A lot of Nigerians go about their daily life without knowing their daily rights, except by virtue of ethics and what is morally acceptable. Most are never aware until the day a lawyer tells them when they get in trouble.
Most people suffer and are brutalised daily for minor offenses they could have bravely stood their ground for. Ganibot therefore aims to be a timely intervention for every Nigerian to know their rights and how to ensure it’s not violated before,during or after they get into any trouble.
According to the developer, Oyeleke Okiki, the Bot is always online with quick human-like answers and empathy by the BOT to daily legal questions, punishments and a guide to further research.
Questions that the Bot cannot answer immediately will try to be replied in 48 hours.GaniBot provides the latest contact information of verified Human rights services (Domestic violence , anti-rape, suicide prevention hotlines)
GaniBot can also give you the latest contact details of the Nigerian Army, Police and Civil Defence’
Human Rights desk where users can lodge harassment and other complaints to.
“The aim is to bridge the gap of users that have zero access to legal consultancy and little or no access to basic legal education,” Okiki adding that the bot is in it’s learning phase, but has answered over 1,000 questions and plans to answer over 80,000 questions by the end of August 2017.
