The Rivers State Government today Tuesday January 10th introduced a N4 subsidy on fuel sold in the state. The govt said it in a broadcast that it had reached an agreement with independent marketers to cut the price from N141 to N137. The governor, Rotimi Amaechi, said his government will pay the N4 price difference.
*Linda shakes head* So do we commend him now or what?
These our leaders don’t seem to understand the pains of the masses. FYI, anyone who can pay 137, can pay 141, get that right! It makes no difference, it doesn’t make life easier. Cost of living has doubled…N4, will not reverse it. Someone told me today, I don’t know what this subsidy means, all I know is that I don’t want to buy a bag of pure water for N200, (it used to be N80) and I don’t want to be spending N700 to go to work everyday, (she used to spend N300). How much do you earn, how much are you going to spend to survive? Please our leaders, have mercy on us, biko!
