Nigerian governance advocacy group, Enough is Enough (EiE), has announced its ‘Office of the Citizen Hackathon’ to create an effective platform for citizens to discuss and address governance shortfalls in Nigeria.

The goal of hackathon is to “give techies space to create a platform that’ll allow citizens to not only vent about issues that are important to them but also provide a space for citizens and organisations to collaborate to solve problems,” EIE convener, Yemi Adamolekun, told TechCabal.

The hackathon is open to pretty much anyone  including, funders, CSOs and techies; developer and designers. The organization is looking to have a portal up by the end of the day.

Date: August 29, 2015

Venue: BudgIT office, 3rd floor,13 Hughes Avenue Alagomeji, Yaba Lagos
