Many people were injured in the process even though it was supposed to be a peaceful protest. Occupy Lekki is a mass protest against the tolling on Lekki-Epe Expressway. Men of the Police Force allegedly dispersed protestesters with Tear Gas but that resulted in Exhasution of some protesters. The toll which goes as high as N50 for motocycles and N300 for heavy duty vehicles.
The Government of Babatunde Fashola, Lagos State Governor has come under serious critism. With the drama around the fuel subsidy, uncessary new number plates and Drivers' Licence, Nigerians are Tired of the mechasims that run the economy.
Some Nigerians have said the the Anti-Gay Bill was uneccesary when other pressing needs are screaming for attention...with The Boko Haram theat still lingering and people not feeling safe, poor infrastructure, High Domestic debt, Import driven economy collapse of the educational system( ASUU on strike) and unyeilding policies; President Goodluck Jonathan isincreasingly getting unpopular. The motivation is really low, while we pray, we want result.
I have always liked Fashola but i think he should reconsider this step even though it appears like a made decision.
I really cannot help but keep wondering what is happening in Nigeria.... everyday, we wake up to different disturbing headlines. Occupy Lekki is obviously not working in a place like Nigeria and it shows the kind of system that works around here.
