Could the Arab/ North African Spring be moving south across sub Sahara?

The goverment of Nigeria has ended fuel subsidies. The price of petrol has almost double in some areas of Nigerian. Many Nigerians live on less the $2 a day.

This cannot last. President Goodluck Jonathan MUST come up with some other way to save his goverment $$$!.

Why does Nigeria import fuel when it’s the world’s number 12 largest oil producer and world’s number 8 oil exporter?  In the words of Kanye West, “This shit cray!!!”

According to interview by Seun Kuti, Nigerian power plants are powered by generators, again, “This shit cray.”

And the short term solution is 1600 buses? Who got that goverment CONTRACT???

Refineries MUST be built or the President will run out of goodluck. Because once the people speak in unision, 160,000,000 voices, it’s a wrap!

A Nigerian Spring will ensue and a hot ass Nigerian summer will follow.

If the SAPs of the mid 70’s were never implemented Nigeria would be in a much different place today.

Nigeria and the rest of Africa need to stop suffering from post colonialism dementia and start implementing solutions which are African grown, from the root.

YOUR CULTURE IS RICH.

YOUR LAND IS RICH.

YOUR PEOPLE SHOULD BE RICH.

Sincerely,

Artikle

This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again.
