SMWLagos 2020:

We were live at Social Media Week Lagos hosting a conversation on the Social Media Bill. It was unanimously agreed by citizens that the government should kill the bill. 

The Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters have announced the public hearing on The Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulations; and for Related Matters Bill, 2019 (SB. 132) aka social media bill.

Senate Conference Room 022, Senate New building, National Assembly.
March 9th

Write a memo to the Committee stating #CancelSocialMediaBill. See template.

#OOTC on Radio

On #OOTCUyo, Utibe  Archibong of Policy  Alert and Princess Umoh of Development Research and Synergy Initiative (DERSI) discussed closing the gender inequality gap. Catch up on the conversation.

You can follow the conversations on the #OfficeOfTheCitizen radio programs in 3 states.

Never forget, the Office of the Citizen is the highest office in the land!

Tweet at @EiENigeria using #OfficeOfTheCitizen to be a part of the conversation.
