The number of FoI Judgements upholding the right of Nigerians to access information held by public institutions in Nigeria have steadily increased since the passage of the Act in May, 2011. This is largely due to the failure of public institutions to comply with their obligations under the Act to grant request within the time limits and their reluctance to proactively disclose these information.
It is anticipated that these FoI Judgements will steer public institutions away from the age old institutionalized system of secrecy to openness.
