Sign the Petition to The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

Progress

755 signed
9,999,245 more needed

We, with a burning desire to witness a prosperous Nigeria, have decided, to take a stand now. Our demands are as follows:

1. Reduce salaries of all senior government officials such as the President, Vice-President and their support staffs, National Assembly, Federal House of Reps with their support staffs, State Governors, deputy governors with their support staffs, House of Assemble members with their support staffs, Local government chairmen, councillors with their support staffs by 50% to be reflected in 2013 budget.

2. Constituency allowances being paid to National Assembly members, state House of Assembly members and ministers etc should be scraped while half of it should be paid to local governments for development.

3. Feeding, furniture, car, repair allowances to all these government officials to be reduced.

These savings to be used accordingly:
1. Salaries of all security agents such as the police, State security service, and Civil defence corps to be increase whereby their minimum wage is N50, 000.

2. To recruit more police officers, State Security agents and civil defence corps across the Nation, given them adequate training and the tools needed to effectively police Nigeria. In the process reduce unemployment.

A company that requires a workforce of hundred but has just 20 cannot operate effectively which is the state of the Nigeria Police. The number of officers employed to secure over 160 million people in 36 states will never be able to secure just 30 million people in 5 states effectively.

"Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying, 'make me feel important.' Never forget this message when working with people." – Mary Kay Ash

Motivating our police officers with good salary structure and respect will go a long way to boost their productivity and effectiveness making the job attractive and them willing to put their lives on the line of duty. Once we can get all police officer across the country, on the same page of protecting lives and property from crime or terror, and then, we should be rest assured that Nigerians will begin to live safely.

3. Teachers in public schools salaries to be increased with N50, 000 being their basic minimum wage. These will also go a long way to boost their moral as a result will teach our children well.

4. Increase allocations to the ministries of Health across the Federation as the saying goes “Health is Wealth”

5. Rest should go towards Infrastructure development and agriculture subsidy to farmers and the poor according to importance.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

To effectively make our demand possible, we, (Nigerians) have decided to begin a peaceful citizen’s sit at home, from February 4th 2014. All civil servants working with government across the 36 states should submit their names to the Nigerian Labour congress and the public, if ever they lose their jobs as a result of the strike.

All Nigerians irrespective of their tribe, culture and religious beliefs, home and away should assist those without means with either financial assistance or Food stuff to enable them stock their homes with food that will last them for 3 months. Get in touch with your brother, sister, mother, father, uncle, pastor, and or Imam to assist as you will never regret your actions. We are not going to or intend to fight anyone but intend to boycott all government offices with a peaceful citizen’s sit at home that could last up to six months. But please, most importantly, spread the word to your brothers, sisters, parents, friends, religious leaders, etc in order to create the required awareness.

Signed,

Olufemi Balogun
