2023: US Backs Voters’ Anti Apathy Campaign In Nigeria

Must read

The United States Government, through its Embassy in Nigeria, has thrown its weight behind Vote023 Initiative to curb voter apathy in the 2023 general elections.

It was reported that Vote023 Initiative is a non-partisan incentive-driven voice call campaign to make Nigerians conscious of their civic responsibility.

Mrs Angela Ochu-Baiye, a Mandela Washington Fellow and Lead Collaborator in the Vote023 project, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Lagos.

Ochu-Baiye said that the embassy affirmed its support in a Federal Assistance Award notice on Dec. 15 to the project conceived by Emeka Mba, a Tech Entrepreneur and Founder of Emergent Labs.

Ochu-Baiye said: “The Vote023 Team is delighted that the US Embassy in Nigeria is partnering with us to get our messages out to thousands of Nigerians via our IVR messages recorded in English, Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and Pidgin.

“We are abundantly appreciative of their support and it will go a long way in helping to achieve the project goals.”
