Here’s the reason why… and a notice from the organisers of a London Protest March… See you there.
Why Nigerians in London must defy all odds to attend the mass protest on Friday January 15, 2010
Nigeria is in perhaps the worst shape in its approximately fifty-year history. The country lurches from one dispiriting news to another, leaving its citizens close to despair. Recent policy decisions by the Barack Obama administration indicate that Nigeria is now perceived as a pariah state and haven of terror, its citizens regarded as potential terrorists. In the midst of such troubling developments, the members of Nigeria’s political and economic ruling class continue their pursuit of odious privileges and obscene accumulation of the nation’s resources. These unconscionable men and women conspire against the nation’s corporate interests and further impoverish the majority of citizens.
Through the first decade of the 21st century, Nigeria’s potential was subverted by the pervasive corruption, arrogance, disdain and visionlessness of its so-called leaders. Sadly, at the threshold of the century’s second decade, the illegitimate wielders of power in Abuja have again set Nigeria further down the wrong road. Instead of hope, Nigerians are being served, once again, inexcusable ineptitude, dishonesty and outright disrespect for the wishes of the larger majority. These maladies are signposts to another wasted decade.
It is up to Nigerians to resist this dire augury. It is the collective task of all Nigerians, at home and abroad, to stand up and oppose the treachery of those bent on destroying their country. It is time we all made a commitment to expose, and combat, the idiocy and madness of the cabal that holds Nigeria hostage.
This is a time when history beckons on Nigerians to save Nigeria, to defend their country against the small but vicious band of bandits. If we fail, we will have ourselves to blame.
The time to act is Now! We invite you to come out and hold hands with other Nigerians to say, “Enough is enough!”
