At the recently held TEDxLagos, Banky W delivers an in depth speech on how citizens can become more involved in nation building.
He explains that though it difficult enough to get a functional democracy working as it should, it’s even much more difficult to get anything done in a dysfunctional democracy.
As non-participants, we empower those who seek to circumvent the democratic processes and institutions and only grow the dysfunction, he says, adding that to reverse that is the responsibility of the citizen to get involved.
The star singer touches on a number of ways including making our voices count in our community.
