Editor’s Note

As 2019 and a new election cycle approaches, we are curating a series on governance. This is – amongst other things – to keep voters informed and level the playing field (as much as we can).

All candidates seeking election are invited to share content/information about themselves on our platform. Those seeking re-election – who should run on their achievements – are invited to share what they have done for the people who elected them. Content created in LISTICLE format will be prioritized. We will investigate, verify and share periodically.

All media aides, campaign coordinators, candidate supporters should take note. Email us at editor@lists.ng
