Union threatens oil production over Nigeria strike


Nigeria, home to more than 160 million people, has been paralyzed by a national strike that began Monday after the country's government abandoned subsidies that kept domestic gasoline prices low. Overnight, prices at the pump more than doubled, from $1.70 per gallon (45 cents per liter) to at least $3.50 per gallon (94 cents per liter). The costs of food and transportation also doubled.

Politicians hold the keys to national treasuries, thus come the rub for those sovereign citizens in Nigeria. Oil and Gas revenues flowing into their communed held wealth national treasuries was attacked by IMF Chief Christine Lagarde that met Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan and praised the country’s government for its economic reform plans.

So now the whole idea of causing this strike is all about economic reform plans.
So what does that mean to us in the USA?

I submit it is far past time for us to have our own WAKE UP CALL. Those that control BIG OIL and BIG BANKS are the BEASTS within and they are all in a collision to bring a downfall of the worlds populations.

The Nigeria government just remove of fuel subsidy without negotiating with people & considering the hardship on Nigerians people. They had another meeting with the Nigeia labour congres (NLC) but the president say he would reduce it to 120 naira per litre of cos' we can't accept that he just have to reduce it to 65 naira per litre to stop this strike. The Nigeria government don't care about the welfare of the country because i don't know how a president of a country can be using 1 billion naira for feeding per year. God help us.
