‎In his address, Saraki spoke on the impact of social media in promoting inclusive and participatory governance.

"In the past, if we didn't perform, we won't be kicked out, but now, if we don't perform we will be kicked out by the voters in 2019… we are more accountable now whether we like it or not. Let us seize this opportunity to work together in partnership‎",‎ he said.

Adebola Williams, the Co-founder of StateCraft Inc. spoke about the role of the youth and social media in influencing the change of political power in the last presidential election while sharing insights on the intersection between media and governance.
