shallow thinkers

I don't know which part of Nigeria you come from but would like to educate you. The SW people are the most refined and intellectually productive. I would like you to educate me on how. Intellectually productive the part of Nigeria you come from is

I WISH YOU THE BEST

I FEEL SO SORRY FOR THE SW, I HOPE THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND I HOPE THEY CAN CONTAIN IT WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN.

u r comparing the peace

u r comparing the peace protest in lagos to the niger-delta, were we saw people carrying AK-47 and sub-machine guns..haba...if we had a mindless leader like the current one we have..he won't ve just sent army to the niger-delta....he would just say "wipe out that region"...u r saying lagosian should move freely, when the very cost of moving freely have gone up..no tanx to Jonathan...lets be truthful to ourselves

its not about politics its about the people

it means they understand what its to be on the side of the people....Jonathan has left the people side for the cabals.... 80% of votes in the south west voted 4 Jonathan despite the fact that buhari had a yoruba has his running-mate, that's what we call principle...so i dont understand why people from the south-south and south-east can see beyond their tribe....so coz Jonathan is from your south-south (a minority) if he brings anti-people polices we should accept it...NO....if truly he thinks certain people r fanning the ember of discord in the country, he should go back to 65N and let see if the people wont hail him again....so my dear brother its not about tribe its about the peoples welfare...let me ask u if the president were to be 4 another tribe won't u ve protested.....as 4 me even if he were to be from my tribe i would still have protested...

am disapointed in u guys and u call ur self nigerians.

am disapointed in u guy, imaobong, uzoma and anonymous this thing legocians are doing will benefit all of us bt u keep criticizing them because of ur selfish animalistic interest. Legocians no going back and i wish u sucess in d strogle. Aluta continue, victoria asata. Godbless lagos nd nigeria as a whole.

enongh is enongh

the south-south and the south-east r mortgaging their further...coz with their stance now..it would be hard 4 them to protest against government's bad policies in future...take 4 instance when obj tried to elongate is tenor the wouth-west opposed him based on principle....i think same should apply now....the issue at hand now is not about Jonathan perse...it's about the ppl.."everyday people"

pls try 2 be objective!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

everytime obj tried and actually increased fuel price the South-west has always been against it.....in short the South-west was the voice that killed third-term.....the way the south-south and south easterners r going about it...if Jonathan was the one seeking a third term u would also try to justify it...."that after-all the north has ruled for almost four decades"...but that is not the issue.....we should be truthfully to ourselves, this issue is not about Jonathan perse.....its about the ruling-class which Jonathan now represents....there's an adage that says "live and lets live"......i dont know were u get ur daily living 4m...but the average man is suffocating......so pls....tell ur ppl to join the struggle it it would be anoda regions turn tommorow...and history would always be there to judge...as it stands now it would be very difficult 4 and igbo-man, or south person...to crisis bad goverment policies in the future..coz of your stance today

PERSEVERE LAGOSIANS

Persevere Lagosians and let the protests spread gradually to other parts of the Country, we must get rid of nonesense. Nigeria wouldn't have been the bad it is today had other sections of the country joined your similar endeavours during IBB's time.

re; Tribalistic people

just want to ask if obj did increased pms so much as 120%.lol for sure nigeria still ve a long way to go cos if only u remember the south-west has always been truthful with their arguement.obj up till now is not happy with the south-west cos he surely know what we think of him.whether anyone likes it or not we are one of the most sophisticated people in nigeria.Thank God am frm this part of nigeria.

That was a nice comment. Well

That was a nice comment. Well done!

@ anonymous

please go learn good english. spoken, and eventually, written. preferrably in lagos too. lol.. you need it.

Niger Delta communities have

Lets be objective for once.Its not about where you come from its a general issue that all Nigerians have to tackle.The protest in Lagos was a peaceful one, the protesters were not carrying Arms so y d deployment of Armed Soldiers.Lets be truthful and stop taking sides.

Why are these protests led by

Why are these protests led by yoruba people? Answer, it is politics. The SW is fighting a SS president. When Obasanjo removed the subsidy from disel, we did not hear a whimper from the SW. Now Jonathan has the courage to do what no other president before him has done, you all want to crucify him. God will judge you tribalistic and nepotistic descendants of Awolowo!

same of the same

thief for president? do not fool yourself wake up

Great comment, very

Great comment, very intelligent point indeed, keep reading and keep commenting.

NEMESIS!

I knew someday nemesis will catch up with Lagosians. Base on sentiment, they squash our alliance between CPC & ACN and opted for the draconian PDP during April general elections. Now look who's crying foul, we dont want soldiers in the streets of Lagos. Enjoy your own share of the Fresh Air!

RE-Fashola 4 president

WELL done thank Good the Lagosian atlas has prove to Nigerian the meaning of their protest by coming out to say Fashola 4 president it means that he has pay you people to campaign 4 d removal of GEJ so that you can put him in place, not 4 fuel hike and not 4 over spread of BOKO HARAM nothing but FASHOLA 4 PRESIDENT let see where you end up thank you

Big kudos

A new dawn,new era,new approach&new legacy.This struggl mst continue till abnormalities become normalities

useless indeed

Nigerian police 100% useless animals who only move when told to move, stop when told to stop and run on hearing the name BOKO HARAM not even minding if the IG will be killed, bunch of idiots.

NLC and TUC shuld go to

NLC and TUC shuld go to blazes afterall Nigerians already started d strike thru Ocuppy Nigeria before their useless non-meaningful make-believe strike. Bunch of chickens that can't stand on their feets. Today d so called escaped Madalla bomber has been re-arrested. Since when has Naija Police started working like this? They shuld sack all of them. God is exposing all of them and at d same time telling us something. The time is now. I think we need a Jerry Rawlings here...we need revolution

They Will Face Justice

Jonathan, and this bandits in uniform attacking the people can not win this war. They fail to realise that Today's Nigeria is different from yesterdays. Impunity is dead and buried. When eventually the people triumph these bastards will be made to face a peoples court where judgement will be delivered by ordinary members of the public, victims of the executive recklesness/brutality and the families of those killed in the struggle. They will not be judged by corrupt judicial officers that they can bribe. So they can carry on and do their worst now that they have the opportunity. THEY WILL SURELY PAY FOR THEIR CRIMES AGAINST THE PEOPLE.

Foolish NLC and TUC (traitors)

NLC and TUC shuld go to blazes afterall Nigerians already started d strike thru Ocuppy Nigeria before their useless non-meaningful make-believe strike.
