URGENT: Stop the government bill that threatens people's freedom in Nigeria

The Nigerian government is trying to push through a bill designed to take away the freedoms of Nigerian people. And if we don't act now, it could soon be passed.

The government has tried to make it sound like this ‘NGO bill’ is just about restricting the freedom of NGOs. But a quick Google search shows the public outrage this bill has already caused. It will have devastating effects on Nigerians - which is why they’re trying to pass it as quickly as possible, before too many people take action to stop it.

This so-called ‘NGO’ bill will keep Nigerians from freely sharing their opinions, holding open discussion forums or organising people to protest. The effects of this bill will be far wider than just on NGOs: this bill will shrink the freedoms of Nigerians and allow the government to control them.

The people in power are trying to rush this bill through, in order to quickly silence us.

Don’t let them.

Sign this petition to stop the NGO bill passing and we will take it to the government of Nigeria to show how much your freedoms of expression, speech and association matter to you - and stop this NGO bill in its tracks.
