Nigerian Police Agrees To Provide Support For Tubaba's Nationwide Protest

The Nigerian Police has against its earlier decision to ban the nationwide protest organised by Nigerian singer, 2face Idibia and his partner scheduled for 6th February, 2017 has lifted the ban.

Speaking on the protest, the Lagos state commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni took back his earlier statement adding that men of the Nigerian Police will be on ground to provide security for protesters at the National Stadium in Lagos.

The commissioner after meeting with organisers of the event told newsmen: “We had a meeting with the protesters and we explained to them why we advised against the protest. A pro-government group wants to protest that same day and we don’t want a situation where there would be friction.

“We also don’t want hooligans to hijack the process and injure the protesters. After explaining to them, they said they will go back and discuss with others. They said if they decide to go ahead, they won’t demonstrate but would assemble at a point and read their demands.

“That notwithstanding, we have resolved to provide security for them. It is our responsibility and we won’t shy away from it. We will ensure trouble makers do not hijack the process.”

      One trillion oh.. this is great news tho

    2. "I am a fan of GEJ because he was a Democrat and pushed for peace and Unity but I was angry with him when the fuel price was increased without taking into consideration the masses and the way it was introduced without informing people. I condemned the move and protested against the price hike. I was not happy with him because it was a failing of the government to respond to the needs of the people and cushion the effect of rampant poverty.
      "The occupy Nigeria movement humiliated the government and made Gej reduce the price. Although it didn't go back to 65 Naira but our voices and activities against an unpopular decision made the government listen. That's what protest can do. I did not sit back because I was a massive GEJ fan or friend of Pdp rather it was my duty to whip the government back to shape to fulfill it's promise to the people and stop impoverishing them. That is what citizens must do to make their leaders accountable whether you support them or not. Government officials derive their powers from the people and it's the people that would force them to conform.
      Now another occupy Nigeria is in front of us with the 2face backed rally on February 6th. With GEJ it was about the fuel hike and corruption in high places. With Buhari I don't even know where to start. Is it the hypocrisy of his anti corruption crusade or the lack of foresight on how to move the country forward? Is it the prevailing hunger killing everybody or a government that continues to destroy the economy but satisfies itself with blames and excuses? Buhari's economic sins are endless and it's making Gej's occupy Nigeria look like child's play.
      This February 6th rally is long over due and if you are a true patriot it's necessary to come out enmass to let your voices be heard. It matters not if you are a Pdp or Apc supporter. Your wallet and stomach knows no party. Your generator and car fuel tank knows no party. Your kitchen gas or stove knows no party. The forex exchange that did not pass N215 since 1960 but has shot up to N500 in 18months under Buhari knows no party. It affects all of us whether yoruba, Ibo, hausa, ijaw, urhobo, fulani, efik etc.
      The more you keep quiet and support a government that does not care the more the economy weakens because Buhari has not seen the anger and hunger affecting us. He increased fuel to 145 from 97 Naira but we kept quiet. Price of diesel has shot up 200% but we kept quiet. Forex increased from 215 to 300 but we kept quiet. It increased from 300 to 400 but we kept quiet. It has increased to 500 but some people are still saying I stand with Buhari. At what point in time would you sit down with Buhari? Is it when your family is starving and you are begging for crumbs with the forex at 1000 to a dollar? Right now the economy is stagnant but no reprieve anywhere.
      Cost of living has increased but salaries have remained the same. If you run a business your cost of maintaining that business has increased 1000% fold but you are generating the same 2015 income or less. If you are working for a company, you work harder but your salary has remained the same since 2015 but your daily expenses has shot up 1000%. Where we put on this earth to suffer and stagnate or to move forward? Let's not talk about the millions that have been sacked because Oga cannot pay salaries or bills anymore. Has Buhari thought of how these people are surviving without any help or assistance? That's why people had to run to MMM to survive. If there was progress economically would millions of people throw their savings into it. This government does not give a rat ass about anybody. You are on your own.
      Remember you control the government not the other way around. I support the 2face backed rally. You should also do that too so as to protect your family from impending doom and starvation.#istandwith2baba"

    1. Which country ever stops it's citizens from demonstrating?

      That's why the police are there, you provide security,control the crowd and make sure hooligans don't take over the process...

      Nigerian police have a long way to go meehhnnn! !!!!

  3. They should not go there nd be harassing people trying to forcefully prevent them from protesting well

  4. Very well then, the countdown begins.

  5. Very well then, the countdown begins.

  6. Even though the protest will not change anything its still important it holds.
    Just wondering if we bothered asking how Buhari planned to effect the change he promised or we where just carried away by the end result hypothetically.
    For example
    I will make #1 equal $1

    Answer: #1=$1(how was he going to arrive at the answer)
    If we can be more objective in 2019 by asking how and not just listening to the hypothetical end products we would chose a good leader.


  7. I am sure the recession is not affecting TuBaba like that but he is standing up for something. I would have expected massive support from celebrities but as usual, they are all hiding.

    If you do not stand up for something, you would fall for anything.

    I am sure right now, they are looking for one false accusation to lay on TuBaba, but let them remember that we are all watching. Nothing must happen to TuBaba.

    I can't remember the Police stopping the woman's March though the March was anti-Donald Trump yet the President allowed it.

    We are practicing a democratic system of Government and we have the right to a peaceful demonstration.

    It is shocking how Femi Kuti lacks the activist spirit of his father. I have never heard him stand up for anything. People like you should be pioneering these and not TuBaba. When the elders keep quiet, the younger ones shouldn't.

    As for Pro-supporters rallying that day. All of you are a disgrace to your great grandchildren.

    This is not about party or tribe
    PDP under GEJ misruled Nigeria greatly.
    APC is PDP's old wine in a new bottle.
    Same Politicians, same tactics.
    The only President that looked out for the interest of this country remains President Olusegun Obasanjo.
    The rest had no plan whatsoever.


    1. OBJ was the greatest president Nigeria ever had! He was rugged and looked out for the nation.

      How I miss baba

  8. This is what I call initial gragra

  9. #If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome*

  10. That is what they should do to support them not the other way

  11. "Lifted the ban"?? we weren't asking for their consent in the first place... awon oni ranu.

  12. Ndi ara ,some people must have reset them brain ,Nigeria police the most intelligent police in the whole wide world,wait until Nigeria police gives you allegation then you will know they are world best
