Yesterday or day before, it was in the news that the Governor of Delta State, Gov. Uduaghan, has decided to take up the case of Okeoghene. Reports have it that actions to save this young man's life have started in earnest and he will soon be on his way to India where he will have access to some really good medical care.

That is good news.

It is good to know that Nigerian youth are gradually pulling their weight and leveraging on social media to coordinate and direct our efforts, and even better to know that our words are backed by actions. Before Gov. Uduaghan decided to step in, Nigerians had raised N2M for Oke already. I feel proud to have been a part of this move, and I feel proud to have contributed to a cause larger than my daily routine.

Also, I'd like to give it up for Linda Ikeji - the most influential Nigerian blogger of our time. Her post on Oke made sure his story was heard across Nigeria. Respect!

We are the world.
