The revolt against #OccupyNigeria: @Chukudebelu’s timeline cries out against hypocrisy

An enormous barrage of reactions has trailed the announcement of the removal of subsidy by the Federal Government.

On January 1, 2012, the administration of Goodluck Jonathan announced the removal of fuel subsidy for the first time.

Subsequent to the announcement, the whole country cried foul and took to the streets in an #OccupyNaija protest which saw hundreds of millions of Nigerians demanding that the government returned the removed subsidy.

The government, incapacitated by the sheer volume of the protesters caved in and granted the masses their wishes.

Now, in 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has called off the subsidy regime despite the knowledge of the attendant untold hardship and suffering it would effect on the masses.

In a series of tweets, @cchukudebelu, who is known for influential Twitter commentary, accuses the #OccupyNaija protesters of hypocrisy, explaining that the removal of subsidy by Goodluck’s administration was the best policy for the country in 2012 but the protesters for illogical reasons chose to go against it.

See his tweets below, and they capture the sentiments of those who see hypocrisy everywhere today.

Anyone disagree?
