Woohooo... it's weekend once again, are y'all ready for some fun engagement? I know you are just as much as I am.
As we all know, the Hive Naija Weekend Engagement is focused on promoting the togetherness of the Nigeria brethren together through engagement and it's also now concerned of the well being of each and everyone who is part of the engagement. Last week, this account was opened to make the engagement more personal and official you can find the INTRODUCTION POST to read more about the purpose and aim of this new account and also do well to follow the account so as to know when a post is made.
Last week, the topic was "Making this Engagement better and bigger" and we had some really great ideas and contributions.
Thank you all for your thoughtful contributions, let's keep them coming ya all.
Some months ago, I thought, I shared and I asked "Why don't we Chat on hive every Weekend?"
And you all said... YES
"Well, we won't be the first as there are some weekend engagement trends already on Hive! But this would be THE NIGERIAN VERSION!"
So are you ready?
I will drop a topic every Friday (Today's topic is below), share your thoughts on the matter, reply to someone else opinion, and interrogate the opinion if you like. Keep the discussion on. If you don't have anything to say about the topic. Just reply to someone else's comment.
Do all these in the comment section, as that is where it all goes down.
There are no further rules, please banter as you like, speak any Nigerian language (Igbo, Yoruba, pidgin, Efik), anything, as long as someone else can understand.
This week's engagement starts Immediately after you see this post and ends on Sunday at 11:59 pm.

TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION : PARADIGM SHIFT
I know some might be wondering what paradigm shift means, well in simple terms, it means doing something differently from the way it has always been.
So for this week, we want to know;
- What can you do differently to make our country better?
You can relate your answer to any situation you have experienced or someone you know, either ways just be creative and sincere with your response.
- Tell us, what have you tried doing differently but did not work out and why do you think it didn't work?
You can give answers to either of the questions or both, any how you want it, just do well to be creative and most especially do not feel obliged in any way. If you feel you don't have any thing to say as regards the topic of discussion that's also fine, after all we are here to discuss so you just have to read the responses of others and leave them a comment and let it go on and on.
Don't you think we are forgetting someone?... Well, I'm sure we are...
Oh yes before I forget, there are also prizes for those that did well to invite someone new to the party and also you that has done well to invite someone you are also not left behind because you didn't leave anyone behind. But wait... Not so fast, this time you have to be more intentional about your invite, yes that's right...you know what you benefit when you engage so why not let others know about it. In fact I will advise you look beyond the prize but look more to doing something different even for your Naija brethren by showing them the way here.
