INTRODUCING THE NIGERIAN LIGHTHOUSE.....

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

I mentioned recently that a few bloggers are working on a new project. That project is the Nigerian Lighthouse and it is an initiative to use information and technology to foster democracy in Nigeria. To achieve this goal, Nigerian Lighthouse will rely on the collaborative power of Nigerians and particularly bloggers.

The Nigerian Proclamation was a first step towards achieving the stated goal. As you know, Nigerian bloggers successfully used their blogs to respond to the recent electoral process in hopes of encouraging improvement from our government. Nigerian Lighthouse aims to build upon the success of that project and continue to encourage collaboration as a tool to improve governance on the local, state and federal level.

We hope that you will be interested enough to wank to participate because this endeavour will require many hands doing many things. Forget that old adage that suggests that too many cooks in the kitchen is a bad thing. With today's technology and the skills and experience of Nigerians around the world, the only way to make Nigeria work will be for the many to unite into one. It is with this sense of purpose that Nigerian Lighthouse aims to proceed in bettering Nigeria.

So, please keep your eye on http://www.nigerianlighthouse.org/ as that will be our future home of the organization. We are currently making the website user friendly and trying to create a format where willing Nigerians and other individuals can join in the next step in making a change in Nigeria.

Thanks for your support and commitment. The road ahead will be difficult, but we will get through, together.

Are you sure that's what you mean to say? A Freudian slip I'm sure.
