In a bid to stem the growth of corruption in Nigeria, group reaches out to Nigerian youth.
Nigeria’s premier anti-corruption civic group, Integrity, says it has completed plans to engage the country’s youth population in a fight against graft and corruption.
Soji Apampa, the Executive Director of Integrity, disclosed this in Abuja, Monday, when he led a three-person team to PREMIUM TIMES to review an ongoing partnership agreement between the two parties.
“We are signing in young people in record numbers to benefit from a free social media training that will entail them to engage in a quest through which they can earn loyalty points as they work hard to build traffic towards their chosen thematic cause,” Mr. Apampa said.
The young people also earn cash in relation to the loyalty points they are able to build in the course of their quest, Mr. Apampa explained, adding that this programme is just one of the many activities Integrity plans to roll out this year.
He gave high remarks to the partnership with PREMIUM TIMES, saying it has helped to draw significant attention to the online corruption reporting portal (egunje.info), sponsored by his organisation and promoted by PREMIUM TIMES.
“The growth rate of visitors to the site has jumped up by 93 per cent on account of the unique platform offered by PREMIUM TIMEs,” Mr. Apampa said.
Dapo Olorunyomi, who received the guests on behalf of PREMIUM TIMES, said the paper was proud of the partnership and praised Integrity for its vision of a graft-free society.
Mr. Olorunyomi said with over 23million monthly eyeballs on the paper’s online site, the partnership could only grow larger.
Mr. Apampa was accompanied by Ms. Patricia Ekpo, a senior programme officer, and Ms. Grace Kyura, a legal officer.
