ManifesTrack is a project of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Open-Minds Young-Voices Network. The aim of this project is to critically assess the President on his electoral promises (Manifesto) to Nigerians.
In Nigeria, campaign promises are merely a means to an end and many a promise is jettisoned after success at the polls. Whilst voters are bound to forgive or forget some of the promises made to them before elections, some promises are so vital that breaking them should not be easily forgivable.
It is our mission to sift through cheap politicking and hold our elected president to his promises to Nigerians. We will use this project to monitor and track the campaign promises of presidential aspirants and then the president-elect leveraging on technology and social media to simplify their manifesto and sensitize the general public to ask questions and demand transparency.
