Enough is Enough Nigeria to host Cross River’s First Youth-Focused Gubernatorial Debate

“We have a few questions for our next chief public servant!” Enough is Enough Nigeria to host Cross River’s First Youth-Focused Gubernatorial Debate

On Saturday, February 25th, Cross Riverians will have the opportunity to vote for its next Executive Governor. Following the success of last year’s What About Us? Debate – Nigeria’s First Youth-Focused Presidential Debate; Enough is Enough Nigeria will partner with Afterschool Peer Mentoring Program to host Cross River’s First Youth-Focused Gubernatorial Debate.
The last governor and PDP flag-bearer, Liyel Imoke has given a tentative confirmation while Imah Nsa Adegoke (LP), Usani Usani (ACN), Patrick Okomiso (ANPP) have all confirmed their attendance.
Nigeria’s 2006 Census figures show that over 70% of Nigeria’s population is under 30. It is estimated that over 65% of registered voters nationally are under 35. In this time, elections at all tiers of government have to be about us, Nigeria’s youth: Nigeria’s present; Nigeria’s future. Therefore, we firmly believe that any individual who desires to serve as chief public servant of the State should engage this demographic.

The debate will be a direct conversation with young Nigerians in Cross River on the following topics: Education; Health; Poverty, Job & Wealth Creation; Security; Environment (Oil spills) and Infrastructure. Questions will be posed by young Nigerians, at home and abroad, via social media networks including Facebook and Twitter, video blog, text message and email. The debate will be live on Cross River State Broadcasting Corporation (CRBC) and streamed online.

Details of the debate are as follows:
Venue: Main Bowl, Cultural Centre Complex, Calabar
Date: Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Time: 4 pm. Live streaming begins at 5 pm.
Moderator: Chude Jideonwo
