A unique element of Project OSEESE’s methodology and design is that we do not propose to simply sit in our offices, conduct research and write a policy template on Ogun State from our ‘ivory towers’. We intend to actively and intensively engage with the state’s citizens and residents to obtain their input and participation as critical stakeholders. In this way, we hope our output will have the citizens’ participation; buy-in and support.
In furtherance of this strategy, Project OSEESE has a component- Citizens Engagement and Survey Project which we have termed “Kilo J’Ogun Logun” in Yoruba to ascertain what Ogun State citizens and residents consider important to their socio-political and economic well-being and to get a sense of their pain points, suggestions and priorities.
Kilo J’Ogun Logun will entail visits to all local governments and communities in the state over the six months project to speak with and listen to our people.
