Today has been largely successful, peaceful and purposeful in mass action! A few skirmishes were noticed in Benin and Kaduna as some  misguided miscreants wanted to hijack the struggle for their own selfish needs. Benin and  Kaduna protest will be indoor for now. 

Everywhere else in Nigeria, people  demonstrated without violence. Lagos led as usual with Fela music blaring at Gani Fawehinmi gardens in Ojota.  People occupied Falomo roundabout. Corporate executives, youth, students, artisans, market-women. Pat Utomi was there amongst other people. The atmosphere was almost festival-like! Ibadan was calm. Akure was peaceful.

Abuja and Port Harcourt were calm in protest. Where were you?

We  are still resolute and  determined to push out corruption and waste from Nigeria. If  we start that process today, we can be sure of a future assured! Do not be afraid or tired. We must make this count.

If you are not protesting, then you should be doing this:

Let us see how well your prayers will be answered!

I aint hear of any shooting or killing today...yet! It's like our uniform men cautioned themselves more today. Though there was reported cases of rioting this morning at Ogba area, of the Area-G police command!!
However, I see more Nigerians supporting and understanding the essence of the protest.

Please broadcast -

Petroleum Marketers are fighting back by exposing some of the subsidy deals.

They say Nigeria must know that Haruna Momoh the MD of PPMC and Deziani Allison Madueke Minister for Petroleum has been demanding and pocketing N50 per litre of Kero and petrol produced by local Refineries since Jan 2011 till date. The reason they gave to marketers is that it was marketers contribution to Jonathan's election, but it has continued even after the elections.

That the govt should probe Nezor SA and Tridax SA two companies owned by the Peroleum Minister run by her younger brother. These two companies in the last 16 months of her tenure have from nowhere become one of the few companies lifting crude oil and one of the largest beneficiary of the subsidy.

The marketers want Nigeria to probe the new list of briefcase companies now lifting crude oil because they paid minimum of $1 million to Momoh and Deziani.
