Change is Coming + Giveaway

Tomorrow, Abuja and other cities in different parts of the world will witness a peaceful rally tagged 'Save Nigeria' against all the things we just sit down in our houses and complain about.

We're all experts when it comes to analysing Nigeria's issues and condemning our leaders' actions, but how many of us really get up to do something about it or will seriously do something to change the status quo even if given the opportunity? I know, i will and that is why I am joining several other Nigerians at the Unity fountain tomorrow in Abuja. The walk is going to be led by Professor Wole Soyinka and a numbe rof other prominent Nigerians.

It's high time we started to speak up and say NO to things we don't want. A lot of my friends and acquaintances live abroad and can't consider moving back home for a lot of reasons. Those of us at home are glad we can afford the comforts of life and just shake our heads at what our leaders are doing. Most of the great countries we admire took hundreds of years to build with some people even sacrificing their lives. We have to fight for our country. If we don't stand for something, we will fall for anything!

Seriously, what country has a case like Mutallab's and you don't get a press statement from the government??? What Nigeria should have done the same day and the days following was to go on air and decline any knowledge of such actions and that the country dissociates itself from any such act and given reasons to support our point of view. The US gave us a whole week to do something, and what does our government give, SILENCE. We should have gone on major TV channels all over the world dissociating ourselves from the act but our government did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Since our government won't, WE WILL save Nigeria. Be a part of the change, join the rally tomorrow if you can. In Abuja, the point of convergence is the Unity fountain at 10 a.m. You can go here for more information.

God bless Nigeria!

It is worth it! I was a part of several protests in Nigeria as a Students Union President for the good of this nation and by the grace of God, would love to be a part of this one. I'll always salute the courage of our people.
