Right to Know Nigeria (R2K) today announces the release of a Freedom of Information (FoI) animated Pamphlet titled ‘FoI Act; Your Right to Know’.
The 16 paged coloured pamphlet introduces the framework of access to information as a right, highlights major provisions of the Act and the processes of utilising the law in very easy to read English, with striking visuals for easy retention and understanding. It highlights salient features of the Act, in a comprehensible pictorial format that is readily assimilated, particularly providing clarity to such contentious issues as the various exemptions under the Act.
The development of an FoI animated pamphlet with visuals is geared towards simplifying the provisions of the FoI which makes readership of the Law and its application process very easy and engaging. This pamphlet also differs from R2K’s other information, education and communication (IEC) materials in that, it accommodates literacy challenged persons or persons with abilities in any local language to understand the contents as it is largely represented in pictures as well as words.
The FoI pamphlet developed with support from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) is available on the R2K website for download Click here to download
