The journey to the much desired change has started. May 29th, 2015 should be a turning point in the history of Nigeria because the swearing-in of President Muhammadu Buhari gives Nigerians the hope that things will change for the better.
President Buhari knows how important change is to Nigerians right now and has reiterated his commitment to ensure that Nigerians get not just what they desire but what they are entitled to.
It is important to know that our roles as Nigerians in this task is very important. You will agree that President Buhari's victory at the polls was the voice of the electorate, the voice of Nigerians from the grassroots.

Just as Nigerians brought him to lead in the fight against corruption, to build a new and prosperous Nigeria, so we as citizens must play our role in supporting, encouraging and cooperating with President Buhari because he alone cannot do it. The task of achieving the change we all desire is an enormous task that requires the responsibility of every one of us.
Let us not forget that those who were voted out because of the same change will be watching because they still believe that this administration cannot deliver on its campaign promises. We must show through our commitment that our actions speak louder than our words.
Even those who fought and lost gallantly, recognise that this country needs a turn-around and I would say national interest is paramount, they should put aside personal grieviances and embrace the President's open arms of friendship, john the effort to salvage this nation from the present crisis with which it is ridden.
The international community is also watching us and it is all the more reason why we must all contribute to this 'repair' effort. 2015 General Elections is not about PDP, APC or LP - the election provides for us a brand new opportunity to rebrand this country, make Nigeria a place where we can call home and make life meaningful.
