Nigeria Implementation Report 2017-2019 – For Public Comment
In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the implementation report for Nigeria’s first action plan. The report covers action plan implementation and early results.
In Nigeria, the IRM researcher Ann Iyonu findings are summarized below:
Nigeria’s first action plan initiated open government reforms such as civic engagement in the budget process and open contracting. Ongoing civil society support often drove commitment implementation. Meanwhile, limited lead agency engagement and lengthy legislative processes inhibited the implementation of some commitments. Resultantly, 10 of 14 commitments will be continued in Nigeria’s ambitious second action plan.
