Why Tuface cancelled protest


The most publicized anti-government protest has been cancelled by it’s initiator Tuface Idibia

The decision for the cancellation of the anti-government protest came on the 4th of february a day after Laolu Akande, a senior special assistant (media) in the presidency said that Tuface, had the right to protest.

Akande stated this on his tweeter handle: @akandeoj;

“It is fundamental right of the people”.

“This administration will not prevent Nigerians from expressing themselves in peaceful protests”, he said.

The planned protest gained momentum with several public figures and civil society groups pledging to be part of it on Monday.

Tuface called for nationwide protest against what he claimed as the worst economic crisis in the country which saw the costs of goods and services skyrocketing, with many families struggling to survive.

The Police had ealier warned against the protest after its initial promise to provide security

The police commissioner in Lagos, Fatai Owoseni said “the police would disallow the protest to hold on grounds that it could be hijacked by hoodlums and it is illegal”.

Police authorities said they had “credible intelligence” that other groups were planning a counter protest on the same day and at the same venues, saying the event could turn violent.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
