 remove corruption not fuel subsidy, if not hmm!!! And our main hope on you NLC, you have 2 be trustworthy more especially in this situation.

    This is a divine set up to clean up the mess of Nigeria. The people must not let this timely opportunity to slip out of our hand. If not our unborn generation will never forgive us. No more talks until corruption and the so call canals are uprooted. when you push even a goat to the wall and it has where for it to run to, it will develop teeth and fight back.

  • nigeria youth

    (January 13, 2012 - 12:31 pm)

    the fuel price should come down to 41 naira per liter.It's our milk and honey that every Nigerian inherited naturally by birth right as a Nigeria.why will u this man called mr president will divert all this money u are looting from the so-called office?unnecessary allowance scam,unnecessary budget 2012 scam,unnecessary jumbo monument by all the federal aso rock family scam,how do you manage the countries account,what about the school fees,tax,forest reserves and gov housing and estate incomes?and all other properties owns by the gov that bring daily basses income how and where are the money from all this sources? primary schools which was built by white lords in around 1806 still in existing and you mr president will remove ur office furniture with billions of naira?u are complete criminal.get out from their corruptible human being with deadly smiles.

  • Sadiq

    (January 13, 2012 - 12:41 pm)

    The masses will no longer agree dat: a democratic govt, 2 b defined as d govt of d ppl, 4 d ppl, by d ppl. but rather it's d govt of it's self, 4 it's self nd by it's self. If not, why shld d govt leave d masses cryng, starving nd even dying 4 this subsidy removal. Pls FG use ur cerebrum nd find d lasting soln 4 dis calamity nd wipe out d tears of d masses. And pls NLC, never agree wt any condtn they addresses 2 u. D standard petrol price #65 should b 4ever. No going back.

    • Elijah Sylvester

      (January 14, 2012 - 9:55 pm)

      Mr. GEJ should resign immediately based on the following reasons 1.U have failed us,u cannot give us condition on we want u to govern us 2.U lied to us when u said kerosene will be 50 naira only 3.U promised us cement a bag but cement is N2000 4.U have refused to demystify government&make it less gainful to discourage corruption 5.To publish the audit report of KPMG on NNPC or porsecute the cabal 6.U have not been able to handle insecurity that has threatened the unity of this nation.

  • ALiyu M. Kallah

    I like to commend the effort of the NLC for a job weldone bet let NLC knw that they should nt agree with any condition ever, fuel price should be how it is before N65 per letter.

  • Elonna Aguh

    (January 13, 2012 - 1:35 pm)

    So why the protest in the first place? If removing subsidy by 80% in March will translate to better livelihood to Nigerians, then it will be a welcome development but not when our leaders are still living in affluence and the masses are impoverished.

    I want to suggest that going on strike is not the ultimate solution nor killing and destroying properties. The govt,for me, should be given chance to pursue this their plan to wipe out corruption in the petrol sector but if they fail to deliver what theypromised, we will protest for failing us.

    Now this people have the guts to give the poor masses condition of living, is either you die now or latter.they claim the government is spending excess now they want the masses to Pay for luxury spending.1.8trillion is budgeted for re-occurrent expenditure while 1.6 trillion is use to service the jumbo pay for president,vice president,106 senators,rep members and other executive arm of government. Mr president and his vice spend 1billion yearly on feeding yet they claim there is excess in government expenditure while they dont see anything wrong with what they spend.NLC/TUC should never agreed to such stupid conditions.

  • abdullahi saidu kant

    (January 13, 2012 - 4:02 pm)

    Before you removed d fuel subsidy u must ensure dat your refineries r working in atleast to satisfy local consumption. U must also made sure of good Railway network is functioning. In my opinion if these 2 basics r in place, d masses wouldn't mind or even remember subsidy ever exist.

    It's funny country where drama always take place in the system of government between our representative and executives while while directing by the judiciary. The true issue is as simple as this: masses are not supporting the decision, the choice is either reverting or impichment of the autocrats by the power of legislators vested upon them by democracy if they're not part of the plan (movie). May God destroy the bad leadship and punish the bad Leaders. "Anyi walkiya" if you want know more look 4 me i'm not afraid of my right!

  • ShiftNigeria

    (January 13, 2012 - 10:12 pm)

    Comrades, This is beyond GEJ.

    Who knows how much income Nigeria will make yearly . or say an estimate for 2012

    I am not an economist, but knows small maths , please put me through in Managment 001

    Estimated Income from 2.4 Million Barrels Crude Oil sold c/o NNPC at estimated $100 per barrel for 365 days =14 trillion Naira per annum (160usd to a naira)

    Income from 450,000B per day meant for Refineries For Local consumption c/o Cabal NNPC = 2 trillion Naira @ 100usd per barrel (thats what NNPC charges now through her agencies)

    other Crude Oil black markets for international market by Special Cabals (bunkering) etc ??????????? (am sure most of them are in government) seriously depleting the crude illegaly

    Income from FIRS 2011 (more than 1 trillion naira)

    Income from Customs 2011 (more than 1 trillion naira)

    Income from ports ????? assumed 1 trillion

    Inocome from others ???? assmed 2 trillion naira

    Assumed Income is 21 trillion Naira.

    2012 Nigeria Budget + 25% For NNPC andOthers Cabal's Egunje (Bloated Subsidy) = 6.2 trillion

    servicing of debts or even outright payments is 5.28 trillion naira

    Estimated SupplementaryBudget still Coming from FGN (2 Trillion)

    estimated Forex variation (1 trillion)

    all this is still less than 15 trillion naira

    we can still save 20billion usd in excess crude account sales

    they still reviewed price from 65naira and can not face the pocket persons to help in siphoning 1.3 trillion ..the annoying thing is they say we should bear the Special Fraud……… Haba (This is beyond Precidency)…am sure u know Our Oil is now Blood Diamond )>

    There must be an invisible hand in Nigeria (powered by the cabals (NNPC + Politicians + Nigerian Private Sector Collaborators and International Communities)

    This is beyond GEJ.

    Victory is going to be ours as we intensify to chart this path to accountability beyond Oil Subsidy Removal.

    May the blood of those who died in Lagos, kano etc not be in Vain

    those who call jonathan names are very stupid. why did you elect somebody you don't have confidence into such a great office?. the real fool is you. for your information my mother in south-south is not benefiting from fuel subsidy because with the subsidy in place we were buying petrol @ 90 naira. let govt use fuel subsidy money for health care &education.everybody go to ghana, south africa, usa europe etc. those countries paid the price once upon a time and today we talk about them. remember 'Ghana must go' that was a trying time for ghana but today they have uninterupted power supply because a man brought in policies that change the country. think twice before you fight for people who are really benefiting from these subsidy. the masses have not really in truth benefited from fuel because every year the price of good and services increase even withot increase in fuel prices.

      @mjb, you are the greatest fool in this case. voting a man in does not mean you know him totally or mean that you just have to take any shit from him.

      Nigerians are resisting this subsidy removal bcos all the adverts about building roads, hospitals etc are all hogwash. Na today?

      GEJ is adamant not for our benefit but for more money from which to cut & keep since he has only one term

      @mjb or whatever you call your name,to start with,. you mention Ghana has 24/hrs electricity, did your brother add that to his sure program? did he add the repair and reform of refineries? NO, why don't you wise and don;t be a fool and be sentimental about the truth. If your mother buy pms @90 when it is sold for 65, Ask, your governor, why you have to buy the product different from other states. so go fuck your self with your fucking sentiments.When Obasanjo tried people revolt and he quickly softpedals, because the people don';t want it.im sure you are a retired militant that is why you come here and comment rubbish.

    It's unfortunate that NLC/TUC could sit down with these animals to allow them roll out conditions to the masses.

    I ask, the subsidy that was removed from Kerosene and Diesel years ago, can we know what the money has been used for? The various facts and figures given to Nigerians by David Tom West and Pastor Tunde Bakare(yesterday at the rally in Ojota, Lagos) concerning this crude oil, why has the government not come out to counter them or will they say they are not aware of it. See, i am saddened by the fact that you are insincere to the people who voted you into power.

As a Doctor, if u receive a bleeding patient, u stop d bleeding b4 moving to other treatments. The Govt hv just stopped d bleedn & needs to now block other leakages, this oil is coming frm some ppl's backyard and yet they are not getting it at 65. Genuine technocrats will not fuel rally instead they profer solutions & stand for d truth. Some ppl hv personal interest & are using d rally to propergate their agenda. May God remove d scales in our eyes so dat we can see d future together. We need to choose btwn free oil & development. Those perfect countries started frm somewhere, this is not to say d govt is doing its best but together we can make things happen. A word is enough for d wise.

      @oolar, your analysis is very myopic. Since you prefer to bleed to death b4 first aid is brought to you, that's ur cup of tea.

      Majority of nigerians are tired of their lies, that's why we are resisting. They & their families end up being so rich buying mansions & shopping malls in choice areas while the majority are living from hand to mouth

    • otuba

      (January 14, 2012 - 2:31 pm)

      @oolar,you do have your own opinion,gvin govt a chance is not the issue,removing subsidy as they say is not even the problem,if our refeneries are working at full capacity, will they pay for importation? you and i know the answer is no,is theire sure program, did you read anything like power or reform in our refeneries? (No) is the answer,now tell me how do you expect this people to trust in this government as you have anticipated? the so call cabal will still important the pms, We are not blaming him for the rot in the government,but if you cannot face the real truth, why not resign, then we know that he could not do anything to curb corruption as a president. subsidy was removed from kerosene, and diesel. the common man use kerosene,where are the gains? what was it used for?…..if you do study government in school, define what leadership, you resolve the problem at hand.58 Million for newspaper, 200million for flowers, etc,don;t be blind to the truth,say it.

    Very shameful situation here! What are the numbers of cabals and the entire Nigerian populace, please President Jonathan give peace a chance! Remember you deceived us during your campaign and we equally voted for you for a better Nigerian. The pains, poverty in Nigeria very high! Remember we are living below $2 dollar! Why not conduct a pool and see peoples' opinion! Your generation unborn will suffer from this compounded suffering!

    Kudos to NLC/TUC for a gud fight. The pain we are passing through our leaders dont know, there children are not in this country why would they care much? Dont some of them have investment outside d country? Is the investment not done with our money?The money that belong to the masses is beign embezled by our so called callous and notorious learders, now they are claiming to show concern for us, how do we beleive them? We are no more fools. NLC dont compromise.

    This is nothing but wickedness. Transportation, food stuff's price is now almost double.. Mr. President actually forget that pple put him dia, this is in no difference to regim of dictatorship….Anyway on my side Jonathan and his party are totally finished, because i haven't seen anything good come from their side..

    I do believe that Refurbishment of our refineries should be the first priority, but its other way round.. this is too bad, o baaad gannn!!!!

    This is no different than before. Even giving options is somewhat ridiculous. Goodluck needs to be put in jail for causing all this, and the people of Nigeria need to fight a little harder than what they are doing now. This is the best time to demand and ask for a better economy and state. Why do we keep putting all this idiot presidents that corrupt our land and hurt our people on the high chair.

    i am very disapointed in dis so called badluck jonathan wit is stupid ideology, imagine its absurd 4 a president of a country to put its citizen on a condition b4 rendering assistance for dem,meanwhile d petrol is not one person resources, its our resources. i w appeal to NLC not to allow dis condition bcos its almost dsame as pre new year price. masses are crying dey are livin in hardship wat w nid is to revert d price to 65 naira per litre & remove corruption inorder to boost our economy. my advise to mr badluck ebele is dat he shud resign if he cant revert d price of d fuel to odd price becos wat happen to general sanni abacha can stil visit him, D GOD OF GOD IS STIL DER so try 2 comprehend wit wat pple saying.

    u av all spoken wel,i c no reason y jonathan is so adamant abt dis fuel matter,am sure thr is sumtin behind it dat he is nt telling us,let NLC tel him to mk use of anoda means,y dis fuel?let him use agriculture or anyoda.am sure our sweats wil ask him n mk him suffer.
