The Non-Governmental Organizations Regulatory Commission Bill was presented on the floor of the House of Representatives on June 2, 2016 by Umar Buba Jubril . The bill violates the right to freedom of association and empowers government to regulate and control the activities of religious institutions, unions, cooperatives, advocacy groups etc. However, NGOs & CSOs are advocating for the non-passage of the bill.

Misplaced Priorities by Rochas & Wike


Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has pulled yet another stunt. After the public outcry against his “heroic statues”, he recently appointed his younger sister, Ogechi Ololo as the Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment. 

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike bought 16 new SUVs worth N484 million for 16 National Assembly members representing Rivers State despite owing retired civil servants  pensions and gratuities for over 3 years.

When will Imo & Rivers' residents say 'Enough!'?
