Femi Falana, SAN on the recent fuel price hike: "The fuel price increase negates the principles of the Nigerian constitution. President Buhari should live up to his responsibility. The increase in fuel price is illegal and should be annulled.
The hike will increase the tempo of anger, frustration and desperation of Nigerians who are daily being pushed to the extreme of tolerance of the government's extremist socio-economic programmes
Nigerians have been stretched beyond their reasonable elastic limit with the ceaseless imposition of policies that push the masses to cliff edge of livelihood.

The Federal Government has taken yet another illegal decision. Nigerians are not expected to obey illegal orders.

BREAKING: We call on @NigBarAssoc to immediately withdraw the invitation of ex-President Obasanjo, for reportedly calling Justice MB Idris "stupid and ignorant", after the judge ruled that details on the spending of recovered stolen public funds since 1999 be widely published.
Obasanjo should apologise to the highly respected judge, who is now at the Court of Appeal, and to Nigerians. He should also publicly support the enforcement of the judgment and call on President Buhari to implement it.
Following the judgment in 2016, Obasanjo reportedly said, “They said the money recovered from Abacha, I should account for it. What stupidity! The man [Justice Idris] who asked for it, the man who gave the judgement or who answered them are all stupid.”
