On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, the Red Card Movement was officially launched in Abuja with key officials of the group and other activities in attendance.
The movement aims to promote democratic rights in Nigeria and also enhance electoral due process.
Business Post reports that the unveiling of the Red Card Movement took place at the Berger Park, Wuse Berger Roundabout.
During the launch, the group kicked off three campaigns to achieve its aims and objectives and they were the #OfficeOfTheCitizen, #MyPVCMyRedCard and #RedCardToAPCAndPDP campaigns.
It was gathered that these campaigns have three distinct objectives to educate and sensitize citizens on their power as citizens and the fact that the most powerful office is the office they occupy; to mobilize up to 30million Nigerians to register to vote, about two million citizens with uncollected PVCs to collect them and for all citizens with PVCs to come out to vote and protect their votes; and to publish empirical data from both local and foreign organizations that reflect evidential failure of governance and corrupt leadership in the last two decades, third party evidence on the streets from citizens that show governance failure from huge infrastructural gap.
One of the key members of the Red Card Movement is the former Minister under President Olusegun Obasanjo government, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, who is also the co-founder of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group.
