ActionAid Nigeria, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), has trained activists, human rights defenders, and journalists on how to organise and sustain social movements for positive change.

The three-day workshop took place in Ikeja, Lagos over the weekend.

Speaking with journalists, Seun Akioye, social mobilisation manager at ActionAid Nigeria, said the workshop was organised to train stakeholders on how to hold the government accountable.

Akioye said the training was initiated to mobilise the civil society groups for the “fight against social injustice and eradication of poverty”.


He added that ActionAid believes that societal change is possible if the people hold the government accountable and the government in turn listens to the people.

“Our plan for the next 10 years is to lift 5 million people out of poverty using social mobilisation as a main tool,” Akioye said.

“We have different programmes to achieve this cause. We are going to continue to scale up some of these programmes.


“In the next 10 years, we will keep measuring our successes at every point in time. It is going to be continuous.

“We are looking for allies, partners, and movement groups to join us in this campaign to foster good governance and eradicate poverty.”

The workshop exposed participants to how to use the human rights-based approach to organise social campaigns.
