National FOI Ranking in Retrospect

It was a thrilling experience at the Public and Private Development Centre’s annual National Freedom of Information ranking which takes place on the 28th of September to commemorate International Rights to Know Day.

This year, a total of  250 public institutions were ranked based on their level of disclosure, transparency, and compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2011.

The Bureau of Public Service Reforms led the pack this year with 65 points, the Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) came 2nd with 64 points, and Debt Management Office was 3rd with a total of 58.25 points.

The aim of the ranking was to entrench accountability and transparency in public institutions by ensuring Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) liberate data and citizens have timely and unrestricted access to public information.

This year’s National FOI ranking was organized by a coalition of six civil society organizations; PPDC, BudgIT, Basic Rights Watch, International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR), Right to Know, and Media Rights Agenda (MRA).
