  10. Swani Buba says:

    My heart is heavy. This is a man that was voted for by most poor people not knowing that he is not a capable hand. He does not know how to go about things. It is so painful that we made him the C in C only for him to come and inflict pains on us. Oh this man GEJ!!!. I pray something happens.

  11. I think we should fight for our right this time .

  12. xteeeee says:

  13. Mustapha says:

  18. Plat Kelv says:

    Every one must come out and say enough is enough in nigeria .. if not for ur self do it for ur kids .. for a better tomorrow

  19. Anonymous says:

    Jonathan did a political miscalculation by the sudden action his administration took to remove fuel subsidy at a time nigerians are in serious economic pains.what he should have done was to ensure stable security of lives and properties before revisiting the subsidy issue.clearly we now know that jonathan is a blunder and catastrophy on the nation.

  20. Anonymous says:

    If this doesn’t cause a revolution.. I’m afraid nothing else will.. It is time my fellow Nigerians.. Let us stand as one and say no to our bad government!

  21. Everest Okorie says:

    I sorry for Jonah. His intentions is right but d timing is wrong. Who are those confusing this Man. I think i will do better.

  22. AGHA says:

    I would have expected that Nigerian allow a 2weeks period to assess the impact before going out to protest.

    we are yet to see the Guidelines and Regulations on the deregulations.

    This early protest is not called for in my considered opinion

  23. James Mario says:

    Enough is Enough ! Is really time for all NIGERIANS home and Abroad ( World-Wide ) to stand and sopport War against Corruption in our Country,It is time to stand and fight for our right ( HUMAN RIGHT ).We all should get prepered to go back home cos no man is left out of this.

    • abiodun Lasile says:

      i think a well deserved return gift for the subsidy removal is serious unrest, disobedience, retaliation on their persons and peace. what is the next consideration to a common man, though we will cope but we need Tropics Springs.

  24. Chris says:

    I want more celebrities to join d tweets. We have had enough.
