President Jonathan

President Jonathan should be a good student of history. He should learn from the situation that led to the Arab spring. The West through IMF that are drumming support for his government on anti-peopleís policy will turn their backs against his government if Nigeria police kills more than a hundred people in the cause of the protest. In fact, they will call for his trial at the international criminal court of justice, for murdering his people. Nigerians had the constitutional right to protest by virtue of Section 40 of the Constitution of Nigeria.

Okonjo-Iweala is an American; she will leave Nigeria and return to Washington DC if war breaks out in Nigeria tomorrow. None of his family is here in Nigeria.

Today, the protracted demonstrations and condemnations, which follow the policy is enough signal that the move was wrong. There are enormous open source intelligence reports to support the imposition of the policy is not timely. Complacency, under-estimation, and over-confidence may have severe security implication. It may be the beginning of the long-awaited Nigerian Spring.

In the case of President Ali of Tunisia, he never had intelligence at all. That was why he never wasted time to run away for his dear life. When there is virtually no intelligence, you are at the mercy of events. The individual action of Mohamed Bouazizi, a young fruit seller sets a stage for the Arab spring, leading to regime change in Egypt and Libya. Who ever thought an action of an individual could trigger a revolution?

On the other hand, President Mubarak of Egypt relied much on the U.S. government to deliver him from his people. Of course, the U.S. government and the West has been his major backer for over three decades of his dictatorial regime. The West turned against him because they could read between lines based on the credible intelligence available to them that the Egyptians were determined to effect a change. Mubarak also under-estimated his people’s power in spite of all the intelligence reports locally; and even from his international allies, including the United States that his government would collapse. Today, Mubarak stands trial for corruption and murder of hundreds of protesters during the uprising.

Ghadafi under-estimated the mass movement of his people to the extent that he called them rats when a few people started the uprising in Bengazi. He was busy drinking black coffee in his mansion and it was too late for him because Tripoli fell to his disbelief. The citizen’s army later caught him and gave him a jungle justice. He died as a result of overconfidence and under-estimation.

Finally, President Jonathan should be warned not to under-estimate people’s power because there is anger in the land. Nigerians cannot sacrifice any longer. The Jonathan and its supporter club should be cautioned that Nigerians would resist vehemently all attempts to take away subsidy. In the face of reckless spending by the government on frivolous and useless programs coupled with the sustenance of a large retinue of jobless political apologist, executive touts and image launderers, it becomes difficult to accept the ruling government’s logic of inadequate government income to subsidize petroleum products for the common masses.

People who are benefitting from this Subsidy are the ones urging and mobilising people to protest.
Most Nigerians do not know that fuel is imported into the country,let the government use the fund to upgrade or build new refineries,and privatise them
So the prices will fall back and also jobs will be created.
As for revolution cause of Pet sub please go and sit down,How many people
have protested against the Boko Haram killing of the Christains in the north,

, it's possible that the drop could be fhuertr because those making applications that week could have been in contract the week before, and thus still able to get the credit.In any case, I'd look more toward actual sales when dealing with volume issues, in part because I don't think you can get local stats for loan applications, and in part because I'm not sure how accurate such stats are likely to be.
