The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has called on the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC), businessmen and women, and all Nigerian students to march in protest of President Bola Tinubu’s recent increase in fuel prices.

The organisation claimed it is time to liberate Nigerians from oppressors in a statement published on Wednesday in Owerri, which was jointly approved by President General Goodluck Ibem and the publicity secretary, Okey Nwaoru.

The organisation urged Nigerians to take to the streets of all 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja, to demand a restoration to the original pump price of N198 per litre.

COSEYL voiced dissatisfaction with the latest gasoline price increase from N520 to N617, calling it “gross insensitivity and wickedness of the highest order.”

They said that while Nigerians were still struggling to make ends meet with the previous price of N520, President Tinubu raised the price of petrol to N617 in less than two months in office. They condemned the behaviour, saying that “a few people in Aso Rock are eating and enjoying themselves while the majority of Nigerian citizens suffer and die in abject poverty in the midst of plenty and abundant natural mineral resources.”
