Action Plan 3

  • Number of Commitments: 13
  • Policy Area Focus: Not specified

Nigeria has delivered their 2023-2025 action plan.

* * *

Under the second Open Government Partnership (OGP) action plan, Nigeria advanced anti-corruption efforts through greater transparency of corporate beneficial ownership, openness of national and state budgets, and improved management of recovered assets. However, a lack of ownership among implementing agencies contributed to low levels of completion and few early open government results across most commitments. Nigeria’s OGP Subnational Program and Youth Network are initiatives to watch in bringing OGP closer to the citizens.

OGP Global Report Data

The data below is drawn from the 2019 OGP Global Report. You can view and learn more about the report here.

Selected Dimensions of Open Government

This section captures how each OGP member can play a leadership role, based on IRM-based findings and third-party scores. This list does not cover all of open government and OGP members are not required to take any action.

Action implications

These are recommendations on the role that each OGP member might play in each policy area. The recommendations are derived from a combination of the IRM-based findings and third-party scores.

IRM-based findings

Reflect the performance of commitments in a particular policy area, as assessed by the IRM.

 

(NC) No Commitments
(CA) Commitment(s) in the policy area.
(IR) IRM-Reviewed: At least one IRM-assessed commitment.
(C) Was Complete: At least one commitment was substantially or fully completed.
(A) Was Ambitious: At least one commitment with moderate or transformative potential impact.
(ER) Showed Early Results: At least one commitment opened government in a “Major” or “Outstanding” way.

Third-party scores

Reflect “real-world” performance, i.e., performance outside of the OGP framework. Scores are comprised of various indicators collected by respected organizations.
