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.

Nigel Farage's party is as much an angry annexe of the Conservative family as a new phenomenon. Combined with unreformed constituency boundaries, Ukip voting in 2015 is still likely to rob Cameron of any chance of an overall majority. If Miliband continues to radiate an unnatural sense of calm, Ukip is an important part of the cause.
