what has really changed?

A lot has changed since May 29.

The fight against corruption is very actively being pursued on the front pages of newspapers and on news headlines, largely.

A system of establishing guilt and conviction before trial is being trial-tested. Someone is reading “The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland” and  trying to apply some of the bizarre happening there to real life situations.

Nigerians are beginning to discover that all the rotters and knaves in this country belong to only one political party. The other party is peopled by Knights and saints. Never mind if some of principal characters in this club of saints were in this club of looters, knaves, rotters and robbers just not too long ago. Crossing over a line of defection has more cleansing and whitening power than the River Jordan had in biblical times.

The price of crude oil has changed and some die-hard government loyalists can’t still make up their minds whether or not to blame GEJ for this.

The Dollar-Naira exchange rate has worsened and the blame for this must be placed where it belongs.  Blame GEJ, the man from Otueke.

Our theory of change (ToC, also called the logic model) was revised to allow for creative flexibility and damn outright obsequiousness in our efforts to explain some observed positive changes – body language is now being ascribed more explanatory powers.

A lot has changed indeed. Change is happening!
