Also, the former Head of State, General Ibrahim B. Babangida had something to say about the ''Change Begins with me'' Campaign.#ChangeBeginsWithMe but it took you 7 months to appoint an ICT Min who wants to produce pencils and a Sports Min who redefines unfortunate.— Kaelo A (@_Kaelo_) September 8, 2016
The #ChangeBeginsWithMe campaign is a great initiative. I think it should start from the Federal Government, and most importantly the NASS.— Ibrahim B. Babangida (@General_Ibbro) September 8, 2016
