I just saw a writeup on the internet and feel I must share.
If we want to improve our lots in Nigeria, regardless of our political inclinations or ethnic origin, let us key into this momentum for change in the country. But this change for the better can only be achieved if it starts from the grassroots. If it starts from you and me. We should think positively and act positively. “Old things should pass away and all things become new”. Our new passion should be to build a new Nigeria devoid of corruption, ethnicity, or religious bias.
We can do it.
We have started it.
This is what I saw and feel I must share:
“CHANGE!” STARTS WITH YOU!
When someone in the car ahead of you throws wastes on the road, drive next to him, roll down your window & shout, “change!” #ChangeNigeria
When you are on a queue and someone tries to force his way in front, scream “change!!”. #ChangeNigeria.
At the point of entry at either the air or sea port, if a Custom or Immigration official is trying to collect bribe. Shout “Change”. # Change Nigeria
A landlord that ‘habitually’ increases house rent. Shout to him “Change”. # Change Nigeria
Any irregularity in the measurement of food items in the market or the display of fake products in a supermarket or drug store. Shout “Change”. #Change Nigeria
Any lecturer that wants to collect bribe either in cash or in kind. Shout to him “Change”. # Change Nigeria
Any public or private servant that is stealing our national heritage. Shout “Change”.# Change Nigeria#.
When a police officer stops your car and says “Oga, anything for the boys?”, tell him, “change!”. #ChangeNigeria
When you walk past any Nigerian who throws paper or banana peel on the floor, please stop him and tell him, “change!”. #ChangeNigeria.
If the church near your house is using a loud speaker to disturb the neighbourhood, visit the Pastor and say, “Change!” #ChangeNigeria
If the mosque near your house is using a loud speaker to disturb the neighbourhood, visit the Imam and say, “Change” #ChangeNigeria
If you are in a vehicle and the driver is driving like someone possessed, shout “Change!” #ChangeNigeria.
When somebody is trying to jump a queue at either the bank or the fuel station or the ATM stand shout “Change”. #change Nigeria#
When an Electricity official cuts your light unjustly shout “Change”. # Change Nigeria#
If someone is answering a phone and lies about his/her location, shout “Change”#
If you are a friend to a man/woman who goes to meet another woman/man and deceives his/her wife/husband that he/she is traveling on an official duty, whisper “CHANGE!”
When a fuel attendant tries to short-dispense fuel into your car remind him about “Change ” #Change Nigeria#
Change starts with you, around you, by you and within you.
So what do you think? Shouldn’t we flow with the change and make our lives better?
This should transcend politics. It is something that brings out the good in us. We have been in the rot for too long to realize how deep we are in rottenness. Time to wake up is now.
Flow with the tide of change or get swept into the gutter with the garbage.
