Also, leaders of JAF will meet in Lagos today to review the situation, but have resolved to continue the action tomorrow. Mr. Abiodun Aremu, JAF Secretary, said the meeting would take place at 2 pm to plan how to re-strategise the protest and mass action to force government to reverse the hike in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff.
