Even though the youths make up over 60% of Nigeria’s population, youth participation in governance today is negligible. If democracy, rule of law and good governance will prevail in Nigeria, the majority of the populace, especially youths, need to be adequately informed and ready to play a vital role in demanding accountability and transparency in the most strategic ways possible. Increased youth participation will put more pressure on leadership to perform thereby deepening our democracy and spreading the dividends of democracy.
TIENigeria is a non partisan, youth-based organization that champions the information of Nigerian youths on governance, facilitates strategic civic engagements and promotes peaceful youth-led calls for accountability and transparency in government, thereby improving governance in Nigeria today and nurturing future Nigerian leaders who have immersed themselves in constructive civic engagement.
