House of Reps ask Jonathan to suspend the removal of fuel subsidy

At a sitting this afternoon and shown live on local TV, members of the House of Representatives, while discussing the removal of subsidy, the 2012 budget and the state of emergency in some states, passed a motion asking the executive arm of Government to suspend the removal of fuel subsidy and allow for wider consultation.

The House also plan to set up a committee that will interface with labour while the strike is ongoing.

The Rep members said they heard about the subsidy removal in the pages of the newspaper like the rest of us. They claim they were not consulted before the action was taken by GEJ and co.
