A group, the Joint Action Front (JAF), has said it is mobilising Nigerians for mass action against the recent hike of the petrol pump price and electricity tariff.‎

Chairperson of JAF, Dr. Dipo Fashina, and the secretary, Comrade Abiodun Aremu, ‎said Wednesday, September 16, has been fixed for the commencement of the mass action.‎

According to them, protests will be stage across the country to press home the demand for immediate and unconditional reversal of the hike in petrol price from the N160 to the N86.50.‎

Addressing journalists on the proposed mass actions, Aremu said, “We call on Nigerian working people, the oppressed poor masses, students, traders, professionals, women, unemployed youth, farmers, artisans, Muslims, Christians and faith based organisations to prepare to use mass actions to reject, resist and defeat the latest imposition of hardships by the deceptive and anti-poor people Buhari regime on Nigerians, which if not resisted and defeated, would compound the miserable existence of the vast majority of Nigerians, who are still groaning with the attacks of the coronavirus pandemic.‎

“Nigerians across the country should hold mass meetings and sensitisation rallies to reject the latest hikes and to struggle to defeat it, preparatory to the commencement of mass actions, which we agreed should commence Wednesday, September 16, 2020.”‎

“‎We condemn and reject the latest wicked increases in prices of fuel, electricity tariffs and value added tax (VAT), and contended that it is a product of the capitalist neoliberal policies of Privatisation and Deregulation,” he added. ‎
