CLP 2015 Annual Report
Posted by admin about in Resources
2015 provided CLP with another opportunity to continue its work on promoting inclusion, popular participation and citizen engagement, particularly in the area of elections and participatory budgeting.
2015 proved to be a very important year for Nigeria as well; the country’s democratic experience was further tested with the general elections. For the first time since the return to civil rule in 1999, the ruling party at the centre lost to an opposition party.
CLP, in partnership with its ReclaimNaija Grassroots network and INEC, worked real hard to promote electoral integrity through increased citizens’ participation in the election.
CLP also made some gains in the areas of gender-based budgeting and succeeded in getting Local Government Officials to begin to dialogue with women on getting women’s needs into the Local Government budgets.
This 2015 Report highlights the work we did to promote electoral integrity in the 2015 General Elections and Gender-based Budgeting at the Local Government level in Ekiti and Osun States.
