Career[edit]

Advocacy[edit]

While working with the International Republican Institute, Eta carved a niche in the non-profit community for using his technology and creative communication skills in sustaining advocacy for inclusion of women, youth and persons with disabilities (PWDs) in governance processes in Nigeria.[3]

Eta has used his passion for writing and proficient skills in new-media to OpEd many political yet non-partisan articles[4][5][permanent dead link][unreliable source][6] with the goal of fostering a more united and inclusive Nigeria.

Eta has leveraged on the power of the internet to call attention to the need for the passage of the Not Too Young To Run Bill[7] [8] in Nigeria. This 'youth inclusive' bill sought to reduce the constitutional age requirement for running for elective office in Nigeria: from 40 years to 30 years for President of the Federal Republic; from 35 years to 30 years for State Governor; from 30 years to 25 years for Federal House of Representatives; and from 30 years to 25 years for State Assembly. The Not Too Young To Run bill was successfully passed into law in the month of May, 2018[9].
