Introducting WomeninPoliticsNG (WinP-NG)

WomeninPoliticsNG (WinP-NG) was established to engage, encourage, equip and empower women especially young women to get involved and participate in Politics.

 

WinP-NG strongly believes that the overall development of Nigeria is directly linked to the number of women in politics. The more women occupy political positions that enables them drive policy, the more they can contribute to improving education, healthcare, economic independence and improved livelihoods for all in general.

 

With the national average of women’s participation in Politics at 6.7% since 1999 when the Country became a democratic nation; WomeninPoliticsNG’s vision is to increase women’s participation in politics in Nigeria to 50% by 2050.

 

WinP-NG aims to do this by:

*Engaging: This will be done through mediums online and offline. Mediums will include radio, TV, conversation cafe’s e.t.c.

*Encourage: Use appropriate data to educate women why they must get involved. Recognise and showcase outstanding WinP. This will be done through interview chronicles and data derived from research. Read more

North East #Nigeria need Nigerians. My holiday in #Maiduguri by Kayode Ogundamisi (@ogundamisi)

I have been spending some days and nights in Borno and visited a number of places. Today I visited a couple of #IDP camps in and around Maiduguri.

It is a shame that thousands of Children are in a hopeless situation. The conditions in the camps can be better than it is.

The brave men and women who volunteer in the camps are working tirelessly but feel frustrated. I particularly feel ashamed that we are still letting vulnerable Nigerians down.

Whatever you can do as an individual please take time off to visit Borno. Let us defy the insurgents. The people here are friendly, determined and resilient. For every stranger they see, they see hope. I am happy I am spending my holiday here and my hard earned money in Borno State.

Every naira I spend here will contribute to the economy of a neglected people. We are Nigerians. We need to do more for our people.

The Buhari government should send honest; transparent and fair people to take stock and give genuine feedback to eliminate corruption. If we don’t take care of those traumatised children, enclosed in camps some as large as over 19 thousand displaced persons. If we turn our back on them, they will come to hunt us tomorrow.

What can be done? Volunteer with NEMA, Red Cross, Doctors Without Border or any other agencies. Put pressure on the Buhari government and Borno government to do more. Visit Borno if you can, we now have daily flights into #Maiduguri airport. Let us help our own. I am enjoying my stay here and tapping into the strength of the people of Borno who say for all Boko Haram bombs they won’t abandon their homeland.

Regards.

Kayode Ogundamisi

Introducing ADOPT-A-CAMP @AdoptCamp

About Adopt-A-Camp
Adopt Logo

The Adopt-A-Camp project was birthed in view of the growing number of Internally Displaced Persons in Nigeria. This increase has been largely due to the recent spate of insurgency in Nigeria which leaves many dead or injured, and several displaced.?

Adopt-A-Camp Trailer (Full documentary coming soon).

?Adopt-A-Camp seeks to complement ongoing efforts in assisting IDPs through an holistic support framework. This will be achieved by seeking and gathering assistance from well-meaning individuals and credible organizations, who wish to contribute their quota, no matter how small, to ensure IDPs have better living standard while anticipating an end to insurgency so they (IDPs) can either return to their homes or reintegrate well into their host communities.
