Publications on the Freedom of Information Bill


Campaign for Access to Information in Nigeria

A Report of the Legislative Advocacy Programme

for the Enactment of a Freedom of Information Act (in PDF)

 

This book documents the experiences garnered by Media Rights Agenda and its partners in campaigning for the enactment of the Freedom of Information Bill (FOIB) into law in the hope that other organisations currently involved in similar advocacy work or intending to launch legislative advocacy projects would learn from the experience by avoiding any mistakes which may have been made in the campaign while being able to adopt those strategies that have worked.

 

It chronicles activities from its cradle days in 1993 up till October 2001 when the first House of Assembly (1999 – 2003) had the Public Hearing on the Bill. Part Three of the publication contains the text of the original gazetted FOI Bill which the House of Representatives debated and passed with few amendments.
