Nigeria has been stirred to disscussion and action. Many feel the protests are about more than the price of petrol and see them as a popular appeal for more fundamental change. Corruption, governance and the question of a sovereign national conference arise. A meeting of "eminent persons" is held in the grand Victoria Island home of former presidential aspirant Tunji Braithwaithe. Fellow former Presidential candidate, Pat Utomi, former Finance Minister Kalu Idika Kalu, public servants, business and labour leaders debate the issues.
