Nigerian Bloggers

Umaru Yar'Adua, the newly elected Nigerian President has begun his work in Nigeria amidst protests that the election was rigged. Nigerian bloggers, based in Nigeria or overseas have been blogging about the Nigerian situation.

* Nigerian Curiosity - the blogger wanted Nigerians to make the goverment accountable while administering the country and she drafted the Nigerian Proclamation reflecting disappointment in the recent polls and the expectancy from the new government.

* Omodudu - requested Nigerians to "Let us speak with one voice. Let us make demands"

* Silent Storms in an Ocean of One - the blogger urged not to sit still or just complain quietly, as it would not pressure the government in getting things done accordingly.

Following 3 bloggers doubted that the proclamation could affect the new government even if the government didn't stick to its election promises:-
* Nigerian Blogger in Cyprus - doubted the campaign under Nigerian Proclamation could work.

* Lagos blog! - blogger said that the Nigerian Proclamation would not cause the new President to pack his bags even if he failed on those issues under the proclamation.

* Chxta's World - thought that the Nigerian Proclamation was a bit too late.

* Vera Ikeji - this blogger was excited that a new president came into office and maybe could change some things.

* Thy Glory O Nigeria! - this blogger was not happy with the cost incurred in the new President's inauguration ceremony.

Socio-political bloggers are everywhere.
