Enough is Enough (EiE) Nigeria is partnering Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN) and BudgIT will on Wednesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 27 hold conference on New Media, Citizens & Governance in Abuja.
This year’s conference will build on this with a particular focus on ‘citizen’ as the bridge between the new media tools and governance outcomes.
The conference will open with a welcome address by Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, an avid Twitter user and the Governor of Kaduna State; and a keynote address by Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Education and a fierce advocate of the ‘Office of the Citizen’.
EiE first co-hosted a New Media and Governance Conference in 2012 to bring together policy makers, civil society, academic institutions, private sector, and youth to explore the use of new media for improved governance, accountability and civic engagement.
Panel sessions include Advocacy and New Media; New Media and National Orientation; Social Media Conduct 101: Thou Shalt Not Gaffe to mention just a few. Our headline sponsors Facebook and Google will be active participants in the conference.
