10th anniversary: EiE launches #OnePerson campaign to inspire action

Chinedu Asadu

Enough is Enough! (EiE), a civil society organisation, has launched a campaign tagged ‘One Person’ to inspire thousands to take action and ensure accountability.

In a statement on Monday, the organisation said the media awareness campaign is being launched in commemoration of its ten years anniversary, and under the theme, ‘Footprints.’

‘Yemi Adamolekun, EiE executive director, said the exercise will spotlight the organisation’s footprint over the last decade and “reiterate its belief that it takes the action of ‘one persons’ to make a difference.”

Adamolekun further said the campaign will feature sixty people who will record and share individual videos stating “how, as ‘one person’, they have changed lives and impacted their communities.”

“Sixty people were chosen to reflect Nigeria’s sixtieth year since independence,” she said.

“Like the few people who received the first email that started the movement that became EiE, we hope our sixty role models will inspire a thousand who will inspire thousands more to take action and share their stories until the voices of the governed, echo everywhere with the simple message that the Office of the Citizen is the HIGHEST office in the land!

“We must never forget that demanding accountability in governance is a right, not a privilege.”

Adamolekun added that over the next decade, EiE will remain committed to supporting citizens to “occupy their office, take more action and amplify their stories.”

She asked Nigerians to join the campaign by “simply recording a short video where you talk about how you’re leaving a lasting footprint in your community (and) upload the video with the hashtags #OnePerson, #EiEat10 #EiEFootprints.”
