RTF AD: The Cross River State Youth Citizen's Debate




Generational Voices (GenVoices) in partnership with Enough is Enough (EiE) and in collaboration with British Council will run a Citizens’ Debate on the upcoming elections in Nigeria. This will be facilitated through GenVoices’ conversational platform called GenTalks.

Much of the focus of the political process is on highfalutin rhetoric that the average citizen rarely connects to. The Citizens’ Debate is therefore created for young Nigerians to articulate and present their rationale for deciding which of the candidates to support. This spins the wheel to focus on the critical aspect of the governance process; the people.

This Citizens’ Debate is designed for supporters of the presidential/governorship candidates in Nigeria’s General Elections to articulate and present their rationale for deciding what candidate to support. It will be targeted at young audiences aged 18-35.
