BudgIT, Enough is Enough Nigeria (EiE Nigeria) and Paradigm Initiative (PIN) will hold the fourth edition of the bi-annual pan-African New Media, Citizens and Governance Conference (NMCG) virtually on Thursday, November 26, 2020.
This was disclosed in a press statement issued by Akindeji Aromaye, Media Associate, EiE Nigeria on behalf of the CSO groups.
The conference themed ‘New Media & Voice: People, Action & Hashtags’ will discuss issues around Media Censorship and Freedom of Speech; New Media and Social Change; and Seeding Disinformation & Messing with our Minds.
According to the Senior Programme Manager, PIN, Adeboye Adegoke, “the conference is an important platform to discuss the implications of the increased adoption of technology as a result of the COVID19 pandemic on civic engagement.
“While citizens have embraced the use of digital platforms for engagements and many other positive uses, the political class have responded with a sense of insecurity, and are seeking to control the new media for its political convenience.”
