Our Transformation Will Be Evolutionary, Not Revolutionary.

But the evolutionary process can be quickened to shorten its time.

The adventure to transform a nation is a process.For a nation as diverse &complex as Nig.,the process is helplessly long

Making a crucial mental shift from acute short termism to developing a long term perspective on development is a crucial part of the process

The factors that turned us into the nation that we are, are stacked layer after layer, built through decades of iterating and innovating a corruptive culture.

Taking those layers off takes a process. To start building again, block after block, takes a process.

To truncate the process, is to call for a revolution. Revolutions promises quick results, but it doesn’t always turn up with the goods.

For us, such revolutions holds an unbridled potential for unrestrained bloodletting.

The transformation that will alter the status quo& existing paradigms and set a new foundation for a new future can't be done with a quick fix. It’s going to take a process,& we have to trust the process.

What more? It has to be collective and socially inclined

Nature has a process of ushering in change. It’s called evolution. Most times, we don’t like nature’s way, because it takes time. Yet, evolution is a process too, the process.

It may be long, but it's most times unavoidable. We must evolve socially, culturally and politically.
We can’t match nature’s patience, but we can evolve and do so quickly. But we must embrace evolution – the process, until we attain our ultimate objectives.

We can quicken the process by learning fast, iterating and refining our methods and models.

As a movement, we understand this. We won’t attain all our objectives in a day, or even a year. In fact, we are not yet THE MOVEMENT that can attain those objectives. That in itself, is a process

We still need to walk through the steps to emerge at the summit
We still have to evolve through a process called growth to BECOME THE #MOVEMENT that can attain those lofty objectives. That’s why we need to #TrustTheProcess.

#CitizenMovement @OgbeniDipo
It's why we want to build scalable solutions to our social problems that can scale naturally in response to growth.

For a solution to scale this way, it must be community driven,&the community must've a basic sense of ownership over d process.

#CitizenMovement @luminategroup
To build such communities, which by the way is one of our core focus for 2019, requires continuous education & a sustained conversation on the need for such communities & the problem it exists to solve.

The arguments'll have to be sharpened over time.

#CitizenMovement @macfound
Thus, it is more important to continue to build, to consolidate, to evolve. We will not shrink our aspirations, objectives &commitment

Rather, we’ll hone our strategies &explore new opportunities of achieving our goals &reach out for new possibilities.

#CitizenMovement @eobilo
Part of our goal is to build a community of people who care for each other while also working together to transform a nation.

The process of bonding and sharing in the vision is also a core part of it. It takes time, but slow and steady wins it in the end.

We ask citizens to become active agents in this evolutionary process.We make it our job to build a community close to you

When you join such community, you'll find your voice in shaping d society. Imagine millions of active citizens, we'll change Nig. overnight

Conclusion: Our transformation won't happen suddenly. It'll likely evolve over time.

With meticulous and consistent effort of active citizens, it can be quickened.

But remember: it’s a process. Let’s trust the process and commit to the process together.
