The Federal Government on Wednesday in Abuja launched a re-designed Bureau of Public Service Reform (BPSR) website with a freedom of information portal to receive FOI requests.
The initiative was supported by the Mac Arthur Foundation as part of an on-going partnership with Right to Know (R2K).

Director General of BPSR, Dr Joe Abah, during the launch in Abuja, said the agency was the first institution in Nigeria to have an electronic platform for receiving freedom of information requests.


?We are proud to be the first government agency in Nigeria to have an electronic platform (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) for receiving Freedom of Information requests,? he said.

?The website will allow members of the public to submit real time online FOI requests and receive feedback,? Abah stated.

While ‎handing over the redesigned website to R2K Coordinator, Ene Nwankpa, said ?nothing negative occurs when a public institution opens up its operations to public access and scrutiny.

?This ingenuity should be followed by all public institutions in Nigeria.?
