Advocating For Change



This picture depicts advocates fighting back against the institutional corruption and injustice that exists in the government of Burkina Faso(Right), and Nigeria(Left/Fuel subsidy protest Jan. 2012). It is clear from the picture that the Burkina Faso citizen is steadfast in his beliefs and is willing to fight for what he believes is just and right. Unfortunately this is not the case with my fellow Nigerians. Day in and day out I hear about the need for a revolution in Nigeria. I fully agree, however, it seems to be a bunch of chatter.

We are charged with the responsibility to advocate for change and revolution. This advocacy is not just about lip service, it is about truly showing the steadfastness to stand up for what is right and not to waver in the face of adversity.

 It is certainly not easy and definitely not popular but it is the right thing to do.
