RestoreNaija is a civic intiative started by DIGA, an NGO founded in early 2019 by a Nigerian Masters graduate in Urban Economic Development from UCL's Development Planning Unit, Christian Elemele, his former lecturer, Dr. Naji Makarem and Ijeoma Chukwuma.
They believe that a better Nigeria is possible and that digital blockchain voting is the first step to good governance.
Since then they have been attracting people and organisations to join this peaceful civic initiative for free and fair digital elections in Nigeria by 2023.
Leading civil society organisations have since joined the board of DIGA in support of RestoreNaija, and are working in collaboration with ORACLE and DataCrest to develop a trusted, tamper-proof platform for Nigeria - a platform developed by Nigerians for Nigerians!
Founding Partners RestoreNaija Initiative:
While all our work has been voluntary, DFID (the UK Government Department for International Development in Nigeria) and the Development Planning Unit at the Bartlett School at University College London (UCL) have offered us a small grant to fund our Digital Voting Summit on the 18th November 2019.
WE continue to persevere and will succeed, as we continue to invest our voluntary time and efforts to make this dream a reality!
If your organisations would like to fund this worthy cause for free and fair digital elections in Nigeria by 2023 please get in touch, we and all Nigerians would really appreciate your support!
Nigerians in Nigeria and the Diaspora
We are growing a popular movement in support of free and fair digital elections in Nigeria by 2023. With your support we can change electoral laws and oversee the development of a trusted blockchain voting platform that will insure free, fair, safe and inclusive general elections in 2023. This will be Nigeria's first ever elections where people feel safe to vote from the comfort and security of their own homes (whether in Nigeria or abroad), knowing their votes will be counted. This we believe is the only way to bring about accountability and good governance and to restore confidence in government institutions. Together we can bring about positive change peacefully.
