API – AFRIHERITAGE Collaborate on Dissemination of Nigeria Social Cohesion Survey 2019

December 18, 2019

The African Polling Institute (API) in collaboration with African Heritage Institution (AfriHeritage) held the South-east leg of their dissemination event on the 5th of November 2019. The African Heritage Institution hosted the event. African Polling Institute (API) is an independent opinion research think-tank that conducts opinion polls, surveys, social research and evaluation studies at the intersection of democracy, governance, economic conditions and public life. Their main objective is to conduct and disseminate credible opinion research data to support better decisions, public policy, practice and advocacy in sub-Saharan Africa. The South-east phase of the public presentation and dissemination of The Nigeria Social Cohesion Survey 2019 was aimed at measuring the degree of social cohesion in Nigeria, using five components of social cohesion identified in the literature-identity, trust, patriotism, self-worth & future expectations, and equity & social justice. The dissemination event which was convened by the Executive Director of API, Dr Bells Ihua, was well attended by representatives of civil society organizations (CSOs), media personnel and private individuals. Dr Ihua explained the findings of the survey and its implications for national unity while also drawing a direct link between a non-cohesive society and increased social vices and conflicts due to perceived exclusion, marginalization and disconnection from the social contract.
