Mr Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has revealed that plans were underway to organise a public presentation of Nigeria Social Contract Document, geared towards holding leaders accountable.
The social contract will give the citizens, especially the youth, the opportunity to champion a social change in Nigeria. Mr. Oputa further revealed that the era of making vain promises and failing to fulfill them by politicians will be over.
“The movement is committed to enlisting youthful energy, values, and visions to advocate for a paradigm shift in Nigeria, by fundamentally believing and advocating for freedom, equality, and prosperity for the people of Nigeria.
“Our Youth Foundation believes that until the vast majority of Nigerians, especially the electorate and voting population are able to understand and reconstruct their engagement with the democratic process as the “real owners” of government and the Nigerian project, people’s participation and commitment to the electoral and political processes would continue to depreciate.
The Nigerian Social Contract Initiative, is designed to enlighten the citizens about Nigeria’s democratic process as well as transfer the ownership of the democratic process to the citizens thereby enabling them to engender accountable democracy.
“As an organisation advocating for social change, we believe that for there to be a stable and progressive society, there must be some established norms guiding the relationship between the people and the government of the state.
