Event: #DoAgric Interview
Guest: Seun Onigbinde (@seunonigbinde)
Theme: Agriculture and the Nigerian Budget
Date: Thursday 26th June, 2014
Time: 1800 GMT+1
About Seun Onigbinde:
Seun has always been attached to the idea that data and research can be empowering mechanisms for change—something he credits his Engineering degree with confirming. After spending years in the financial sector providing critical analysis of budgets and strategic research to help banks perform better, Oluseun decided it was time to take a risk and apply these same principles to building a better country. But instead of providing analysis to managers of government, he thought the key is to provide this budget analysis to the general public. Recognizing that the data does not actually come alive unless communicated effectively, Oluseun spends as much time focusing on data analysis as on finding creative and relevant ways to present and disseminate it. This profile was prepared when Oluseun Onigbinde was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012. Read more here.
Seun is a Knight International Journalism Fellow with the commitment to use a data-driven approach to tell health stories with the goal of fostering engagement and driving varied discussions. Projects are jointly funded by Knight Foundation and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
