Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want an electoral system in Nigeria that is mainly driven by information technology where people can vote for the political Leader of their choice in a convenient, orderly and free manner under a voting system that is objective and reliable.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want a world where political leaders' entrance or continuous stay in power is at the mercy of the people they serve. This is the best way of being accountable to the people.
I want a world where leaders are fully attentive and concern about what their followers want.
I want a world where human development is the main goal of government.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by citizens of Nigeria who are poor and voiceless. The youths, the women and the disadvantaged sections of the Nigerian population.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Influence the creation of a legislative bill to promote the digitization of the Nigerian electoral system
Creation of awareness about the benefits of a digitized voting system through the mass media.
Work with election monitoring/support groups to pressure government into digitizing the Nigerian voting system.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The activities that are ongoing within the political space to effect the digitization of the voting system in Nigerian elections.
The efforts within the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to convert from the manual method of voting to a digital platform.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
