Nigerians in New York and lovers of Nigeria on Tuesday joined in solidarity to protest against the fuel subsidy removal in Nigeria. Such protest is going on across the world. Here are some of the pictures from the protest:
Good! Let say bad governance that want to add to suffering of the Nigerians. SAY NO TO FUEL SUBSIDY,SAY NO TO NEO-COLONISATION !!!
Nigerians need a revolution, enough is enough for these politicians
I quite agree with you Anu, but my major area of concern is the ierabgaunnd implications fighting for this cause may entail. Everyone is aware of the 0- level security in the country at the moment. Just recently, the Boko Haram sect gave an ultimatum to southerners to relocate to their states or be consumed. The protest scheduled for friday across the country may just be the next location of another bomb explosion. I would rather we fight one cause at a time, wether against Boko Haram or against deregulation or for ASUU.Anyway, the removal of fuel subsidy has definately affected my purse as I have to pay twice what I paid last year for transportation daily.
Bless you all for standing up against injustice. The level of crime and corruption in Nigeria is beyond words. Greedy politicians watch the country go down in flames… Kidnapping, killing of innocent Nigerians etc etc now a daily routine. Thank God that Nigerians are

Nationwide strike? Waste of time, enregy, resources! Our government has proven they are not to be trusted by implementing the subsidy removal before it’s fixed execution date. What are the chances that they will revert the fuel price back to 65? As stated by a commenter, why is an oil producing country that sells crude purchasing finished goods and selling them to its citizens at the price countries that don’t have crude are buying? But I digress.I don’t think the nationwide strike will have more negative effects on the masses but the government leaves the masses with no other choice.My suggestion? Same as most- repair our refineries with the cash raised from slashing high public holders allowances and salaries, diversify the economy- agriculture, mining, labour, we have it, let’s use it), cut the Lamido crap about cashless economy- how many average nigerians can afford monthly internet access that’s steady? (Not those modem-crap internet connections that hang wen ur trying to access quickteller online).Above all there should be transparency in the Government (how this will be achieved is a perplexing puzzle that we haven’t figured out completely other than to say God will make it happen). What happened to the Freedom of Information Bill? Was it passed into law? Also the Judiciary system should be able to curb our leaders excesses. Public officers should NOT be above the law. So many issues, too little time Sigh.
We need you to come here in Los Angeles please. We are praying, We can do nothing without God. At the same thing, we must stand both in prayer and action. We must speak the tuth, for only that will set us free. Our people are suffering. God bless you all my fellow Nigerian in USA.
