My people, our brother, Omodudu, recently noted that he wondered whether Nigerian bloggers could have an impact on our elections. Well, the elections have thankfully come and gone, but I still believe that we as a community of bloggers can still make a statement.

As such, I am drafting a short 'manifesto' that will be posted on day Tuesday for anyone that wants to then put it up on their blog or email it to friends. It is a statement reflecting our disappointment over the recent polls and expressing our expectations in the future.

I hope that you will participate in making a statement on the 29th. If you choose not to use the 'manifesto', please take that day to blog about Nigeria and please simply title your post NIGERIA.

So, my people, let us join together to show our rulers and leaders that we are watching, that they are accountable to the people and that we will not let them forget.
