Why we gave Nigerians Freedom of Information Act ― Labaran Maku


A former Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, has identified the Freedom of Information Act as prime among the many profound legacies for which the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan will be remembered.

He said the signing of the FoI Act by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the leadership of President Jonathan opened democracy to Nigerians.

According to him, PDP birthed the FoI Act because the party believes in open governance, adding that the gesture was a testimony of the sincerity of purpose of former President Jonathan.

He spoke during a media dialogue organised by the PDP campaign council in Karu, Nasarawa State, on Thursday.
