When a new political party (opposition) sprung up with the mantra ‘change’ as its watchword, Nigerians were all happy and received them with so much enthusiasm. One year down the line and the question is where is the change?
Ask the party faithful’s and they will rattle a whole list of accomplished tasks- Treasury Single Account (TSA), fuel subsidy and what not! In fact they were able to revisit major cases of corruption allegations from unremitted funds by high placed Nigerians, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporations (NNPC), oil subsidy scam, pension fraud, oil theft, to mention but a few, in one year in office.
It is rare for a ruling team to score self-goals, but they seem to have done so with unparalleled élan. Achievements have been marred by a series of incidents- increased rate of unemployment, immoral acts, flip-flop of foreign direct investment especially due to insecurity, as the laws of the streets has taken over the laws of the land, poverty, hunger and deprivation amidst plenty, stare one in the face.
‘Rage for Change’- A LEAP Africa publication is a novella that will impact the world positively if approached with an insightful taste by the youths of our generation. This book is the spark that could light up a new horizon on the surface of poverty in Africa; a guide to young Nigerians that are willing to make a difference as the success and the growth of this country, rests on their shoulders.
“Rage for Change” is proof that what makes a leader isn’t restricted to just accomplishing great things, but doing little unique things that anyone who has a heart can do. It demystifies the concept of leadership and brings it within the sphere of influence for everyone – especially the youth.
This book in 6 chapters, will equip, enlighten and inspire through various tools and tips, politicians and the electorate alike, helping them to have a deeper sense of what leadership and civic responsibility demands.
Rage for Change, in this month of our independence, is my recommendation for all, young and old alike.
