  3. The protest brings a strange religious unity to Kano residents.
  4. In kano a covenant has just been announced by the protest leaders that the muslim protesters shall protect all non-muslims and escort them to their places of worship and vice-versa. They vowed to resist any attempt to use religion to divide them. A register has just been opened. The police are behaving well. Pls share

  10. Police harassment has been always been a problem in Nigeria. The situation is worse for the raging protests. On Day two of the protest, one protester was shot dead by the police in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state.

     In Abuja, on the first day of protests, 12 protesters were arrested and branded criminals. In Kano, the harassment continued.

  19. Spending the night at the protest ground is historical and hailed by other protesters in other parts of the nation.
  20. Successful protest in Kano. Succeeded in stopping hoodlums from taking advantage of it. Kudos to Students of Bayero University Kano and Kano State Polytechnic. Its been a fastastic outing so far. Policemen were also cooperative and mature. I guess they are realizing the 1 billion naira voted for GEJ to feed will not feed their families.

  1. There should be no more ethnic, tribal or religious war in Nigeria. Hardly do you not see an Igbo man married to an Hausa or Yoruba woman today. Muslims and Christians do inter marry these days. Friendship in modern Nigeria cuts across tribal,ethnic and religious differences. The war should be against the 1% in Nigeria. If GEJ is sincere why not appoint Tam David-West, Minister for Pertroleum and let him (TDW) perform as he did durng Buhari adminstration, when there was not a single Petrol/Fuel importer and yet there was never a fuel scarcity or high fuel price. Govt. did not import fuel then even when consumption went up.It was a such of “I’ll give you corn/maize and you’ll give me corn flour or akamu/eko or beans and I’ll get back akara or moin moin.
