EnoughisEnough Nigeria to launch campaign for 2015 - #RSVP2015
EnoughisEnough (EiE) Nigeria has announced the date for an event to
formally kick off its projects and campaign towards the 2015 General
Elections in Nigeria. The media and partners event holds on Monday, 29
April in Ikeja, Lagos.
“The electoral process is at the heart of our work and we have spent
the last two years building tools and networks to deepen youth
engagement in governance,” said the administrator of EnoughisEnough
Nigeria, Yemi Adamolekun. “We’ve been active in all gubernatorial
elections and some local government elections since 2011 and learnt
lessons from Ghana and Kenya. With the current state of the nation, 2015
will be an important milestone in Nigeria’s history. As such, we are
focused on organising the youth vote to be effective and
transformational and also want to communicate numbers that the youth
vote must count.”
Highlights of the event include the formal launch of the organisation’s
countdown to the 2015 General Elections, details of its engagement with
partners and stakeholders, as well as showcasing the technology tools
that foster citizen education and engagement.
The technology tools to be showcased include Revoda, the election
monitoring mobile app launched in 2011 as well as the crowd sourcing
platform, shineyoureye.org. EiE’s partners will also showcase their
projects like CLP’s Reclaimnaija.net.
All EiE activities are anchored on its official election campaign,
R|S|V|P (Register|Select|Vote|Protect), which was launched in 2010.
The event will be streamed live on the official website
www.eienigeria.org, and will be live blogged with the hashtag #RSVP2015
through its Twitter handle @EiENigeria.
