Office of the Citizen Hackathon 2.0 - Not Everytime Rant; Sometimes ACT!

Hosted by CcHUB in collaboration with BudgIT and Paradigm Initiative, the 3-day hackathon had 5 mixed–teams of software designers, developers, programmers and active citizens working together to develop platforms and solutions to improve citizen engagement. The ‘MedPolice’ team who designed a platform for citizens to report cases of medical negligence, won!

The 3 finalists showcased their solutions during the demo session at #SMWLagos.
