#NigeriaDecides : Support Your Candidate as The “Next for Nigeria” App Launches

It's less that a week to the elections, are you ready? We have had presidential debates, vicious name calling campaigns and massive disfiguring of our highways and environment in general. Trust me, I can't wait for this cup to pass over us! Lol

Before it passes over us however, we will be having our own election special tomorrow on #strikedanvil - there will be no name calling, promise. But hey, I bet entrepreneurs would want to know what plans the two main parties have for entrepreneurs.

I know that some of us have decided based on other criteria that are of interest to them, that's fine. We want to talk to the others who still need that final push based on entrepreneurship. Tune in tomorrow as we host two youth representatives from APC and PDP sharing their parties plans for the SMEs.

Next up is this app...... read about it;


In keeping with the ever increasing use of technology within the Nigerian political landscape, the newly launched "Next For Nigeria" smartphone app is set to further revolutionize digital campaigning. Described as an election app with a twist, clever use of a magic-like technology called Augmented Reality which blends the real-world overlay digital media brings voters face to face with Presidential Candidates via personal video messages which are triggered when a user points their phone camera to a political party logo. The app is sure to sway the minds of undecided voters. The young peoples’ expression and voice regarding their decision for Nigeria’s future will be shared through these apps and distributed through popular social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others.
