Halt the plan to increase the price of Petrol

    1. Petition by

      We the People We the People

      Port Harcourt, Nigeria

The government has decided to increase the suffering of Nigerians once again. This time they have decided to increase the price of Petrol to N145 per litre. They say it is too expensive for them to provide petrol at N65, even when we are one of the biggest producers of oil in the world. Since 1978, the Government has increased the price of Fuel 18 times, they have always lied that it is meant to help the poor masses and build infrastructure. They simply steal the money; they don’t build any infrastructure, they don’t provide any help to the masses. Now they want to do it again, from N65 to N145 a litre. If they succeed, one cup of beans will cost N100, One cup of Rice will cost N120, Pure water will cost N25. The price of everything will go up. Don’t forget we depend on petrol to have light for our houses and businesses; we need petrol to pump water because public water supply does not exist. What does the government do with all the money? Why do they want to increase the suffering of the masses? The People say NO!

      It is a most insensitive policy further meant to pauperise the Nigerian masses and as such must be rejected and totally opposed. It is time to demonstrate to the Government that power belongs to God and the voice of the people is the voice of God. We must fight on for victory is sure

      I am signing this petition to halt the plans of the Nigerian Government and whosoever is involved to increasing the sufferings of the people. I stand against the increase of petrol price, I stand for the reduction of the price of petrol to a lesser amount, and all plans to meet what I stand for.
