Social Media continues to play a crucial role in the political landscape of the entire world. Political Office holders (elected and appointed), political office campaigners, government department and agencies have utilized social media as a tool to lure and engage their constituents and individuals they render service to. The National Assembly has adapted technology in very significant ways – both chambers now have Twitter accounts and even the Senate live streams some of its sessions on Facebook.

Technology as a Policy Imperative: Spotlight on Public Officials who Leverage Technology is a panel session that will reiterate the importance of an uncensored country and explore:

  • How social media has affected the work of public officials.
  • How citizens can lobby for increased use of technology in government work.
  • Best practices for government officials to listen to citizens on how best to engage with technology.

Enough is Enough Nigeria (www.eie.ng) is a coalition of individuals and organizations committed to instituting a culture of good governance and public accountability in Nigeria through active citizenship.
