ABUJA —Electoral College, the pioneer political literacy institution in Nigeria committed to enhancing political literacy and governance, is proud to announce the successful completion of its 12th cohort of politeracy classes.
This significant milestone underscores the College’s unwavering dedication to empowering Nigerian electorates with knowledge and insight into the intricacies of politics and governance.
Inaugurated in 2020, Electoral College embarked on a journey to bridge the gap between political discourse and the understanding of the electorate, thereby creating a more engaged and informed citizenry. The primary goal has been to equip the electorate with the tools needed to actively participate in shaping the political landscape of Nigeria.

“Political literacy is the bedrock of any thriving democracy, we firmly believe that a well-informed electorate is the key to better governance and politics in Nigeria. The successful completion of our 12th cohort underscores the dedication and commitment of our students, as well as the tireless efforts of our devoted team”
said Lisa Wunmi Bello, the College’s Deputy Executive Director for Politeracy.
The reverberations of Electoral College’s mission extend far beyond the classroom.
As graduates go on to participate in local and national politics, they carry with them the knowledge and skills gained through the program, contributing to a more informed and engaged political landscape and instigating positive change throughout the nation.
Electoral College is excited to continue this journey, and remains committed to the cause of enhancing political literacy and governance, with a vision of creating a Nigeria where every citizen is an informed and active participant in the country’s political processes.
