People are a key stakeholder in every democratic society and undermining the people’s voice is tantamount to inviting societal unrest and crisis. Participatory governance entails that citizens get involved by reporting civic issues observed within the society. It also means that the authority listens and takes prompt, appropriate, and adequate actions to address issues brought to their awareness. There has been the missing middle to make participatory governance happen in Nigeria.
TalkAmNaija is a social enterprise and largely a non-for-profit organisation. We are a team of young and very motivated people. We are concerned Nigerians aiming to contribute to our nascent democracy and promote an inclusive society. We are here to serve as the connection between the authorities and the people by providing factual evidence to support every reported issue via this platform in an authentic manner.

Empirical research has shown a correlation between good governance and economic growth. We hope that Nigeria becomes an inclusive society via participatory governance and experiences some economic turnaround. For example, there should be a drastic reduction in or total elimination of unnecessary money spent on conflict resolution, neglect, oversight and allied societal issues.
