My first featured Quotes will come from the speech by #ProfPeterLewis -Director of African Studies and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). #DemocracyDay2020 #FixPolitics @fixpoliticsnig @BoschAcademy

Today, I shall kickstart the promise made in the week to tweet key highlights of our Distinguished Speakers at the February conference of #FixPolitics @fixpoliticsnig . On a day like this, #DemocracyDay I find no more spot-on wisdom than some key highlights of their speeches.

How does #FixPolitics concern you? Is that what you are asking? Worried about deteriorating state of the Economy, #FixPolitics concerns you. Angry at #CultureOfImpunity that fuels #RampantKillings in Southern Kaduna and other places, #FixPolitics concerns you. #RapePandemic, yes.

If you care about the root causes of Nigeria’s intractable Governance Failures and its root in the nature of our perverse political culture and incentives then look out here for #KeyQuotes from Prof Lewis’ speech at our @fixpoliticsnig Conference. #CountDownToJune12. #FixPolitics

@eanuoluwatomiwa @fixpoliticsnig Sorry, dear but the #FixPolitics conference was in February. Please check out @fixpoliticsnig for more. Blessings.

Proffesor Peter Lewis’ most recent book, Growing Apart: Politics and Economic Change in Indonesia and Nigeria is concerned with the institutional basis of economic development, drawing upon a comparative study. Peter knows a lot about Nigeria’s history and politics. #FixPolitics.

Professor Peter Lewis’ work focuses on economic reform and political transition in developing countries, with particular emphasis on governance and development in Sub-Saharan Africa. He has written extensively on democratic reform and political economy in Nigeria. #FixPolitics.

I will use #CountDownToJune12 #FixPolitics to tweet the Quotes of our outstanding speakers at the February @fixpoliticsnig Conference hosted by @BoschAcademy . Our Guest Speakers were truly engaging and offered knowledge, wisdom and counsel that are helping steer our programs.

Quoted @Sabya_K

8. So, together with the legal, regulatory and other institutional reforms that Ajay stresses, unless there are reforms in political funding, these institutional weaknesses and poor state capacity will not be eradicated.

Agree that politics is more broken than economics. It will take more than electoral financing reforms to #FixPolitics. Start w a political party law a al the company act. https://t.co/eDAARol9S6

@funmioyatogun @fixpoliticsnig A minimum threshold of effective Public Governance that enables Citizens and Business is central to all prosperous societies. We’ve lacked that. The root is “a political culture that subordinates Collective Interest to Private Gain”. We must #FixPolitics for Good Governance.

Quoted @funmioyatogun

Dear Mdme @obyezeks, I'm a 28 year old Nigerian who wants progress and justice. Nigeria is not working for me or anyone I know. Nigeria is actively abusive. Please, in what ways can people like me contribute to real change in 2023, irrespective of party alignment? Regards, F.

When the Citizens are ready, they will Design the Democracy and Governance system that best serves us. Nobody nor group of persons will #FixPolitics for our Citizens. It is the Citizens’ Duty to correct anomalies. When Citizens are ready, our Democracy will truly happen. ✍🏾

Someone tapped me this afternoon and said "whatever makes a country's Presidential address becomes a breaking news, you should know that country is gone"! I was weak. 

Then to satisfy my curiosity, I typed into Google. "Failed countries of the world"...

@ChineEzeks Never! Yesterday evening was a vibe! From presentations and contributions during the #FixPolitics forum to our journey to get new flowers for @AkankaDesign Studio 33. Vibes on vibes on vibes!!! Can't wait to showcase how we've been designing nature. 🌿🐚🐧🐟🌻🌺🍀🌸🌼🌷🥀🏵🌹

Quoted @philiptelu

@ObmMr @AbdulMahmud01 I think Joe Abah lost this one. His comparism seems rather unfortunate. What was Joe's advice to GEJ administration when the Orosanye report was lying 3years on GEJ's table.

Will we ever know? And if we know, would it make any difference? Nigeria needs every one right now to #FixPolitics and push for institutional reforms such as #ElectoralReform to include internal democracy at party levels and stop the violence during elections. https://t.co/34A7vSjLIY

@obyezeks Nigeria will choose a government worse than the current one in 2023 and I can comfortably bet on that and go to bed. So Democratic politics is fundamentally people centred. And the dubious democracy of Naija brand is proudly aided and abetted by we Nigerians. #FixPolitics

@obyezeks A very big obstacle to me and my people #FixPolitics
