Building a New Nigeria - Be part of the Change you Desire

PMB's Promised Change

It is very obvious, Nigerians desire CHANGE. Almost everyone agree on one thing that we can not continue the way we are - the status quo can't remain . What is not very clear is what exactly we want to change, how to change it and who to change it.

Political events of the recent past here in Nigeria and other parts of the world leave no one in doubt that power actually belongs to the people. 

Government has a big role to play in bringing about change, but the people must be the change they want and drive the change they desire.


Things don’t just happen, people make things to happen.
Be part of the change you desire!
What CHANGE do you want to see?
What CHANGE have you made around you?
What CHANGE have you seen recently?
