A non-governmental organization under the aegis of Coalition for Good Governance and Economic Justice in Africa (CGGEJA) has rolled out plans to help promote the educational programmes of the Edo State Government through social media.
Jude Gadimoh, Country Executive Director of CGGE said the group would engage students of tertiary institutions in Edo State to become digital ambassadors for Governor Godwin Obaseki’s educational policies andprogrammes in the state.
Gadimoh who noted that the students would be engaged by raising them as “Digital Ambassadors” said the program was being done in collaboration with the Edo State Governor’s office of Digital Communication.
“CGGEJA is a non-governmental organisation committed to promoting sound governance and progressive administration of resources in Africa. In addition to this, one of the coalition’s major principles is to support equity in distribution of wealth among people in Nigeria and Africa.
“The aim of creating the #EdoDigiAmbassador campaign is to reach out to Edo students’ online communities in various tertiary institutions across the state to join in using the social media to propagate and promote good governance”, he said.
He described the #EdoDigiAmbassador social media as the most innovative group approach to engaging the Student Community, to discuss and share ideas on how the government can implement key planks of the Obaseki’s administration.
Gadimoh posited that the group would give a platform for three successful candidates to become the Digital Ambassador for CGGEJA and the opportunity to undertake social representation across the state.
He said to become a digital ambassador for the group prospective students are required to post on Facebook or tweet topics based on any of the Educational policy of Governor Obaseki’s reforms in Edo State.
