In a resounding display of dissent, the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has resolutely voiced their opposition to the recent surge in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), more commonly known as petrol. In a fervent call to action, COSEYL has rallied for a nationwide protest, seeking to galvanize the masses and amplify their collective discontent.
In a stunning turn of events, a call has been made in response to the sudden and significant surge in fuel prices across the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, and various regions of the nation. The call comes amidst growing concerns and mounting pressure surrounding the recent spike, which has seen prices soar from N537 to an astonishing N620. This development has undoubtedly captured the attention of citizens and stakeholders alike, prompting a response that seeks to address the implications and ramifications of this unprecedented escalation.
In a press release issued on Wednesday, the President General of the Coalition of Southeast Youth Leaders (COSEYL), Goodluck Ibem, strongly condemned what he deemed as a flagrant display of malevolence by the governing authorities. Ibem pointedly highlighted the prevailing adversities faced by the Nigerian populace in light of the recent elimination of fuel subsidies.
The collective expressed deep concern over the prevailing circumstances wherein Nigerian citizens, who are already grappling with economic challenges, find themselves contending with the burdensome burden of a previous fuel price of N520. Astonishingly, within a mere two months of assuming office, President Tinubu has seen fit to elevate the price of fuel to a staggering N617 in certain regions.
The declaration has implored all citizens of Nigeria, with a particular emphasis on the younger generation, to assemble in large numbers and partake in a demonstration against the malevolent and unjust actions imposed upon the Nigerian populace by the current administration. The Nigerian populace finds itself increasingly deprived of the fundamental right to breathe freely within the confines of their own nation.
In a resolute call to action, the urgency to emancipate Nigeria from the clutches of her oppressors reverberates through the collective consciousness. In a resolute call to action, the impassioned plea echoes through the Nigerian landscape. The fervent desire to reclaim a bygone era, where the fuel price stood at a steadfast N198 per litre, reverberates in the hearts of the people. The proposed course of action? A resolute march, spanning the length and breadth of the nation, encompassing all 36 states, alongside the esteemed Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The objective? To exert unyielding pressure until the desired outcome of reversing the fuel price is achieved.
