CFN In The News

by CFN

The Citizens for Nigeria (CFN) has drawn attention to burning national issues in a widely-covered press conference held in Lagos, Nigeria. On top of the stack of issues outlined is public declaration of assets by political leaders. We asked President Olusegun Obasanjo to show leadership by making public his personal assets so that other leaders can take a cue. Assets of all Nigerian public officials are currently shrouded in secrecy, in the face of unchecked corruption and abuse of power.

The conference, held in Lagos by CFN's Director of Operations, Mr. Biodun Durojaiye, addressed issues, ranging from corruption, the conduct of elections and constitutional issues to media responsibility and party politics.

Here is how the newspapers reported the event:
