“Change Begins With Me” Campaign To Launch On Thursday.

Published

on

In a bid to entrench the values of accountability, integrity and inculcate positive attitudinal change in Nigerians, the Federal Government is set to launch the “Change Begins With Me’’ campaign.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and the Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr Garba Abari, made this known in Abuja.

They said that the campaign was aimed at educating and enlightening Nigerians to appreciate these values which, they noted, are critical to achieving comprehensive national development. According to them, the campaign is expected to trigger positive change that will boost Nigeria’s image, enable the country gain acceptability and command respect in the comity of nations. The minister said that President Muhammadu Buhari would launch the programme on Thursday in Abuja. “About three to five years back now, the role models in the society were people of doubtful character.

“Money was worshipped; nobody cared where and how one got the money; these are the misplaced values that we are tackling now.’’ He said that the campaign would involve every Nigerian and address the shortcomings of every profession and jobs.

Mohammed said that the campaign would also feature slogans that could be easily assimilated by the people, in order to correct identified ills in the society. “We believe that what is wrong with Nigeria is not limited to the elite, the political class and the civil service; if we want that change, therefore, it must address all the issues and target every strata of the society.’’ Mohammed said that the campaign was not a replication of the “War Against Indiscipline’’ which the Buhari-led military administration initiated in 1983 but that it would achieve the same goal using a different means.

“In 1983, they used what they had to achieve what they wanted, which was to correct the decadence in society, tackle corruption and impunity. “However, in the area of enforcement, people alleged infractions and intimidation. “But here, we are going to use the media to appeal to people. We are going to use persuasion, instead of coercion and intimidation. “Our various platforms will be radio, television, print media, bill boards, social media and the like.

“Part of our campaign will also be concerts which will be sponsored by people in the private sector.’’ The minister, therefore, solicited the support of the private sector towards the success of the campaign. Mohammed said that the National Orientation Agency (NOA) would be the flagship body driving the campaign, to ensure that it gets to the grassroots.

He further said that NOA had the duty to its success in states local government areas and schools, while traditional rulers and leaders of faith organisations were also expected participated actively in driving the campaign. In a separate interview, the NOA director-general noted that the programme was also aimed at fighting corruption and encouraging peaceful co-existence in the country. He said it was regrettable that corruption had done a lot of damage to every sphere of the country.

“The Fight against corruption must not begin with the government; people must be in the vanguard of fighting corruption. “Our schools, roads, hospitals should have been better than what they are now, but corruption has stalled their development. “What would you say about a woman who uses chemical to forcefully ripen banana and sell it to the public; what about a woman who would use a padded `mudu’ to sell rice. “A petrol attendant who would claim not to have change so that the buyer would leave the change; all these are corruption,’’

Abari said. He noted that lecturers in tertiary institutions also engaged in corrupt practices by selling handouts to students, while lazy students also cut corners by selling their bodies and giving money to pass examinations. According to him, the change must start at the individual level and inevitably extend to the society and country at large. “Nobody is happy with the way corruption has relegated the country to its present situation. “We, the citizens, must take a second hard look at what we did wrong that we will not do tomorrow. “The change must start with the people in the little things they do in their families, place of work and responsibilities,’’ Abari said.

Whitemoney Says He Pays His 150 Employees Five Years In Advance

Reality TV star Whitemoney, whose real name is Hazel Oyeze Onou, recently surprised fans with a revelation about his business practices. In an interview with Echoo Room, Whitemoney claimed to have a whopping 150 employees on his payroll! That’s a significant number of people who rely on him for their income.

But here’s the even more surprising part: Whitemoney says he doesn’t believe in the traditional monthly pay cycle. According to him, he actually pays his staff members their salaries up to five years in advance! This might sound unbelievable, but Whitemoney explained his reasoning behind this unconventional approach.

He says that by pre-paying his employees, he avoids the hassle and stress of managing monthly payroll. Imagine the administrative burden of processing payroll for 150 people every month. Whitemoney seems to believe that pre-paying eliminates that headache entirely.

The host asked, “I’ve heard that you pay staff members a couple of years in advance; five years, three years in advance. Is this true?”

Whitemoney replied, “To be honest, it is. I operate on that system because it helps me take my mind off things. The way I set up my system is because I’m versatile; I do a lot of things, and I can easily get carried away. Currently, I have 150 staff members.”

Of course, some questions naturally arise from this revelation. For instance, how does Whitemoney manage his cash flow if he’s essentially giving out large sums of money upfront? Is there any kind of contract or agreement in place to ensure his employees fulfil their job duties for the entire five-year period after receiving their salaries? These are details Whitemoney hasn’t publicly addressed yet.

One thing’s for sure, Whitemoney’s approach to payroll is certainly unconventional. While it might work for him and his specific business model, it’s not likely a strategy that could be easily replicated by everyone.

Kendrick Lamar Asks Drake To Return 2Pac’s Ring If He Wants Some Respect

The war of words between rap titans Kendrick Lamar and Drake shows no signs of abating.

At a recent concert in Los Angeles, Kendrick Lamar threw down the gauntlet at Drake. This reignited the feud with a fiery performance of his diss tracks “Not Like Us” and “Euphoria.”

The electrifying atmosphere at the Forum on June 19th, 2024 was a testament to the impact of “Not Like Us.” The crowd, a sea of Kendrick supporters, roared their approval. They sang along to every word of the track that shattered streaming records on Spotify in the US. This wasn’t just a performance; it was a full-blown battle cry.

But Kendrick wasn’t content with just one diss track. During his performance of “Euphoria,” he took things a step further. With a few pointed lyric tweaks, he aimed a direct message at Drake with, “Give me Tupac’s ring back and I might give you a little respect” instead of “Matter of fact, I ain’t even bleed him yet, can I bleed him.”

This back-and-forth between the rappers has become a media spectacle. Fans eagerly await Drake’s next move and wonder how he’ll respond to Kendrick’s fiery performance.

According to Billboard, Drake bought the ring for $1 million and the Canadian rapper has constantly boasted about his purchase. He even flaunted it in the music video for his Kendrick Lamar diss track “Family Matters.”

Drake’s record-breaking journey isn’t just about individual hits.

He’s also a master collaborator, racking up an impressive number of streams on songs where he’s featured alongside other artists. Recently, he surpassed another milestone by becoming one of only two artists to have 15 songs with over a billion streams each on Spotify. Drake shared the record with fellow Canadian superstar Justin Bieber.
