We are a youth run organization dedicated to the sole objective of advocating and promoting good governance at all levels in Nigeria. We approach the issues of good governance through the channels of inclusivity and strong institutions through policy research and advocacy.
The many issues confronting Nigeria today do not stray far from leadership capability and the almost total breakdown of due process in institutions of government. We live in a nation where leaders emerge because they can and not because they are prepared and or aware of the challenges of leadership with a vision to confront and provide solutions to those challenges. The result thus far has been a convolution of any-thing goes and make-it-up-as-we-go approach to nation building that has had devastating consequences for citizens; who are also poorly aware of their power and responsibility in a democracy and the state as a whole as casualties in a system that seem to be running on unto pilot.
The missing link we believe has been a synergy between the ruled and the rulers, a kind of mutual relationship where each party know what they are getting and offering. Our mission therefore is to engage with decision makers and citizens on both their power and responsibilities and also to amplify the issues that keep us from developing and attempt to proofer solutions.
We believe citizens have the right to be represented well as much as they have the responsibility to create an environment that makes democracy possible. With this awareness we also amplify the voices of a more diverse pool of leaders to choose from to the electorates.
