EiE announces online course to “hack Nigeria’s operating system”
A civil society organisation in Nigeria Enough is Enough (EiE) has announced a call for applications to “Hacking the Nigeria Code” course.
EiE said the course, a nine-week online course, is aimed to help connect the dots about Nigeria.
“With nationalism on the rise and increasing authoritarianism, there must be a deliberate effort to reorient minds and hearts,” EiE said in its statement.
“It is clear that Nigeria’s operating system (OS) is corrupt and the fundamentals need to be reset. Corruption is the visible outcome of a system that is not functioning as it was designed,” it added.
EiE said the course will cover a diverse set of topics including, National Questions in National Conferences; Causes & Consequences of Systemic Corruption; Historical Antecedents; and The World Around Us.
The sessions will be facilitated by thirteen thought-leading Nigerians including Ayisha Osori, Femi Falana (SAN), Kunle Soriyan, Oby Ezekwesili and Sam Adeyemi.
Speaking on the course and what EiE hopes to achieve with it, the Executive Director, ‘Yemi Adamolekun said, “There’s a lot about fixing a country that we assume without understanding the core issues with ourselves as individuals and the nation as a system.
This course will bring many of those aspects together so that participants get a deeper understanding of the fundamentals; otherwise, we will keep complaining and misdirecting efforts, while Nigeria continues to malfunction.”
The application portal – www.eie.ng/hackngcode – opened on Wednesday, August 5th. The registration fee is N1,000 (one thousand naira) and only 60 successful applicants will be selected to mark Nigeria’s 60 years of independence. Each successful applicant will pay an additional N50,000 (fifty thousand naira) as a commitment fee.
