The #lightupnigeria campaign - to the best of my knowledge - began a few days ago when eLDee (the artiste) almost lost a relative in a hospital during childbirth. He then put up a tweet on how the lack of electricity led to an increase in maternal/infant mortality.

From there, events have snowballed with people expressing their similar disgust at the crippling effects of power cuts, some of which you have so beautifully illustrated here.

As I type this, the awareness still blossoms on Twitter... Let's go there and #lightupnigeria!!!

The revolution shall not be violent but a change can and will come if we stand and do not waiver in our drive to once and for all #lightupnigeria for our generation and not just our children's generation.

Where did the logo you're using on your twitter come from? I think it could/should be our logo as we campaign to #lightupnigeria!

Thanks for sharing this very important info. It was articulate and well written as usual.

This is a great campaign. Do you know that company like Cadbury now want to relocate to Ghana cuz of power failure and bad infrastructure?
