#OfficeOfTheCitizen Hackathon

We expect to launch the #OfficeOfTheCitizen portal in October – “not every time rant; sometimes act!”

The portal will effectively integrate the efforts of active citizens and activists in order to produce well worked out responses to identified issues.

Would you like to help build the portal? Join the hackathon hosted by Budgit & PIN on Saturday, August 29th.

International Youth Day (#OfficeOfTheCitizen)

In line with marking the International Youth Day in 2015 (themed “Youth & Civic Participation”), we joined our partner, Youth Initiative for Advocacy Growth & Advancement (YIAGA) at an event honoured by President Buhari.

Top on the agenda for discussion at the forum was youth civic engagement, as well as the state of insecurity & accountability in the country.

Prior to the event, selected youth leaders held plenary to draft a Nigerian Youth Declaration which was well documented and consequently presented to President Buhari.
