Nigerians hold anti-government protests — LIVE UPDATES

image1(5)

A protest to demand good governance and an urgent explanation for the country’s economic downturn kicks off today simultaneously in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, and other major cities across the country.

The decision to stage the process has been met with stiff opposition by the police who, repeatedly, told the organisers to call off their planned action.

Popular musician, 2Face Idibia, who was billed to lead the protest in Lagos, opted out at the eleventh hour citing security concerns.

In Lagos, the protesters are expected to march from National Stadium in Surulere to the National Theatre, Iganmu, a distance of about four kilometres.

PREMIUM TIMES will be bringing you live updates of events from Lagos.


Outside the National Stadium, Lagos, there at least half a dozen police patrol vans and more than 20 armed police officers.

Inside the stadium, there are dozens of people carrying placards, as well as more armed police officers.

But everything has been peaceful.

Yemi Adamolekun of the Enough is Enough Nigeria said the group was not discouraged by the decision of Tuface Idibia to back out of the protest.

Earlier, a heavy police presence at the entrance to the National Stadium, Surulere, blocked sports men and women from entering the stadium for their morning activities. The police officers had said the stadium would be closed because of the protest.

But at 7:40am the gate of the stadium was opened by the management of the stadium.

When Fatai Owoseni, the Lagos CP, arrived, he denied authorising the blockade at the stadium.

“If you look towards the gate you will see that the gates have been opened and our men are just controlling the flow of traffic and people, and my men are all stationed to douse any kind of fear from the minds of the protesters,” Mr. Owoseni said.


image3(3)So far, less than 100 people have turned out for the protest.

Olu Martins: “The approach is very simple. It is to tell them that if people resolve, nothing can stop them. We have resolved that Nigeria must change.

“We are here at the National Stadium, that tells you the problem with Nigeria. From here we march to the National Theatre, another national asset that is in shambles.”

This is a peaceful protest. For the avoidance of doubt, let me say one more time, this is a peaceful protest. Please follow instructions so that we can start well and end well.

Yemi Adamolekun: “We need to prove them wrong. We have marshalls in reflector jackets. The police are here to protect us.

“The fact that government wants to stop the protest shows that protests are very important.”

Comedian Seyi Law has arrived to join the protest.


In Abuja, Aisha Yesufu is speaking at the #IStandWithNigeria protest. She is talking of the need to be respectful all through the protest. The pro-Buhari group are here too on the other side of the Unity Fountain.

Onevoice Nigeria, a youth-driven civil society group, which served as the “official partner” of Tuface Idibia’s planned nationwide protest, has commenced the proposed march on Monday February 6.

The group gathered at Unity fountain Abuja at 9 a.m.

There is low turn out.

Security operatives are on ground to ensure the safety of the protesters.

The marches are scheduled to hold in Abuja and Lagos on Monday and Tuesday February 6 and 7, 2017.

IMG_20170206_104856


Abuja protest:

Aisha Yesufu is leading the march as protesters sing solidarity songs.

Protesters chant “By struggle freedom comes, by struggle”.

Some placards say: Mr. President Travel; Students are at home, no money for school fees; 7 exchange rate madness, Emefele must go; Acute hunger in the land.


Abuja protest:

A co-convener of the group, Fidelis Elihabor, who addressed the crowd earlier, said, “We may not have the number today but I can assure you that Nigerians are behind us. Someone promised to be leading from the front but where is he today?”

“Our security operatives should know that they are also bearing the weight of what is happening in the country right now.

“Your salaries are not commensurate with the kind of work you do.

“They intimidated Tuface, he is just one person. If Tuface falls, many of us will rise and if we fall, many others will still rise.”


Access road to the presidential villa is blocked by heavily armed police personnel, and protesters are forced to stop.

Stranded protesters are chanting “I stand with Nigeria”, as they approach blocked entrance route to villa.


Lagos protest

Seyi Law said the government needs to reshuffle its cabinet. He said people can no longer go to farm because they are scared.

“Corruption be like ladder, na those wey dey down na dem hold the ladder make e no fall.

“We have to make transparency the key for this government.”

He says government is budgeting millions to buy newspapers when they can make online subscriptions.

“We are demanding accountability. Make we know those wey dey collect the money. Somebody go school, all the years wey you spend for school, you no see work. Meanwhile one militant wey dey cause trouble dey collect money every month.

“We are not against Buhari. They said we are in recession, let them show us the way out of the recession.”


Lagos protest

The protesters have just left the National Stadium marching towards Ojuelegba and dancing to Tuface’s “For Instance” music.

The initial plan was to march towards the National Theatre but another group of protesters arrived with a band and began marching towards Ojuelegba.

A #OneVoice official told PREMIUM TIMES the plan is to now meet the other group and then turn and head back towards the National Theatre.

The two groups of protesters have now merged at Barracks, just before Ojuelegba, and the sizeable crowd is now heading towards Ojuelegba Under Bridge.

They are beckoning to people watching by the roadside to join the March.

Police escort riders and patrol vans are in front of the protesters while other patrol vans bring up the rear.


Lagos protest

Lagos police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has arrived to lead the police security team. He is walking ahead of the protesters.

It has been a peaceful protest so far, but vehicular traffic along the Ikorodu Road has ground to a standstill.

The police CP has reentered his vehicle.

The protesters are approaching the National Theatre.

The protesters have arrived the National Theatre, to waiting police officers. But they were allowed entrance.

Olu Martins is now addressing the crowd outside the complex.

Charley Boy joined the march, on a motorcycle, about half an hour ago.


Abuja protest:

Also speaking, Human rights Activist, Chidi Odinkalu said, “We thumbed Buhari into office in 2015 because he promised to do a lot, then he got into power and he has never addressed us. When he wants to talk to us he gets into a plane travels abroad and starts gossiping about us.

“Are we so useless that our president cannot address us? Are we so idiotic that our president cannot tell us that things are hard? We don’t get answers, we don’t get empathy and we are told we cannot protest too? What kind of country is that? What kind of citizens are we?

“Who are we to be told we can only protest if police licensed us. We have the right to protest.

“On this Monday morning we don’t know where our president is. We want to know because we care. On 18 January we were told that our president was going for a 10-day vacation. Yesterday we were told he is waiting for his medical test before he will return. Last week, fake pictures of the president meeting people in London emerged. IMG_20170206_105425

“Last night, Femi Adesina said people can get sick; people can even die and Shehu Garba said he spoke with the president’s doctor and was told he is well. Now think about it, if the president is well, who is Shehu to speak to his doctor.

“If the president is not ill, why should people be circulating fake pictures. We don’t want the human rights of the president abused.

“This administration came into power to fight corruption and now, next to the president is the man now known as the grass cutter general of the federation.”

In conclusion, Mr. Odinkalu chanted, fire the SGF, fire the grass cutter!! And the crowd chorused in response.


Abuja protest:

Another group, Support Buhari Group, is also marching in support of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The group also kicked off its march from Unity Fountain in Abuja.

The group is currently addressing the crowd at the Villa gate. They were also blocked by security operatives from entering the Aso Villa.


The Coordinator of the pro Buhari Group, Success Olayemi, stressed the need to support the president.

He said that Nigeria needs to support the president because “if Buhari fails, Nigeria will fail”.

He said Buhari was voted in because of his integrity and he is keeping to his words.


The Lagos protest has officially come to an end with a rendition of the national anthem.


Aisha Yesufu tells protesters to stay on the queue. She says we cannot ask for good governance if we are not orderly.


The protest by the Onevoice Nigeria group ended peacefully as the group marched back to Unity fountain.

Rights activist, Aisha Yusuf, commended members of the group who protested against the government, on how they conducted themselves during the protest.

She urged the group to remain relentless in their pursuit for good and accountable governance.

The group was told that the protest will continue on Tuesday at the same venue.


Lagos Protest

It’s been a peaceful protest so far, but vehicular traffic along the Ikorodu Road has ground to a standstill.

The police CP has reentered his vehicle.

The protesters are approaching the National Theatre.

  • uche

    tuface is a big coward

  • Watch man

    Mr Tuface has not only behaved cowardly but has made himself a villain. By this singular act, he has sold his voice and could hardly be believed any longer by Nigerians whom he has pulled out from their endeavours for this protest.

  • RAPE on The Niger DELTA

    Dear AVENGERS,
    There is massive poverty in the Niger Delta. There is nothing to show for the wealth of the region as monies from the region are used to develop Abuja and the rest of the country. The only benefit the oil producing and resource owners – Biafra and Niger Delta regions benefit from Nigeria are :
    – Pollution
    – Neglect
    – Violence
    – Military Occupation
    – Wanton arrest of its citizens
    – Harassment
    – Sponsored propaganda to defame
    – Bypass in political appointments
    – Hate, hate and more hate
    – Etc etc, etc

    …SECESSION is the only way for the Niger Delta and Biafran regions if they must achieve their potentials. Buhari can remain president of the rest of Nigeria and those of us who do not want to be associated with Nigeria in any way should be left alone to live our dreams and fly to our destination – have our own country. And this is what we must do. May God be with our freedom fighting comrades – the AVENGERS…and we look forward to Operation Hurricane Joshua and Jericho Wall.

  • Angry Nigerian

    A man who considers the Hospitals in a country he claims to lead too filthy to treat himself for an ailment as minor as Ear pains or considers the Schools in the country too substandard for the education of his Children does not by any sane criteria qualify to lead such a country, and in actual fact is not fit to live. This is why I want Buhari to die and I have no apologies to make to anyone who feels hurt.

    Days before he left for UK over 200 Nigerians were bombed to death at IDP camp and he did not care to visit. Not because he was ill but because it is his style. He wasn’t ill when 274 IPOB were murdered and certainly not ill when 769 Shiite Muslims were massacred. On both occasions he never visited. He only visits children born of Chibok girls who were impregnated by Boko Haram terrorists. That is the sick mindset of Buhari.

    • Angry Niaja

      Well I’ve updated my profile, not to be mistaken for a copycat

  • Suleiman Alatise

    What a protest gathering, very big one, more than ten million people turned out.

    • Powerlessconscious

      More than ten million on my foot. Hahahaha

    • Concerned

      Most of them called Suleiman Alatise!

  • Abdul

    People power brought Buhari to power, People Power will send him packing. We will no longer take excuses – either a president knows how to fix Nigeria or we show him the door!

  • Watch man

    “Did you call Wole a Coward? ”
    Yes I did, and not only that: he is also a cultist and has lost relevance as far as I am concerned. Anyone that wants to build a mansion or embark on any project has to count its cost before starting. This includes the risks and how to manage the fall-out should there be any. When Tuface initiated this project, many people re-scheduled their appointments, took some days off, etc. By chickening out at the last minute what do you think 2face has done and what would be the impact on those he has misled? He ought not to have started at all if he did not count the cost as well as the consequences. This is why Nigeria will remain in her situation for long. It is not enough for people to be complaining and whining without doing anything. Docility of most Nigerians is their bane.

    • ECCLESIASTICA

      U are wrong. From your comment it is clear that docility is not the bane but grammar. English people live in England, Spanish live in Spain, Germans live in Germany, Portuguese live in Portugal, Chinese live in China, Japanese live in Japan, Russians live in Russia, Italians live in Italy, Arabs live in Saudi, Finnish live in Finland etc, etc, etc …and this is why there is UNITY and development in those countries and the reason a Buhari will NEVER emerge in those democracies. But who lives in Nigeria? Are we not several countries forced into one? This is the colonial problem in most of Africa and not your so called “docility” or whatever.

      Place all Urhobos, Ijaws, Yorubas, Igbos, Ijaws, and even Hausas and Fulanis in separate countries the way they were before 1914 and you will be amazed at the kind of the best of the best that will emerge as presidents/leaders. But with a Nigeria sick misfits like Buhari and Tinubu or Atiku and Obasanjo are the names you will continue to hear and nobody will ever give people like Peter Obi, Ayo Fayose, Fani Kayode, Nnamdi Kanu, Dokubo Asari or Pat Utomi etc a chance.

      • Watch man

        “Place all Urhobos, Ijaws, Yorubas, Igbos, Ijaws, and even Hausas and Fulanis in separate countries the way they were before 1914 and you will be amazed at the kind of the best of the best that will emerge as presidents/leaders.”
        So, who will “place all Urhobos, Ijaws, Igbos,…. in separate countries”? How will the placement be? What will be the shape and time of the placement? You have just indicted yourself by doing the same thing you said is the bane of most Nigerians: “Grammar”.

  • MILITANT

    …to be very frank with you, there is no better time to blow up pipelines than now. Niger Delta militants where art thou? If other Nigerians are tired and suffering then one can only imagine what the people of the Niger Delta will be passing through now because their own is worse with pollution in the land, air and water.

    • Dualpolemedia

      But once u blow up the pipeline the spillage and the pollution will occur in Abuja? This is one of our numerous problems, people lacks critical thinking forgetting that everything does not borne out of anger. The ill will you bear is the gain of hardship many were experiencing today.

  • Poseidon

    Kwakwakwa!!!
    Mr. Uche kee kwanu?

  • Dualpolemedia

    If Nigerians are truly hungry, i am ready to lead any doubleface protest to my fathers farm and let Tuface bring us cutlasses and hoes. He can help provide jobs and subdue hunger with fewer millions from his bank acct if he thinks right.
    Who produce the food we import? Who feeds our local farmers? I think its also govt? Hunger and Poverty will not cease if people like Tuface lacks critical thinking and foresight lead his followers aright.
    Ok… People are hungry we went to protest for few hours under this scorching hot weather, will the protest provide us food and immediate permanent solutions? How many Idibia’s will be in the fore front of the protest? Are they not hungry as well? The only way out is YOU producing your own food if prices of foods are not affordable again.

    • Beluchi

      I am sure you think you have made a lot of sense ….. definietly you have made good sense but only to your ignorant self….. Think again and reserach how things work in other debeloped countries then you might re-gain your sanity…..

      • Dualpolemedia

        “How things worked in other developed countries”? Is your country develop? Didn’t they labour through pains and plannings to develop? Anyway, thanks for basking yourself in this scorching sun, i hope you have provided lasting solutions to your hunger? May God bless Nigeria.

        • Beluchi

          “Is your country develop?”If you want to be a sucess you learn from an example of sucess and not a failure isin’t it ? we should learn from the developed nations and stop pretending we know what we are doing while we lack all the know hows. Nigeria’s problem is not the president or vice president but the senate who comes together from different zones leave important matters for rubbish while getting paid from money borrowed. I understand your view that we should get up and do things rather than wait for the gorvernment but with out proper government policies all effort might be usless.

    • rotime

      your type are the one,s dragging Nigeria backward. you should be ashamed that you have nothing to offer

      • Dualpolemedia

        I have offered you a common sense which you can take to bank anytime.

    THE POLICE MUST FIRE A SINGLE SHOT AT ANY NIGERIAN TODAY. THIS PROTEST IS THE LEAST
    NIGERIANS CAN DO TO BRING THE BUHARI GOVERNMENT TO ITS SENSES. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

    • Nkem2

      Follow me, please! Petrol per litre is how much today in Nigeria under BUHARI,
      after Buhari increased the fuel price early last year? It is 145 Naira per litre.
      For 5kv generator, how many litres do you need per day to generate
      your own electricity for just six (6) hours? You’ll need 10 litres.
      That is how much? It is 1,450 Naira per day.

      Now, since the zero megawatts Minister for Power Raji Fashola has no knowledge of how
      to supply electricity to Nigerians, how much will you need per month, to get six hours of
      private electricity a day for yourself? You’ll need ₦44,500 a month.

      What is the minimum amount you need today to cook a pot of soup for your four children,
      as a family? The minimum is six thousand Naira – with minimum ingredients. So multiply that
      by 15 days, if you will manage the pot of soup for two days. What will you get?
      You will need 90,000 Naira a month to feed a family with four children.

      That means Naira devaluation by President Buhari plus the petrol tax by President Buhari
      have now made life impossible in Nigeria. Just to eat and have six (6) hours electricity for a
      family now cost 133,500 Naira a month, without doing any other thing, not even going out,
      or, even going to school. How many Nigerians earn ₦133,000 per month?

      Answer me, please!

      Na de protest be that, abi dem still dey warm up??

  • Angry Niaja

    This protests are a step in the right direction, but it should have been more focussed on addressing the overpaid and nauseating salaries of our so called lawmakers, and insisting on prompt trials of the know looters of our treasury, stiff enalties for same. Saraki is said to be one of those funding these protests, he is nursing ambitions of becoming the president, same way he sneaked into the legislative premises and hid in his car for hours. He/ they are trying to force out Osinbajo the VP.

      Rogue Nigerians who were all along in total illusion should see
      clearly now that a revolution has started in Nigeria. Those who said Nigerians
      should go to church and mosque to pray for Muhamadu Buhari’s speedy recovery;
      including a self-described international statesman – the yokel flattered as a baboon
      of Otta – can now see how hollow they’d sounded.

      The people cannot be led by the nose anymore,
      not by the thieves who led them before. The people are on a liberation
      movement path for the first time in Nigerian history. The trees of liberty will
      eventually be watered by the blood of treasury thieves. When the deed is done,
      criminal treasury thieves who stole the country into utter penury will be fed to the
      bonfires as atonement to the land. Long live the peoples’ revolution in Nigeria!!

      • The Revolutionaries

        NIGERIANS, NIGERIANS, NIGERIANS, rise from slumber and kill

        accept ‘theft’ as the meaning of ‘success’.

    Premium Times Editor,

    Muhamadu Buhari Must Not Die

    IF the man should die now how will we remember him since he didn’t
    achieve anything in office? What sort of thing is this for God sake? Are we
    going to say here lies the worst president Nigeria has ever had? Or are we
    going to say here lies the remnants of a man who promised change and made his
    country worse than he met it? This thing is too painful for me to bear. I just
    wish it could be different. Look at all the people that have already died
    because of this man!

    See Femi Falana stammering all over the place – no confidence again. See
    Wole Soyinka doing Wolexit out of his own country at age 84. What sort of this
    thing for God sake? Can he not struggle not to die and achieve at least one
    good thing? Economic recession is not an achievement now – it is a disgrace!
    Even if he dies now the people that will carry him to the grave could be the
    very corrupt people in society. So, will that mean corruption killed him too,
    since he could not kill corruption?

    I WANT TO SALUTE the objectivity in keeping faith with Nigeria as a country and for holding the ring
    in this existential conflict between good and evil going on in Nigeria. The people of Nigeria will win
    this battle because the government officials cannot bribe 180 million people to feel less hungry in
    Nigeria. The game is up. The charlatans who took up government jobs without having the sense
    of what to do will regret where their hungry mouths led them. Today’s nationwide protest will
    presage what will come next. Today’s national protest is the starting gun fired to declare
    open the mother of all battles between victims and thieves in a country denuded of
    everything from water to electricity – thereby threatening the very basis of human
    dignity. This battle will unfold in episodes; and could be bloody, in the next phase.

        In the President, who made promises of alleviating poverty during campaign but rather
        exacerbates the level of hunger in the land, the man died. In the President who
        promised to declare his assets but goes to odious lengths to explain why he
        could not do it any longer, the man died. In the President who promised to
        reduce the cost of petrol but ended up increasing it astronomically,

          NIGERIA IS IN ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE because what you have does not have what it takes
          to move Nigeria forward and new elections are not due until another two years to replace Buhari.
          The problem now is how to live under continuous set of wrong policies that are sinking Nigeria.

          There’s been no electricity in most parts of Nigeria since New Year day and the darkness is deep.
          Crimes and violence have now overtaken cities as crimes now nearly overwhelm the Police Force.
          Illiterates fill up Ministries and civil service, to make the meaning of ‘government’ in Nigeria a joke.

The immediate independence of all local government’s operations from the stranglehold of the state governors 6, There should be a special court comprising veted people with integrity to prosecute and jail convicted any corrupt person from any quarters . Nigerians protests must be anchored on demands like compulsory answer to the energy problem roads and rail infrastructures and conclusive prosecutions of all corrupt politicians and the government officials. If this protests are genuinely the peoples protest it should be sustained as long as it takes just like what is going on now in Bulgaria street as we speak !!!!!!!!!
