Emefiele Must Go!

EiE, BudgIT and 14 entrepreneurs had earlier written an open letter to the Central Bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, demanding for his resignation. This is due to CBN’s foreign exchange policies which have grossly affected the growth of industries and the economy at large.

1st Volunteer Day in 2017

Our first Volunteer Day for 2017 took place last Saturday. It was a big success!
Volunteers came out to support our advocacy campaign. Lagos residents in the three senatorial districts were educated by the volunteers on how to engage their representatives and activate their #OfficeOfTheCitizen. Flyers containing contact details of Lagos Reps and next steps after the #OneVoiceNigeria protest were distributed.
A big thank you to all our volunteers!


There are vacancies for different positions at EiE Nigeria.
Have a great weekend!
