    This is the height of wickedness. Jonathan is a disappointment. Am so ashamed that his greatest achievement as a president is to remove fuel subsidy. Why didn’t he cut down of his yearly food budget? Why didn’t he cut down on their allowances if he meant well for Nigerians. How does he expect the poor masses to survive? In the light of very poor standard of living, unemployment, lack of electricity supply, infact his regime has claimed more innocent lives than even the military regime.what was percieved as goodluck to Nigerians has suddenly become badluck. What a shame.

  4. This country is becoming unbearable for Lower class, they are already frustrated, becoming hopeless. Shall we continue to live like slaves in our fatherland? Everything has increased including house rents. There shall be war if the govt refuse to listen to the people yearnings.
