The rights we enjoy online have opened up new prospects and expand the boundaries of opportunities in our world. An attempt to limit those rights will inadvertently limit the opportunities and prospects that the online space offers us. The event will awaken the consciousness of participants on need to be the watch(wo)men of the Nigerian digital space, as we can’t afford to leave the huge task with few activists and advocates.
