Who We Are
The National Alliance for Reporting Progress on Government Commitment to ENDSARS Demands is a group of civil society organisations who have committed to work together to monitor government action in meeting the demands of the ENDSARS protesters using the reporting framework of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) process and SDGs 16 as a hook to support freedom and protect fundamental rights—freedom of expression, association, and assembly.
At a time when the ENDSARS protests have become one of the most intensely discussed international issue on managing peaceful assemblies and Nigeria’s commitment to SDGs 16 and civic space within the Open Government Partnership, the Alliance has a vital role in setting, monitoring, and reporting progress on governments commitment and action to address the ENDSARS demands.
The work of the Alliance will provide country stakeholders with the necessary novel information to feed into inclusive and participatory review process for assessing governments progress and commitments to freedom of assemblies over time providing the basis to report into the regular country and global preparatory processes of the SDG and OGP Summits, the UN High Level Meeting, and the High-Level Political Forum.
The Alliance was established in 2021 at an inaugural meeting in Lagos, Nigeria at the initiative of the Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO). Operated by 12 members in the first instance, its work is supported by a Secretariat co-facilitated by NNNGO and a growing number of partners from government, CSOS and business.
