Are you angry with the condition of things in Nigeria? Are you annoyed with the corruption of the looters we call our leaders? Are you angry that more than 28 million youths of our country have no jobs? What about the issue of electricity, does it vex you? Do you feel angry that in this country, those who work suffer while some who because they are highly placed and privileged and do not work get rich?
What about the fact that over 70% of Nigerians are poor, does it vex you? Do you feel things are not going on well in this country? Do you want change? A radical change that will bring to power a poor people government that can ensure that Nigeria's huge human and natural resources is used to benefit all of us.
