After months and days of planning with series of technical hitches and breakdowns in communication and partnerships, I can heave a sigh of relieve that the Rural Youths Against Corruption project finally held successfully with a landmark impact and success story. This was achieved with the contribution of fellow GYAC Nigeria member Maxwell Ogaga, Mayokun Okelola, Sola Fagurosi and the rest of the team with the full support of the National Youth Service Corps NYSC. It's amazing that even in a rural community, several cases of corruption abound.
The event which took place at the Wushishi town hall in Wushishi rural Community of Niger state, Nigeria had about 85youths participants representing 5 rural communities.
The 3-day event was climaxed by the unveiling of the online software and platform to report cases of corruption http://aspspider.info/nigerianvoices/blog.aspx. This is a pilot template online software that was created to enable Nigerians report corruption issues via simple SMS from their mobile phones where ever they are. It was exhibited and test-run on a relative small scale where it effectiveness was proven beyond measures. An anticorruption blog platform www.nigerianvoicesaginstcorruption.com was as well officially unveiled through which the report platform can be easily accessed. This platform has enjoyed tremendous traffic flow just within the few days of it creation.
