A Platform for Social Movement of Grassroots Citizens working to enthrone democratic accountability and inclusive development


2019 Elections: The ReclaimNaija Movement


Mobilising Faith Communities for Non-partisan Civic and Voter Education towards the 2019 Elections


Community Life Project-CLP, through its ReclaimNaija grassroots citizens platform, embarked on a massive and unprecedented mobilisation of religious leaders and faith communities across the country. This Civic and Voter education initiative was aimed at creating a safe space for Religious leaders: to show and demonstrate religious tolerance towards people of different faith; to discuss their roles in promoting peaceful elections; and to enhance their capacity to voter education to their congregation in a manner that is not divisive, non-partisan and that engenders unity and peace. CLP partnered with the major Christian and Muslim institutions and organisations with well-established structures to reach the grassroots and took the activities from a High-level forum in Abuja to the different states and to local churches and mosques with the Support of the Open Society Initiative for West Africa, OSIWA. Election Incidents Reporting and Crowdsourcing Platform


For the third successive general election in Nigeria, CLP will be deploying its Ushahidi crowdsourcing platform for election incidents reports :- . This platform was first deployed for the 2011 general elections and adjusted as one of the most successful Ushahidi deployments and was also used for the 2015 elections. The platform helps in amplifying the voices of grassroots people and makes it possible for citizens to observe the electoral process and report incidents of electoral fraud and other malpractices at their own polling units simply by sending text messages or calling dedicated numbers in four major languages (Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba and Pidgin).
