FOI Act Video Series

Right To Know Nigeria (R2K) announces the release of FOI videos titled “Understanding the FOI Act”.


Nigeria’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (2011) Compliance Assessment Report 2017

As part of its activities to mark the 2nd Edition of the celebration of the Universal Access To Information (ATI) Day every 28th September as designated by UNESCO, Right To Know (R2K), Nigeria has released with the support of MacArthur Foundation, a Compliance Assessment Report 2017, an update edition of the initial 2016 Report. The aim of the Reports is to assess or evaluate the compliance performance of public institutions against two specific sections of the Act; namely, Section 2(3 &4) relating to the provision on Proactive Disclosure—a term that describes the duty of Public institutions as defined by the Act to willingly publish, disseminate, update and review information on their initiative without a request --; and Section 29 (1,2 &3) obligating an FOI Annual Submission to the Office of the AttorneyGeneral of the Federation (AGF) on or before every 1st of February—i.e. a report covering all FOI related matters from the preceding fiscal year.

 

The reports represent such model approach and contribution that does not only envisage to name and shame, but also focus on bringing to the fore genuine, good and progressive stories from government on access to information strengthening transparency, accountability and service delivery in the country.
