Human rights lawyer and former chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Chidi Anselm Odinkalu, has launched a video campaign against the NGO regulation bill about to be passed by the national assembly.

In the five-minute video, he outlines the implications of the proposed law for religious bodies, humanitarian agencies and even the esusu system in the village.

Odinkalu urges Nigerians to rise up and resist the bill by taking the campaign to their elected representatives.


The “totalitarian” bill is sponsored by Umar Buba Jibril, deputy majority leader of the house of representatives.

    For the avoidance of doubt, let me state once again that churches, mosques, esussu, market women associations as well as local quasi-financial institutions are not NGOs and thus the bill has nothing to do with their operations. Yakubu Dogara
