Fellow Nigerians, I strongly believe that government has derailed significantly in Nigeria πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬ and we as a people must refocus it.

When our Legislators sit down and discuss in their various chambers what exactly are they discussing? Welfare of the People or Selfcare?

When the Executives sit down and prepare annual budgets what exactly are these budgets for? Welfare of the People or Selfcare?

To what extent has the ordinary Nigerians felt the impact of good governance in our country?

What exactly is Government all about in our country?

Simple basic amenities the Nigerian government cannot provide over the years yet we budget trillions of naira annually?

Government is now about how much those in government can loot our shared resources?

Government is now about how many houses those in government can acquire in Nigeria and overseas?

Government is now about whose entourage is more intimidating than the other with all sorts of exotic vehicles with brazen sirens?

Nobody is talking about ensuring that every home in Nigeria has clean pipe borne water.

Nobody is talking about the need to get 247 supplies of electricity in every home nationwide. More than 45% of Nigerians don’t have access to Electricity and the 55% that manage to have access to Electricity are in darkness 60% of the time.

Nobody is talking about rebuilding our General Hospitals and Healthcare Centres with adequate provision of Medical Personnels and Medications.

Nobody is talking about the state of our Public Schools. It is now an aberration to even think of sending one’s children to a Public School in Nigeria. Everything is falling apart.

Nobody is talking about the high level of infant mortalities and increasing untimely deaths that beseech our nation due to high rate of insecurity, armed robbers, bad roads and reckless drivers on the highways. 

These issues are primary in my aspiration to the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This is what 2019 should be all about.

I am irreversibly committed to refocusing and redirecting government to begin to address these issues that are facing our people.

Government shouldn’t be about budgeting 70% of our fiscal budgets on recurrent expenditures for some 2.1 million beneficiaries out of 185 million citizens.

Government is about the provision of security and basic amenities to citizens. It is a means by which organizational policies are enforced, as well as a mechanism for determining the policies.

If I may ask, to what extent is our government working for us?

Wake up Nigerians. Play time is over.

You and I MUST Fix Nigeria πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬.

Let’s make our Country Great.

Donald Ike Igwegbu BEng., MSc., CEng., CMarEng., FIMarEST

for President Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
