President Buhari, during the launch of the Change Begins With Me Campaign, told Nigerians to see change within them first, before they can see change in others.
He said “The campaign we are about to launch today is all about the need for us to see change, not merely in terms of our economic, social progress but in terms of our personal behavior on how we conduct ourselves, engage our neighbors, friends and generally how we relate with the larger society in a positive and definitive way and manner that promotes our common good and common destiny, change at home, change in work place, change at traffic junction, change at traffic lights, etc.”
The campaign which was flagged off on Thursday, September 8, 2016, has attracted a lot of attention from different quarters.
An organization known as BudgIT, slammed Buhari saying the government should first of all show change by promoting transparency.
Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu asked Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari.
