The stage is set for an increase in fuel prices. Sadly,the government is acting out the same script it has always done but with a tweak- fuel unofficially sells for N110 in most filling stations across the country, yet  Nigerians buy with token protests.  If I were in government rather than announce a hike, I will retain the status quo because an official increase would lead to nation-wide strikes. The politics of fuel  subsidy and punishing Nigerians for the government's incompetence and enrichment of a few without appropriate palliative measures to cushion to removal of subsidy leads us back to where we were in January 2012.
