The Office of The Citizen (OOTC) is a campaign launched by EiE as part of its 5th year anniversary activities in April 2015 to educate Nigerians on their rights and responsibilities. A Hackerthon event was held to develop the Office of the Citizen portal.

Office of the Citizen: Demo of the Office of the Citizen portal demonstrates the use of the app developed during the hackathon with a moderated feedback / critique / Q & A session by participants.

After this session participants will:

  • Understand better how they can use technology to engage governance issues productively.
  • Believe more in their power to drive change.
  • Strengthen the community of technology professionals working on civic issues.

OOTC places citizens at the heart of governance as we believe that the ‘Office of the Citizen’ is the highest office in the country – superior to any government office as citizens have the power to determine the direction of governance.

Are you interested in taking action on issues as an individual, community or organisation? Have you identified an area you want to focus on? It could be water, power, access to education, trafficking from rural to urban centers, environmental hazards e.t.c. With the OOTC app, you will learn how to

  • Take action if it’s something that’s within their sphere of influence to effect change;
  • Reach out to an organization working on the same issue and offer to volunteer, share some expertise, provide useful information or any other way that will help achieve the objective;
  • Connect with other active citizens interested in the same issue and collaborate on a plan of action.

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.
