Buhari To Launch ‘change Begins With Me’ Campaign On Thursday-the Vanguard by HungerBAD: 4:15am On Sep 07, 2016
Abuja –

In a bid to entrench the values of accountability, integrity and inculcate positive attitudinal change in Nigerians, the Federal Government is set to launch the “Change Begins With Me’’ campaign. The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and the Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr Garba Abari, made this known in Abuja.

They said that the campaign was aimed at educating and enlightening Nigerians to appreciate these values which, they noted, are critical to achieving comprehensive national development. According to them, the campaign is expected to trigger positive change that will boost Nigeria’s image, enable the country gain acceptability and command respect in the comity of nations.

The minister said that President Muhammadu Buhari would launch the programme on Thursday in Abuja. “About three to five years back now, the role models in the society were people of doubtful character. “Money was worshipped; nobody cared where and how one got the money; these are the misplaced values that we are tackling now.’’

He said that the campaign would involve every Nigerian and address the shortcomings of every profession and jobs. Mohammed said that the campaign would also feature slogans that could be easily assimilated by the people, in order to correct identified ills in the society.

We believe that what is wrong with Nigeria is not limited to the elite, the political class and the civil service; if we want that change, therefore, it must address all the issues and target every strata of the society.’’ Mohammed said that the campaign was not a replication of the “War Against Indiscipline’’ which the Buhari-led military administration initiated in 1983 but that it would achieve the same goal using a different means. “In 1983, they used what they had to achieve what they wanted, which was to correct the decadence in society, tackle corruption and impunity.

However, in the area of enforcement, people alleged infractions and intimidation. But here, we are going to use the media to appeal to people. We are going to use persuasion, instead of coercion and intimidation. Our various platforms will be radio, television, print media, bill boards, social media and the like. “Part of our campaign will also be concerts which will be sponsored by people in the private sector.’’ The minister, therefore, solicited the support of the private sector towards the success of the campaign.

Mohammed said that the National Orientation Agency (NOA) would be the flagship body driving the campaign, to ensure that it gets to the grassroots. He further said that NOA had the duty to its success in states local government areas and schools, while traditional rulers and leaders of faith organisations were also expected participated actively in driving the campaign.

In a separate interview, the NOA director-general noted that the programme was also aimed at fighting corruption and encouraging peaceful co-existence in the country. He said it was regrettable that corruption had done a lot of damage to every sphere of the country. “The Fight against corruption must not begin with the government; people must be in the vanguard of fighting corruption.

Our schools, roads, hospitals should have been better than what they are now, but corruption has stalled their development. “What would you say about a woman who uses chemical to forcefully ripen banana and sell it to the public; what about a woman who would use a padded `mudu’ to sell rice. “A petrol attendant who would claim not to have change so that the buyer would leave the change; all these are corruption,’’ Abari said.

He noted that lecturers in tertiary institutions also engaged in corrupt practices by selling handouts to students, while lazy students also cut corners by selling their bodies and giving money to pass examinations. According to him, the change must start at the individual level and inevitably extend to the society and country at large.

Nobody is happy with the way corruption has relegated the country to its present situation. “We, the citizens, must take a second hard look at what we did wrong that we will not do tomorrow. “The change must start with the people in the little things they do in their families, place of work and responsibilities,’’ Abari said.

If any change want to start with anyone, it should be from the presidency headed by PMB and APC as the ruling party by fulfilling their campaign promises.


A hungry man is an angry man.

People are hungry, thus, angry. If you want a hungry man to happily do whatever is committed into his hand, first make sure he's fully fed to his satisfaction, then, you'll see how he's gonna perform excellently. So, if the FG want any positive change to start with us, let there be reduction in the sufferings and hardship that are confronting the citizens.

The bitter truth is that the citizens are not going to be cooperative with this programme if the current hardship facing the country persists.


Too much hunger on the land, thus, too many angry citizens. Let positive change begin with this first.

Do you have human feeling at all?

We're talking of too much hunger, suffering, hardship, etc faced by the citizens, you're here mocking people and accusing them of wailing.

Even if you're opportuned to be living in abundance, why don't you show some empathy

Or can you honestly claim not to be aware of the hardship that people are currently undergoing

This is what I'm saying, even, the Bible says that, by the testimonies of two or more witnesses, the truth is established.

Let the change start with the FG, abeg.

Baba's really doing all he could to deliver us from the consequences of years of maladministration we suffer. I know the gentleman sees all that is going on and is deeply saddened he can't simply wish certain stuffs into existence.

He does really care I believe and is willing to do whatever lies within the legal bounds of his office to ensure every Nigerian lives to walk with shoulders high, proud to announce themselves Nigerians wherever they go, unlike the situation obtainable today when politicians, 419ers and drug dealers have totally messed up her domestic and international reputation.

NOA has a huge role to play in this and I'm glad they are being brought on board. Some of us had assumed the agency had been scraped due to the near total inactivity that has characterised their existence, most notably during the last general election. One hardly saw or heard any jingles from them, neither did we see them on the streets distribution flyers, doing what they were established to do. Hopefully, this would mark a turnaround and spring them back to life.

We aren't where we desire to be yet, but I haven't the slightest doubt in my mind regardless of all the challenges we see today, before the curtain falls on this admin, we'd sing a new song.

It is well with my country.

Misplace periority,while
The economy of the country is going down the drain.
There is palpable hardship and hunger in the Land.
Fulani herdsmen on the rampage on a killing spree with impunity at the southern region.
Niger Delta militants destroying and vandalizing oil pipelines.
IPoB advocating for sovereign state of Biafra.
Massive unemployment and Job retrenchment
Kidnapping and other form of social vices on the increase.

All these happening in geometrical progression under one useless adminstraction.And the best this clueless adminstraction could offer to ameliorate the sufferings is to launch an academic exercise of "change with me" campaign.

Who changes with you,when the one you promise before is a negative change.

Buhari and his cohort have they change from cancelling all their campaign promises and lying to Nigerian before asking Nigerians to change.
Buhari have you change from tyranny and draconian system of leadership before asking Nigerians to change.
Buhari have you change your policies that throw the country into RECESSION before asking your citizens to change
