Enough is Enough (EiE) Nigeria (aka The EiE Project) was set up as the next step from two citizens’ protests in 2010 on our missing President, killings in Jos & fuel scarcity – March 16 protest to the National Assembly & April 13 protest to the Lagos State Governor. Based on the mobilization done for the protests, it started as a loose network of individuals and organizations committed to changing the dynamics of accountability to citizens by public officials. The protests were organized primarily via email, SMS, Twitter, Blackberry Messenger and Facebook. It was the beginning of what would be EiE’s heavy reliance on technology as a tool of education, engagement and mobilization.
EiE began operations in January 2011 with grants from Omidyar Network and MacArthur Foundation. It was formally registered in July 2012. In its 9 years as a formal organisation, EiE has been managed by an average of 6 staff members, yet its impact has been felt in Nigeria and on the African continent.
EiE’s flagship campaign is R|S|V|P – Register | Select | Vote NOT Fight | Protect. It is a play on the popular acronym and the idea is that the four letters represent the activities young people, and indeed all Nigerians, need to complete to positively impact governance in Nigeria.
Technology is our tool of choice as it’s less expensive; it’s uncensored and it has the potential to positively infuence Nigeria’s largest voting demographic – those between 18 and 35 years old.
We shall consistently evolve processes that enhance citizen engagement and good governance.
We believe in the potential of young people to shape Nigeria’s destiny.
We cannot reach every young Nigerian, so we have decided to leverage the power of technology to reach as many as we can. Therefore, our audience is every Nigerian with access to technology – the internet and mobile phones, and to a lesser degree, television and radio.
