Civil society group; Enough is Enough Nigeria (EiE) announces a call for applications to “Hacking the Nigeria Code” – a nine-week online course to help connect the dots about our dear country Nigeria. The course covers a diverse set of topics including, National Questions in National Conferences; Causes & Consequences of Systemic Corruption; Historical Antecedents; and The World Around Us. The sessions will be facilitated by ten thought-leading Nigerians including Ayisha Osori, Femi Falana (SAN), Kunle Soriyan, Oby Ezekwesili and Sam Adeyemi.
Speaking on the course and what EiE hopes to achieve with it, the Executive Director, ‘Yemi Adamolekun said, “There’s a lot about fixing a country that we assume without understanding the core issues with ourselves as individuals and the nation as a system. This course will bring many of those aspects together so that participants get a deeper understanding of the fundamentals; otherwise, we will keep complaining and misdirecting efforts, while Nigeria continues to malfunction.”
When the #OfficeOfTheCitizen campaign launched in 2015, EiE began the transition from being the main driver of citizens’ action to supporting citizens to walk their talk! Over the next decade, EiE is committed to supporting citizens take action in their individual capacities with the #OnePerson campaign.
The application portal – www.eie.ng/hackngcode – opened on Wednesday, August 5th. The registration fee is N1,000 (one thousand naira) and only 60 successful applicants will be selected to mark Nigeria’s 60 years of independence. Each successful applicant will pay an additional N50,000 (fifty thousand naira) as a commitment fee.
