It was great having every great having every Nigerian from all works of life and pedigree coming together to stand against the lousy decisions of our leaders. As we count-down to it's first anniversary, suggest how best we can commemorate the Occupy Nigeria protest.

Our deepest regards to beloved Nigerians who died and we thank every Nigerian who in one way or the other stood up against oppression/corruption.

Which Occupy Nigeria? Do cowards do Occupy Nigeria? It was a political rally by those who lost elections in 2011. And cos it was not a patroitic struggle, it was doomed to fail,. And NLC made their money, of course.

One year later n Occupy Nigeria is still a sorry tale.
Occupying any nation or society repuires guts n long-suffering n lest i forget no snitches. which we aint got as a people.
So regrettable that our so-called leaders in the NLC/ TUC, were the major culprits.
Better luck nexttym.

The only occupy Nigeria i would be part of, would be the one that would lead to the peaceful (or otherwîse) disintegration of this failed state.

Occupy Nigeria?lemme hear something better..the protest was a useless venture by Nigerians.After all the subsidy regime still continues..mtchew ......... Come to think of it its not even upto a year sef
Re: Occupy Nigeria - One Year Later by jmoore(m): 3:37pm On Dec 26, 2012
Occupy Nigeria was a failure. Petrol is sold at more than 120 naira a litre and the oil cabal are still collecting the subsidy.

Occupy kor, porkupy ni. angry

The carnival you ediots held last January, was that occupying? Compare your nonsense to the protests of Egypt and Tunisia.

Terry G, Tuface and Banky W were busy entertaining you with those road shows, is that what you call occupy?

Thank God I left that hellhole country for good.

Posters like 'Beaf' of blessed memory advocated remove subsidy, let's pay the market value for fuel, nairalanders wanted to kill him, now we have fuel shortage, we pay N120 per litre and the govt is still owing billions to importers - what have we gained from 'occupy nigeria'?

Re: Occupy Nigeria - One Year Later by egift(m): 4:37pm On Dec 26, 2012
Those rally united Nigerians to stand against bad leadership and policy. The government was exposed for the ugliness the embody. Majority of Nigerians stood for what we believed was right.

Till today President Jonathan proven any one otherwise. He is a bad market. (Check all the indexes)

Nigeria will overcome.

For the naysayers, they are the cowards. Chose to stand for what is right (then blame majority of Nigerians that matched the street for not getting big results).

- The rallies exposed the hypocrisy of this administration when it comes to corruption.
- Forced the government to initiate sensible efforts to correct the wrongs
- Made Nigerians to remove the cobwebs and sentiments that blinded them
- Forced the hand of FG to expose their collaborators-in-thieves
- FG reduced the afflictions (fuel price) they unleashed on innocent Nigerians
- The rallies united Nigerians (North-South, Young-Old, Christians-Muslims, etc)

If only Nigerians could be that determined to flush out its evil leaders and go the whole hog. Tribalism, nepotism and the presence of weasels and stool pigeons won't let them. Tahrir Square should be a model.

You are right. It failed because the cause being fought did not attract global sympaty. Egypt, Tunisia were fighting to topple oppressive leadership. Nigerians were fighting not to pay the right price for fuel and to continue with a regime of uncertainty and constant disruption and shortages in fuel supply. The world was like 'these fellows are crazy'.
