Right To Know (R2K), Nigeria
The Right To Know (R2K), Nigeria is a dynamic organisation established in 2007 to champion the right to access officially held information at all levels of government public institutions and establishing legal standards for these rights in Nigeria.
The legal affirmation of this right is a necessary pre-condition for the establishment of open and democratic government in Nigeria.
Acknowledging that sovereignty everywhere belongs to the people, R2K advocates for the transformation of the existing culture of secrecy in government to one of openness because the people have a right to know what their government does.
R2K seeks to build a movement in support of open and democratic government in Nigeria from divers sectors including, youth groups, organised labour, faith-based groups, market women, communities, government institutions, and professional bodies in whose name government claims legitimacy and who active participation is, therefore needed to hold government accountable.
