According to Mrs Oby Ezekwesili,she said “In establishing the centrality of purpose, you must define the reason from inside yourself, the reason outside yourself why you have chosen to be part of this movement. You are a threatened generation and I need you to get involved, you have to understand the tenets of democracy, you have been born into a nation that has been ravaged by the military, the whole nation has been militarized, The society continues to believes that the military approach will be used to solve the problem. It is this generation , that you must understand that the most importance office in democracy is not the legislative, the judiciary but the office of the citizen. It is the citizen that must be informed, the citizen that must not be deformed,it is  the citizen that must believe that the society exist for himself and for others”
