Students leaders from across the various institutions in the country on Monday converged in Makurdi, the Benue State capital to support the ‘Change Begins With Me’ Campaign recently launched bu President Muhammadu Buhari. The workshop being organised by publishers of TheNigeria Online Newspapers called on Nigerians to embrace the positive attitude required to move the nation forward.
In his remarks, Kwuanu Terrence who spoke on behalf of The Nigerian Online Newspaper said Change has started in earnest at the different levels. The event held at the College of Health Science Auditorium of the Benue State University, Makurdi.The event had in attendance students from 14 tertiary institutions.
He revealed that, “when Nigerians voted President Muhammadu Buhari on March 28, 2016 they endorsed and set in motion the train of change that will forever alter the future of the country for good. Change has started in earnest at the different levels.
“At the international level, a lot has changed. Our dear nation is no longer the pariah that years of unfocused and corrupt leadership had brought. Nation’s of the world are back to seeing Nigeria as a worthy partner in world affairs.” he said.
Nationally, the change agenda occupies the central stage.
“Corruption is now stealing and those that engage in it know they have dates to keep with the law. Ethical values are becoming desirable. The integrity being demanded in government circles has triggered private businesses to revisit their corporate governance policies.
“The progress made has to become organic. Much as institutions and systems are programmed to make the change being implemented long lasting, the human component is what can make it permanent. This explains the significance of the “Change Begins With Me” campaign that President Muhammadu Buhari recently launched.” he said
He said TheNigerian newspaper fits into this concept of change beginning with each an every one of us as patriotic citizens.
