Announcement of a Protest: Nigerian Students to Occupy Abuja via Berlin
Corruption in Nigeria are presently bizarrely high. We cannot afford to be silent. The cost of doing so is too big a price to pay. All possible avenues, so far it is within the means of reason and acceptable standards, must be employed to make our voice heard. We as a people are clearly against government mismanagement of our common wealth and heritage in Nigeria. We must speak out against corruption of every form in and of the Federal Government, represented by the Jonathan Presidency. Many state governments are just as terribly bad and corrupt as the Federal Government. They care less about the people. We must not be silent about them. Every Nigerian must speak out against this monster of corruption which has successfully taken-over our country. This is an urgent and immediate task for all of us.
In view of the urgency and immediacy of the matter, certain Nigerian students resident in Germany have taken it upon themselves to make their voice heard in Abuja Nigeria. They will visit the Nigerian embassy in Berlin on the 10th of March 2014 to protest the missing 20 Billion Dollar oil revenue, for which Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is yet to account for.
Any Nigerian and like-minded people in Berlin on this date can join them at 10.30am in the morning. The German Police in Berlin has been duly informed and they have have promised to provide adequate security for the protesters.
Actually, this missing money is one among many other issues on the list of the angry students. On top of the insult, the championing vanguard who exposed this scandal in Nigeria has since been relieved of his job as Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under the guise of indictment of irresponsibility in and abuse of office. Clearly, this is a pointer to the fact that anyone who speak against the government is a possible target for witch-hunting and blackmail from the government. We must not be silent.
The missing money is the last straw that eventually broke the camel’s back. This is one slap too many for any Nigerian to bear. The voice of the people must be heard. The Time to speak-up is now!
Videos and photos of the protest shall be uploaded. We shall keep readers informed and up-to-date.
