The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has described the plan by the Federal Government to remove fuel subsidy on fuel as not only scandalous, but an attempt to set the country on fire.

The University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State chapter’s chairman, Abdussobur Olayiwola Salaam addressing journalists, canvassed a mass action to protest President Goodluck Jonathan’s action, which he described as, “the height of economic rascality.” The planned removal, according to him was a further attempt by the government to emasculate the masses to the advantage of the few rich elite in the society.
His words: “It is anti-people because it will add more to the prevailing hardship rampaging the land. We reject it in totality and shall the millions in our ranks because it is only reflective of the greed of our leaders.”

“Our leaders deal with us with rapacious prebendalism turning our roads into death-traps, our educational institutions into havens of cultism and violence, our hospitals into mortuaries and with abysmal failure in almost every facet of our national lives.

The SSANU leader also lamented that government at all levels were busy chasing shadows instead of facing the serious challenges of building a strong, egalitarian economically viable and politically stabled country.

As part of activities marking the Association’s week, slated for Wednesday, Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi will be honoured with the award of Icon of Democracy, while Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin will receive the award of Amazon of Democracy with Promise Adewusi and Rockcity 101.9 FM being honoured with the awards of Icon and Media of Democracy respectively.
