It is hardly news that Nigeria started the New Year with Fuel Subsidy Removal (FSR). Since January 2, 2012, the cost of 1 litre of petrol has soared from 65 naira to 150 naira.
This has prompted many to abandon their Mercedes Benzes in favour of their Leggedes Benzes and rusty old bicycles.
According to an undisclosed and unofficial source, this is hardly an inconvenience but one of the many benefits of FSR in that it will enable Nigerians lose those excess kilos gained from too much chicken and sodas during the Christmas holidays.
Not your idea of effective reduction? You could always take to the streets to march and wave placards. Depending on your level of fitness, you could also engage some black
boots belters in martial combat.
After all, we all know that those trendy Occupy Protests are just slang for outdoor group aerobics.
