- The founder of a digital democracy project, Rate Your Leader, says the app will soon be launched across all the states in Nigeria
- Joel Popoola's app is globally rated, and it has its base in the United Kingdom
- The app allows politicians and the electorate to interact directly
A British citizen of Nigerian descent Joel Popoola, the founder of a digital democracy project, Rate Your Leader, has said the app will soon be launched across all the states in Nigeria.
Legit.ng notes that Popoola said it is important for politicians to use the app to build relationships of trust with the electorate.
He said: "Rate Your Leader is a cutting edge bridge between the elected representatives and their electors. The app will help politicians to listen, connect and engage with the voters within their constituencies, providing them with the tools to improve their voter reach, target and broadcast to voters at the touch of a button, encourage people to register to vote, and engage directly with voters without fear of abuse."
According to Popoola, the app will help leaders to know what matters most to the people whose interest they are serving.
He said it will be extremely difficult for politicians and electorate to register multiple accounts on Rate Your Leader.
Popoola grew up in Gbongan, Osun state where he had his primary and secondary education.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the founder and president of Don Davis Legacy Foundation, Kiko Davis, became the only black woman in the United States that owns a bank.
The 49-year-old is the major shareholder of Detroit-based First Independence Bank.
First Independence Bank is one of the top largest black-owned banks in the United States.
According to Davis, women of colour have an innate warrior spirit that makes them inherently effective at leading and at winning.
She said strength, courage, intelligence and analytical ability are hallmarks of any great leader, adding that a warrior spirit goes beyond that though.
Davis said: “We possess a level of empathy for people in general with a higher level of sensitivity towards women and minorities."
