Two days ago, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation said that there will be no contributions to the Federal Allocations to states for April and May, as a result of the shortfall of about N111 billion.
However, Reno Omokri took to Twitter to write that during Former President Goodluck Jonathan's tenure as the president of Nigeria, President Buhari joined the protest to stop him from putting an end to fuel subsidy. Now it has come back to haunt him as NNPC says that they will be no money for May allocation because of the fuel subsidy.
Recall that in 2012, they were a protest against former President Jonathan's regime over the removal of fuel subsidy.
The subsidy was removed on New year's day being the 1st of January, 2012. I can still remember vividly, some people who traveled with their families for the Christmas and New Year festivals, couldn't come back with them immediately because of the increase in the price of petrol which resulted to an increase in transportation.
The fuel price which was at N65 was increased to N141 overnight. Nigerians became angry and took to the streets, staging 'Occupy Nigeria' protests.
