10 reasons 2face Idibia is marching against the Nigerian government

Following the continuous rise in the cost of living and economic meltdown in the country, music legend 2face Idibia announced on his Instagram account that there will be a massive nationwide protest on the 6th of February against the Nigerian Govt.

 He's calling for good governance, urgent explanation into why the economy is getting worse etc.
Here are other top reasons he is protesting....

I am just a musician with a point of view and the ear of my fans.Millions of Nigerians will join 2face Idibia at 8am on Monday, February 6 at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos to march against bad government in Nigeria.
This march is about demanding that all saboteurs of good government policies to hands off and also encourage positive minded Nigerians to continue to work without intimidation.
These are 10 major reasons why 2face along with his partners, colleagues and fans will be marching against the Nigerian government:

1) Security
According to the Constitution, ‘the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.’
2) Education
To develop beyond oil, we have to invest in our human capital. Every child must have access to quality education. If our teachers are not paid, how will we raise the next generation to lead the country and run our businesses?
3) Health
Health is wealth. People die daily from lack of basic, affordable health care. We can definitely do better.
4) Power
Government needs to make it easier to generate power at the state and local government level so everything is not tied to the center. We need electricity to be productive. The cost of generating our own power is crippling.
5) Unemployment
Poor education plus a struggling economy means a lot of people are unemployed. Unemployed people are hungry and angry.
6) High cost of living
Food, transportation, medicine, everything is three times, four times more expensive but our salaries haven’t increased. What do we do???
7) Social Justice
According to the Constitution, ‘The Federal Republic of Nigeria shall be a State based on the principles of democracy and social justice.’
There cannot be one set of rules for the poor and another set for the rich.
8) Transparency
The best way to kill corruption is to increase transparency. Government finances and contracts must be open and available to all. Who got the money, to do what and by when?
9) Cost of government
Our governance is TOO expensive – federal, state, local – cars, housing, allowances. We must reduce the cost of maintaining our public officials
10) Patriotism
I stand with Nigeria. There is enough in Nigeria for all of us to ‘chop belleful’. Enough is enough. We must put Nigeria first and keep all the greedy & selfish people away from leadership.
