PHOTONEWS: Joe Okei-Odumakin Floats New Civil Society Platform- 'Center for Change'

The President of Campaign for Democracy (CD), President of Women Arise for Change Initiative (WA) and the chairperson of Task force at Professor Wole Soyinka's 'Citizens Forum' among other civil society statuses, Dr. Josephine Okei-Odumakin has launched yet another NGO.
 

Her new platform, Center for Change (CC), lists Pastor Tunde Bakare, the convener of Save Nigeria Group (SNG) as its Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

 

Center for Change, Okei-Odumakin said, started as Center for Participatory Governance following yearnings of some activists to be part of the political determination process as Nigeria transmuted into a Democracy. She announced that CC became fully registered only a few days ago. 

 

At the launch in Sheraton Hotel Lagos today, Prof. Pius Adesanmi, a prolific writer and lecturer at the Carleton University in Canada served his usual reflection on the State of the Nigerian Nation with a sense of satirical narration. 

 

Prof. Adesanmi's lecture titled; "Boda Nigeria, Bros Naija and Soul Things" wove history with captivating philosophies around what constitutes the missing soul of Nigeria, separately from the unifying souls of other highly rated countries of the Globe.

WHEN CORRUPT MIND MINGLE.

when corrupt mind mingle the result is the pic above.we the citizen of naija need to be careful with the so call leader thier intention is alway centre on thier self alone.i reapt need to be careful they are not for us.this is food for thought

What is the achievement????????????????

Thank God some people have commented what is on my mind about civil society. The question remain how relevant are they. Since SR have been exposing these crooks in governments what changes have these had on level of corruptions, looting etc.

To the best of my knowledge, talking will not produce results in Nigeria. I remember, if your parents find out you stole or take other peoples items, that person will be beaten till he or she change.

If our leaders are not beaten and disgraced openly locally and internationally, nothing will be done to the level of corruption in Nigeria.

ASK GOV FAYEMI NA SO HE DO

ASK GOV FAYEMI NA SO HE DO NGO TILL HE BECAME GOVERNOR NOW HE IS ENJOYING 100MILLION NAIRA MONTHLY SECURITY VOTE ...HE CLAIMS HE WAS WORTH 750 MILLION NAIRA BEFORE HE BECAME GOVERNOR.... A BEG THEY ARE ALL THE SAME

You're Damn Right

How can she function properly and effectively when you are president of the NGOs. Why can't the same ideas be enmeshed in CD. I used to be a coordinator in those days and a member

CENTER FOR CHANGE

THE SAME PEOPLE,THE SAME FACES,THE SAME LANGUAGE,DIFFERENT NAME. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD LIVE US ALONE IN THIS COUNTRY,THEY ALL WANT ONE THING OR THE OTHER,ONCE THEY GET IT,THEN THEY CHANGE NAME AGAIN. JUST LOOK AT SOMEONE LIKE TUNDE BAKARE,IF HE HAD WON AS A VICE PRESIDENT,WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO YOU THINK HE WILL BE LIVING TODAY? WOULD HE STILL BE MAKING NOISE TODAY. NONSENSE PEOPLE!

Na Wah O!

Another NGO?

BTW, Pastor Boko Haram has never seen a microphone he didn"t like.
