I’d like to introduce you to the North East Intellectual Entrepreneurship Fellowship, (NEIEF) @Neieffellows a flagship youth led program driven by young Nigerian – mainly from the North East leading the conversation about their region.
What we want from you: They, the young people (mostly new to social media) from North Eastern Nigeria are starting an online conversation on countering violent extremism – essentially disseminating counter narrative messages about the region to help promote moderation and tolerance. More importantly, spreading the messages of peace about their region using the hashtag #NotAnotherNigerian to discourage widespread online terrorists campaign.
The campaign has established the following social media presence ahead of tomorrow’s induction/inauguration in Yola, Adamawa State:
• Twitter, https://twitter.com/Neieffellows
• Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/NEIEFFELLOWS/
• Instagram, https://www.instagram.com/neieffellows/
We invite you and your network to follow as much of the handles as position and join us as we support the #NotAnotherNigerian campaign. As a Nigerian, I say #NotAnotherNigerian should be influenced into violent extremism.
The North East Intellectual Entrepreneurship Fellowship Program is an activity of the North East Regional Initiative (NERI), USAID/OTI Nigeria’s CVE program implemented by Creative Associates International.
