While addressing the media in Abuja, Sylva also explained that the deregulation was inevitable, citing the fact that crude oil prices have lowered, the pandemic and curtailing production output by OPEC, which has constrained government revenue.

Meanwhile, efforts are being made to find sustainable alternatives for petrol as well as continuing to monitor prices to ensure the prices are fair.

10,000 Protesters Defy Thai Crackdown After Emergency Decree

Published

Thai protesters

10,000 Thai protesters gathered Thursday in defiance of a sweeping crackdown after authorities moved to crush months of pro-democracy demonstrations by imposing emergency powers and rounding up leading activists.

Protesters chanted “Prayut get out!” and “free our friends!” as they confronted police at Ratchaprasong, a busy junction in central Bangkok, despite a new decree that bans gatherings of more than four people — aimed at quelling student-led demonstrations.

The Government of Prime minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha, a former army chief who initially took power in a 2014 coup, has been the target of the protesters, but they have also taken aim at Thailand’s unassailable monarchy.

As night fell, Thai protesters waved their lit-up mobile phones in the air.

Thousands sat on plastic sheets on the road snacking on street food while scores more watched from overhead walkways. Many said they would return Friday evening.

After the emergency measures were announced early Thursday, riot police dispersed hundreds of protesters who camped overnight outside the prime minister’s office.
