Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, has claimed that President Bola Tinubu is likely to face a public backlash over his “thoughtless petrol subsidy policy.”

Sowore claimed in a tweet on Sunday that “Tinubu was driven by impunity when he bragged that he would remove subsidy whether people protested or not.”

The announcement follows the confusion and controversy that surrounded the President’s recently announced elimination of fuel subsidies.

Sowore also alleged that the President had forgotten that many of the recent conflicts stemmed from revolts across the country, particularly his authority over Lagos.


“When @officialABAT was bragging that he will remove subsidy whether people protest or not, no matter how long the protest would last, he was speaking with a certainty driven by the impunity he’d practiced in Lagos since he captured Lagos in 1999.”

“However, he forgot that so many of the recent struggles that were rooted in recent revolts across Nigeria particularly targeted his feudal lordship over Lagos.”

“He’s about to face a national resistance that will clear his doubts regarding his recent thoughtless petrol subsidy policy. Sri Lanka is on my mind! #Revolutionnow,” he tweeted.
