The spokesperson described subsidy removal as 'living and thriving corruption process'.According to Okei-Odumakin, 'We shall shun our places of work and engage in the mother-of-all rallies from Monday 9th until this 'shame of the Black race' begins to think and do things beyond the call of filthy lucre'.The CCSO's spokesperson reminded the masses that 'oil is the substance, subsidy removal is the excuse. The strike is the process and taking Nigeria back from hijackers is the ultimate destination'.The group also made some phone numbers available in case anyone needs free legal and medical aid while the strike is on, the line are: 08095652271, 07098001361, 07098001362, (text only 08056908017, 018429918 and 08033235822.
