Nigerians for Super Energy is a grassroots campaign aimed at supporting the need for energy in Nigeria and the sub region. 35% of all black people in the world need energy to improve their daily lives. We have two main goals:
1. 50,0000 MegaWatts in a well planned grid system.
2. 24 Refineries in a National/Publicly traded oil company with global reach.
We believe that Nigeria is a great country with potential and needs an electrical and fuel catalyst to unleash the African Tiger. Energy is the Alpha and Omega of civilisation!!!. We are asking for a strategic change in the way we have dealt with energy. The government should done everything in its power to provide energy and I bet you Nigerians will employ themselves in droves, when energy is what it used to be in the 70s. Thousands of Nigerians aboard will come home with funds to invest and employ people. Our cost of production will go down and we can start to compete with China and the rest of the world.
What is the campaign plan?
We need to share the believe that Nigeria can be great. We need to bring that optimism that we had in the 70s that we could rule the world. If you need an example look no further but to Donald Duke of Cross River State, in the last eight years he made believe out of the very pessimistic people of his state.
"DEMOCRACY is government for the most proactively vocal and organize people." The laws have to be changed and the more people that contact their elected official, spiritual and traditional leader and organizations the easier it will be to change our beloved fatherland. Mr. President cannot do it alone, he needs our support, goodwill and prayers. We ask you to spread the word to everyone you know or find their contact information (family, friends, acquaintances, elected officials, spiritual and traditional leaders, organizations, and comments to all news media, online forums and blogs) and tell them to do the same. We have been bless it is time we receive it.
The Campaign Plan has four main initiatives:
A: Spread the idea to the corners of the world
1.Launching a web site and forum to share our ideas.
2.Fund raising to advertise our ideas.
3.Advertise our ideas. Newspaper, billboard. On-line ads.
4.Have supporters and organizations wear ribbon, put ribbon on cars, house and bushiness.
5.Have concerts to support the call for Super Energy
B: Bring together our talents and stakeholders
1.Nigerians are the country with the greatest percentage graduate degree or higher according to Educational Attainment for Selected Ancestry Groups (Source: U.S. Bureau of the Census). I will bet you the same for most countries in which you have Nigerians living in great numbers. Our goal is to act as clearing house not just for the talent abroad but for all talents (home and aboard). The only requirement is wiliness to server the country. John F. Kennedy said it better “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for u country.
2.Bring all the stakeholders together to accomplish our goals. In a document “Stakeholders of Nigeria's Energy Rise” we strategically redefine the stakeholders in the energy sector to include Every citizen, The Federal government and pedestals, The National Assembly, State government, Local governments, Unions, Bankers, Investors, and The News Media.
C: Campaign to change the laws to deliver our goals
Laws are very important to implementation of our goals. Mr. President has restated that and rightly so.
Laws the let investors and all other stakeholders the rule of the game and creates even field for the betterment of the people of Nigeria is our ultimate goal.
D: Monitoring the implementation of the goals
When Mr. President signs the FOI bill (Free of Information) the job of monitoring projects will be a lot easier. This will include making sure all the stakeholders are in agreement and the best team is on the job. The other things will be to make sure the critical time lines are met in including funding and environmental concerns. The environment should be taken care of by the latest technology out there.
