Maverick musician, Charles Oputa, alias Charly Boy, Publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, famous actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and Stella Damacus were among hundreds of protesters under the aegis of ‘Enough is Enough Nigeria’, who were denied access to the National Assembly yesterday.

The gate of the National Assembly was shut against them, as a detachment of anti-terrorists and anti-riots squad of the Nigeria Police turned down overtures from the artistes to allow them present a letter to the leadership of the Senate and the House of Representatives or their representatives.

Argument that a clearance was obtained from the management of the National Assembly since last week fell on deaf ears, as the stern-looking policemen mounted a barrier and warned the protesters in their own interest not to attempt to break it.
Indeed, sources confirmed that the security apparatus of the National Assembly gave approval to allow the protesters access to the public arcade to present a letter to the leaders of the two chambers.

A counter intelligence reports after the explosion in Warri, Delta State on Monday led to an increase in the level of security around the National Assembly and the order not to allow any procession by any group to take place.

Ovation Magazine publisher, Dele Momodu fumed with anger as his entreaties to the armed policemen was turned down, while antics displayed by Charly Boy could not sway the police to open the gate of the National Assembly for them.
The frustration of the protesters was transferred to the Chairman of House of Representatives Committee on Youths Development, Hon. Depo Oyedokun, who came to represent the Speaker, Dimeji Bankole.

They decided not to listen to him and later dispersed after distributing the speech addressed to the Senate President, David Mark to onlookers.
In their three-page letter to the chairman of the National Assembly, the group blamed the leaders for the woes of the country and accused them of placing narrow interest above national interest.

“Too much in our country has gone wrong and the blame for this lies squarely on the shoulders of politicians, government and ‘leaders’ who have placed power play, narrow interest and self aggrandisement over and above the welfare and development of Nigerians.
“We have been cursed with a leadership that has sorely lacked integrity, patriotism, passion, good faith and compassion, a leadership that would rather feed their bellies and egos rather than solve problems.”


“They are running our future, they are set to hand over to us a destroyed country and a failed state and we say No to that. We have had enough. And enough is truly enough,” the group noted.
Charly Boy also warned that “Young people will be mobilized to vote only those politicians who were not part of corruption, unconstitutionality and stood for integrity and clear development goals since this dispensation started.
“Any other person who was part of this old system will be shocked by the embarassement we will churn out till them next year,” he stated.

Oh God. . .I was following this story all day yesterday
and felt so Proud and a severe longing to be there.

Its a real shame they were not more at the protest
but this can only be a start.

It also shows the state of student leadership in the
country that there was no show from any of them/
A big disgrace this current crop are. To think the likes
of Fashayo at Ife and Sowere took on military dictatorships
only for these toothless dogs to take over.

So much so an ex student union leader from IFE was leading
pro yaradua campaigns surely after receiving money on the sly.

Nevertheless. . .these ones gimme hope.

I was there yesterday. I felt very proud of myself for being part of change.
I am working on the full report of all that went through yesterday and i sure will do a great story with it.

I felt happy to see that there are so many young Nigerians who are as mad as i am about the state of the Nation.

Thank you dear, Am not been a fan of his but when people realised they have been wrong and take our criticsims seriously and change his stance, its not only brave but commendable.

Just know that while you are here condemning peoples action and busy looking for motives, those people have assessed themselves and have seen what they do wrong made amends and moved on and u re still here. They have taken ur advice and u ve refused to use ur own advice, u re still looking for who to talk about and whose actions to condemn.

Re: Charly Boy, Dele Momodu, Others Protest Bad Leadership by violent(m): 12:41pm On Mar 17, 2010
we need more of this protests!

If only a general protest can be motivated, where all Nigerians stay back at home from work for a day. . and by that i mean all private and public sectors, even the local traders too. . while we declare a match against corrupt governance

Bankole is not only a shame, he is a good example of what mothers advise the kids not to be!

I saw d video yesterday and i was wishing i was there. I felt stella and omotola. They overpowered the barricade the police put there and marched inside where they were stopped and all decided to sit on the floor. I was like "yeah, baby this is what i'm talking about!" that was when i saw nigerians are no longer happy.

You said what i wanted to say about that cleavage,i can't believe nigeria women are as daring as that in their dressing these days,it is good,if you got,you flaunt it.It is sign of mental progress and freedom for people to be able to dress the way they choose.

Meanwhile,the protest is a great step in right direction.Power belongs to people and a people with one voice for a positive change can evoke thunder and lightning,they can move mountains.
