The protest against removal of fuel subsidy in Ekiti State took another dimension as Catholic Bishop of Ekiti, Most Rev. Felix Femi Ajakaye, yesterday led labour leaders, students and others in Ado Ekiti to condemn the removal of oil subsidy.

The Bishop, who dressed in his cassock joined other protesters from Ajilosun area of Ado Ekiti, marched through the popular old garage in Ijigbo and stopped at Fajuyi Park, where the leaders of the various groups addressed the people.

Condemning President Goodluck Jonathan’s action on the oil subsidy removal, he asked why the president could not act swiftly on the security problem to find a lasting solution to the bombing going on in the North, but could be zealous in adding to people’s suffering on January 1.
