The Federal Ministry of Information and Culture on Thursday lauched a new national orientation campaign, #ChangeBeginsWithMe.
President Muhammadu Buhari at the event, said: ‘If you cannot see the change in you, you cannot see the change in others’.
He added: “Before you ask where is the change they have promised us. You must ask yourself how far have I change so far”.
However, some Nigerians have divergent views about “the change” and from whom “the change begins with”.
MBuhari FYI I have changed. Yet to see you change by selling off some of the presidential jets. Lets start there. Shall we?
Recession is no longer a word, but Nigeria has the highest-paid government officials in the world. Does the #ChangeBeginsWithMe ?

However, reactions to the campaign are not limited to the sarcastic and the humorous.
