Projectnewsong presentation ppt

  1. 1. PROJECTNEWSO NG Ayodele Akin-Adewolu ayodeleakinadewolu@yahoo.com 08165505959 2928BCF8 NIGERI A
  2. 2. May we please bow down our heads for prayers? Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause Guide our leaders right Help our youths, the truth to know In love and honesty to grow And living just and true Great lofty heights attain To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.
  3. 3. Fellow Compatriot, The Nigerian government through the Federal Ministry of Information and National Orientation launched the Nigeria Image Project, now renamed The Heart of Africa project in July 2004, following in the footsteps of some other African countries which had launched similar image campaigns such as South Africa which launched a Proudly South African image programme.
  4. 4. To Rebrand Nigeria is to redefine our concept of Nationhood and engage wholly in the process of National renewal to attain a height where National Interest is exalted far and above personal, ethno-religious and regional interest.
  5. 5. It is total rededication and recommitment to the dictates of the National anthem and recognizing the lines in these visionary statements as sacred oath of allegiance to our Country, to rekindle the fire of patriotism to our Nation.
  6. 6. What is Projectnewsong? Projectnewsong is a national movement that the second stanza of the national anthem be made the first one, a movement to move a motion for the amendment of the constitution, to make the second stanza of the national anthem the first one and also to mandate that it be sang at every of our gathering as a people.
  7. 7. The song of a nation depicts the kind of citizens therein. After two scores and half years of independence, it’s high time that we have a new song in Nigeria. A time for us to return back to God, to sing a song of a spiritual call to the God of creation, that he directs our noble course, guide our leaders’ right and help our youths the truth to know.
  8. 8. First and foremost, Nigerians should realize that we have a rendezvous with destiny and that, the task of reshaping our individual and collective destinies is our sole responsibility and that, we owe the next generation a duty to craft a well projected, practical and workable blueprint for Nation building or we may be, in former US president Ronald Reagan’s word: at the edge of “sentencing our children’s children into a thousand years of darkness”.
  9. 9. Now is the right time for Nigeria to overhaul her value and believe systems by discarding the imperialist ideology of Nationhood that was transferred by the colonial masters to our unsuspecting founding fathers. Who were psyched at Pre-independence, Independence and Post-independence into believing that once independence is granted, all is done, they are unaware that independence leads to the wilderness, only freedom leads to the promise land.
  10. 10. At these defining moments in our National lives, We need, as a matter of urgency, to start replacing the Imperialist administrative structure inherited by our founding fathers from the colonialist which has thus far been recreated and promoted by us; which is described as DICHOTOMY: Hausa/Yoruba/Igbo dichotomy, Christian/Muslim dichotomy, Military/Civilian dichotomy, Rich/Poor dichotomy, Male/Female dichotomy, to mention a few.
  11. 11. We should begin to uplift our political commitments above the ancestral political jingoism. For example, let us start today to talk more positive things about Nigeria and about ourselves, by invoking the 2nd stanza of our national anthem.
  12. 12. Prof. Pat Utomi of Lagos Business School in one of his write ups said "Nigeria has no business being poor". WHY?
  13. 13. WHY?  GDP (purchasing power parity):  $369.8 billion (2010)  $346.2 billion (2009) (32ND in the world)/196 countries in the world  GDP - real growth rate: 6.8% (2010) 5.6% (2009) (27TH in the world)  Population below poverty line: 70% (2007)
  14. 14. WHY?  Electricity - Production: 21.92 billion kWh (2007) 70th in the world  Electricity - Consumption: 19.21 billion kWh (2007) 69th in the world (2.71 billion difference)  Electricity - Exports: 0 kWh (2008)  Electricity - Imports: 0 kWh (2008)
  15. 15. WHY?  Oil - production: 2.211 million bbl/day (2009) 15th in the world  Oil - consumption: 280,000 bbl/day (2009) 45th in the world  Oil - proved reserves: 37.5 billion bbl (January 2010) 10th in the world
  16. 16. The Nigerian Rain forest is the best in the world. Most of the Nigerian Mineral Resources are in the best existence form, many are untapped, many are yet to be discovered.
  17. 17. Nigeria made from the Gulf War excess crude oil profit in 1996. 6.5 Billion Dollars and that’s a few billion less what the whole oil producing states in Africa made from 1963 to 1996 and that’s why the MD/CEO of a multinational telecommunications company in Nigeria can, in a meeting in London said “any fool with half a brain will make money in Nigeria”.
  18. 18. Our leaders, if they are truly Nigerians at heart and are not mere caricature leaders, should be convinced and not finds it difficult to make the second stanza of the national anthem, the first, as public opinion is quite in its support.
  19. 19. The song on the lips of all Africans especially Nigeria is no more independence but FREEDOM and only God can set free You, I and all of us need to rise up and support this movement in whatever capacity you can, so that we can begin to see the changed Nigeria we are all clamoring for.
  20. 20. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
