Draft Press Statement
The Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) has challenged social media influencers in Nigeria to use the information and data contained in the NEITI industry reports to sensitise Nigerians on extractive industries governance issues.

carThe Executive Secretary of NEITI, Mr. Waziri Adio made the call at a workshop organised by NEITI in collaboration with Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) titled “The Role Of The New Media In Reporting The Extractive Sector” held in Abuja for social media influencers  in its bid to push the frontiers of engagement.
Mr. Adio explained that many Nigerians have little or no knowledge of oil, gas and mining issues, the NEITI and EITI process and how these issues affect their daily lives.

The Executive Secretary observed that public education, information and enlightenment were necessary to explain to the people how the extractive industry works and why poor management of revenues from the sector has contributed to poverty in Nigeria in the midst of plenty.
He stated that for Nigerians to be mobilised to hold the government to account, both the mainstream and new media must support NEITI and the role it has to play in the extractive value chain, through the crafting of innovative messages targeted at educating and enlightening the diverse stakeholder groups.

He lamented that having earned over $545Billion from the oil and gas sector alone in 15 years, the huge revenue has not transformed the life of the average Nigerian for the better, adding that contrary to popular opinion, natural resources have been a blessing to the Nigerian state but “the mismanagement of revenues from the sector that make it look like curses to the people. It is to change the status quo and reverse the notion of resource curse that brought NEITI into existence. We implore you to as influencers in your spheres of influence to support NEITI’s by using our outputs which are the audit reports, policy briefs, quarterly reviews and other publications  to develop content for your various platforms”.

Participants drawn from different areas of the new media were taken through knowledge and skills based modules to enhance their understanding of the subject matter. They also created interactive messages, using infographs and infograms to tell the NEITI story, while the resource persons gave interesting insights into the on-going reforms in the extractive sector through “storifying” natural resource governance messages.
The workshop was well attended by Social Media influencers drawn from across the country.

    I sing in a choir cialis prix en pharmacie qubec In fact, the Coons-Isakson personal and professional relationship was referred to by some as a badly divided Senate's version of the Odd Couple, two men steeped in very different political philosophies and backgrounds coming together for support of U.S.-Africa relations. The Coons-Flake relationship may also be a very strong one. If so, look for strong coordinated support for U.S.-Africa relations in the Senate over the next two years. There will be serious political differences between other members of the committee, but with a Democratic majority and a jointly progressive leadership on Africa, the continent should expect its strongest support ever from the U.S. Senate.

    I'm on business acheter amoxicilline en france It's hard to imagine that Carell – known for characters who are benevolent to the point of sheepishness – can play such a jerk. His performance is certainly a testament to his versatility, but also knocks you over the head at times – a little ambiguity would have been appreciated. James plays Duncan's journey from misery to the point of immobilization, to a burgeoning sense of self, with respectful restraint. The rest of the cast's performances are similarly on point.

    I've got a part-time job Hersman said an examination of the wreckage showed that the auto-throttle was "armed," but it was not clear if it had been properly engaged or had somehow failed before the plane slowed to a near-stall and hit the ground. "We need to understand a little better" how the auto-throttle is used, she said.

    Good crew it's cool :) It's a second for Wayne Routledge and the first four letters of his surname could be a hint at what's in store tonight. Michu started the move, winning a tackle in the centre of the park and feeding it right to Hernandez. A lovely deep cross and there was Routledge, totally unmarked, to head beyond Pecanha.

    How many more years do you have to go? Sluggish domestic demand likely made businesses cautious about restocking warehouses. A marginal contribution to second-quarter GDP growth is expected from inventory accumulation after restocking added more than half a percentage point in the January-March period.

In the future, it’s possible that we’ll be able to reduce the prevalence of PTSD.”
