LAGOS—Enough is Enough Nigeria (EIE), a non-governmental organization, is collaborating with Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND) ahead 2015 elections, to sensitize Nigeria youths to effectively engage politicians to tackle corruption, insecurity and lack of transparency.
Addressing newsmen in Lagos, Yemi Adamolekun, Executive Director, EIF, said that the “power of new media as a vehicle for a virtual political revolution with emphasis on social and political processes of governance cannot be overemphasized”.
She said: “New media has made it easier for citizens to make their voices heard and force government officials to respond.”
She urged the government to consider how to leverage on the use of information tools to ensure that more Nigerians are aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
This she said this is to ensure that elected and appointed officials are accountable to the people.
