I go Talk is a good governance focused project that was conceived after a trip in and out of the country by the co-founder of the project. The frustration led to thoughts and conversations about a solution.
We do not think the sole problem of Nigeria and the world at large is from any government official or public servants. The main problem is its people. We are the ones who put these officials and public servants in power, they are to serve us, it is their job! So do not hesitate to report corrupt practices — describe the scene, write down the location — tell us pretty much everything. Do not worry about your safety because personal information is not required.
This is about ensuring social justice for all of us. It is about ensuring that you can call the Ministry of Health to find out the best Eye Centre to take your sister to. It is about our brother knowing what to do when a corrupt police officer is out to exploit them or the FRSC official is making an unofficial request.
I go Talk will also chronicle cases of Freedom of Information Act request and responses. It will also capture stories of various heroes and villains who are quietly or loudly changing the socio-political landscape in Nigeria.
I go Talk is Nigeria’s adulterated/pidgin English for “I will Talk” with a tone of “You can’t stop me!” The project is presently hosted by a local non-governmental organisation in Nigeria.
I go Talk … the ordinary citizen’s voice.
