As a person of some intelligence and moral standing, I incline to the view that I was brought on this earth not only to speak for myself but also for those who are unable to speak for themselves in the face of difficulties and injustice. Therefore, I would take it as my duty to speak through different means about issues in the society.
Notably, speaking about affairs and issues affecting the society should not be viewed as inciting some people against others or a disobedience of the status quo. Therefore, I believe in the voice of the people to highlight the plight of other people in any nation. Although in the past the responsibility of speaking for the people has been a preserve of the media, the emergence of the social media platforms has given all the people an opportunity to speak for others.

Interestingly, I am no exception of such category of people and that is why I believe that I should speak for those who are unable to speak for themselves. I do believe that through speaking someone somewhere listens and a change may occur. Yes I believe in the power of the word through social media.I refuse to accept the backward notion that speaking about issues that affect the society through the social media amounts to attacking the government in unruly manner. I stick to my belief that nations can achieve equality in delivery of services to the public if every user of the social media takes it upon themselves to highlight the …
