As Nigeria celebrates 24 years of democracy in the upcoming elections, Google’s mission to organize and make the world’s information universally accessible and useful is more relevant than ever. “We want Nigerians to be empowered with information during the upcoming elections, so we are organizing the information to make it easier for voters to learn more about the candidates through the eyes of Google Trends.” saying Taiwo Kola-Ogunlade, Communications and Public Affairs Manager for West Africa. “More accessible and useful political information improves the political process and leads to greater citizen participation.”

The Nigeria Election Trends Center will help voters make more informed decisions at the polls and have a greater say in the political process. “We are empowering voters to not just watch from afar, but to participate, engage and shape the political process in a democratic way.” aggregate Kola-Ogunlade.

Google is committed to making search useful to Nigerians, and the Nigeria Election Trends Center is one of many initiatives we’re running to support the 2023 election, including training for new and media publishers and support for journalists, to help them tell more compelling stories. .
