It's an uplifting experience seeing the youths of Nigeria standing up to be counted all over the world. I hope we can sustain this. #OccupyNigeria http://idovas.wordpress.com/2012/01/05/soon-we-shall-be-trekking-dr-reuben-abati/

it seems all the protests are happening everywhere except the most important place. ASO ROCK RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THE GOVERNMENT BUILDING!
but I'm sure they will just unleash the vicious and heartless police on innocent protesters.

well done girl you are current and i am glad that your blog, sahara reporters and nairaland are keeping us updated on the strike which is good. for bella naija blog she is not even saying anything about it and i wonder if she resides in nigeria?

also bring this news to your blog there were those who went to protest in abuja that the subsidy should be removed and then after a while they went to queue to collect 1000 naira is that not foolishness the money that can't even buy a plate of rice and that would be it.

it really shows the extent that jona would go to stop this strike 1st he used the nonsense court to say the strike is illegal then he used the hungry looking people to support the subsidy removal it is a real shame that jona does not want to listen to the voice of the poor masses and he would pay dearly for it.

please bring the news to your LIB readers and see how they were queing up to collect 1000 naira i was so angry when i saw the news.

I felt so proud when I saw the Picts of protesters in London & when I read about the #occupynigeria protest in NY! Nigerian is on the path of change, my fellow Nigerians we can make a change if we all stick together & throw out these animals in power who could care less about our lives. We demand a leader values our lives & well being May the souls of those who lost their lives in the Town Hall Meeting in Adamawa RIP. It is time for our people's lives to be worth something. Arise o' compatriots!

Miss Linda, abeg visit this site:www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-840258.0.html to get phone numbers of those in government fron GEJ to David Mark, Ike Ekweremadu, Laraban Maku, Diezani Madueke, Rotimi Amachi, VP's wife and many others in order for people to register their grieves as per subsidy removal. It was obtained by OccupyNigeria. Thanks.

Today, Nigerians have been awakened from their slumber! The days of slothful slumber and apathy are no more! Yes ....NO MORE!! Henceforth, let us demand ACCOUNTABILITY, let us demand RESPONSIBILITY in governance, Let us demand governmental SENSITIVITY towards the plight and the sufferings of the working-class! Let us demand TRUTH and TRANSPARENCY from our government. Let us demand JUSTICE, EQUITY AND FAIRNESS from the leadership! let us demand that our funds be handled with INTEGRITY, ASTUTENESS AND PRUDENCE! Let us demand RESULTS AND RETURNS from our investments. Let us demand an end to CORRUPTION and acute MALFEASANCE! Let us demand REPARATION AND RESTITUTION from both past and present leaders! Let us demand JUDICIAL REFORM and TRUE JUSTICE! Let us demand a CHANGE in our polity and REFORM in our governance! Let us demand a HIGHER STANDARD of CONDUCT and CHARACTER in the constitution of our leadership. Let us demand a COMMITMENT to HARD-WORK and LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE!! Let us demand CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, CITIZEN'S PRIVILEGES and EQUITABLE BENEFITS from a government that has taken its people for grated for too long! Let everyone that has hope for a better tomorrow arise and take up the fight to bring a CHANGE!!!

GEJ no try at all... boko haram dey kill people na fuel him dey think of...i don't know if he's aware of the issues which have to be tackled immediately...the fuel subsidy thing is secondary right now...there's no refinery functioning properly and he's removing subsidy on fuel...it's sad to know that the security in this country is not a priority...boko haram sect have not stopped with killings...all you can do is declare state of emergency...yet people are still dying those areas. nigeria's situation is sad at the moment...did someone tell him that by removing the subsidy boko haram will not be able to burn down buildings with fuel again???!!! GEJ should do what is necessary joor...i happy say i no vote am sef
