Thread: Why you must fight the “dangerous” NGO bill

It was Senator Shehu Sani who first blew the horn on the non-governmental organizations bill sponsored by Umar Buba Jibril, deputy majority leader of the house of representatives. Senator Sani called it “dangerous” and a threat to “freedom of speech”.

Former Chairman of the Human Rights Commission, Chidi Odinkalu also raised his voice against the bill in a 5 minute YouTube video.

The sponsor of the bill is adamant that the bill must be passed in order to give accountability and transparency to the transactions of non-governmental bodies.

Co-founder of Transparency Intl has now lent her voice to the debate, insisting that the rights of the citizens- not just NGOs – are at stake, if we allow this bill pass. This and more is why every Nigerian must fight the bill to extinction.
