#EkitiDecides: Enough is Enough Nigeria hosts Televised Debate for Candidates

“Of all the institutions of a democratic society, there’s none as
formidable as an awakened and conscious citizenry.” – Shehu Sanni

Ekiti’s governorship election on Saturday June 21, 2014 kicks of the
2014/2015 election season.
Enough is Enough Nigeria (EiE Nigeria), a coalition of young Nigerians
promoting good governance and citizen engagement will host a live
televised debate for three of the leading candidates on Sunday, June 1,
2014.

This continues EiE’s tradition of hosting youth-focused debates, having
co-hosted the first youth-focused presidential debate in the country in
2011. It has since hosted debates in Cross River and Anambra (in
partnership with Channels TV).

There are 18 candidates vying for the position of Governor and the four
leading candidates were invited to participate in the debate: incumbent
governor Kayode Fayemi, of the All Progressives Congress (APC); former
governor Ayo Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); Opeyemi
Bamidele of the Labour Party (LP); and Accord Party flagbearer, Kole
Ajayi.


Mr Fayose of PDP declined to participate in the debate.

Candidates are expected to make public their plans for Ekiti youth with
special focus on education, security, power supply and
employment/enterprise.

The debate will be aired live on EKTV, NTA Ekiti & TVC.

  5. Hi, I’m not a research scientist, I am an artist. But having said that, I began focusing my diploma year of fine art studies on plastic ingestion by bird and marine species (pelicans, turtles etc). If you have an email address I can email you images of the work I created. The previous year I focused on marine by-catch that died as a result of long-line fishing. I have a particular interest in this and spend a lot of time reading about plastic pollution worldwide. I actually discovered your organisation during the course of my research and have wanted to get involved for a long time. I would really like to get hands on experience to fully appreciate the scale of the problem so that I can communicate this more effectively in my next body of work. I am in Australia, so I guess the first step is to see if there is even a spot available for someone without a scientific background. And then work out costs etc.
