This Saturday, Edo residents will go to the polls to elect Local Government Chairmen in the 18 local governments in the State.
On Monday & Tuesday, we trained over 200 CSO volunteers in Benin & Auchi on using #Revoda to observe the elections. As part of the day’s activities, we also showed #FuellingPoverty (full story below)!
On Saturday, Premium Times broke the story that the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) declined permission for Ishaya Bako to air and distribute his 30 minute documentary on greed & corruption in Nigeria – Fuelling Poverty.
The reason given was that the contents “are highly provocative and likely to incite or encourage public disorder and undermine national security.”
Views on Youtube have jumped from 17,512 on Saturday to 42,726 this morning.
In addition to the narrative on greed & corruption, it also tells part of the story of #OccupyNigeria. We encourage people to show it in small groups, churches, mosques, workshops, seminars, town hall meetings.
