1. Now, that Subsidy has been removed and the official pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS is N145 in the least at NNPC and other Government stations and above that in other filling stations owned by independent marketers, indiscriminate roaming about the street with your vehicles will reduce drastically, thus leading to less vagabondage, vagrancy and herdsmenism.
2. There will be less traffic jam in cosmopolitan and bustling cities like Lagos and Abuja. People will only take their private vehicles when it is absolutely necessary to do so.
3. More husbands will be responsible and have less fuel and saved, unused, unspent cash to chase side chics and choicelessly stay at home to spend quality time with their kids. It is time your children stopped arguing about Daddy’s complexion because they’ve never seen you by day time. Let this Subsidy pin your buttocks to your home sofa.

7. There is a golden opportunity to inflate the price of your goods and services under the Subsidy removal template. Even things not remotely connected to fuel. Tell your customers the fuel hike or Subsidy removal has affected the price of your locust beans. Let them argue with Kachikwu.
8. There is creation of several job opportunities with the Subsidy removal. They include Facebook journalists, unsolicited economic advisers and black market sellers…
9. Body fitness is enabled. With increase in fuel price, lazy Nigerians are forced to exercise by using their legs.
10. All you people abusing itinerant herdsmen, the joke is on you. Now, your trekking continues…
