citizenship and the accountability of public and private sectors

Oxfam's role is a combination of work with partners at community level, brokering and coalition building and lobbying for increased transparency and accountability.

This program seeks to ensure that the socio-economic and political rights of Nigerians are guaranteed by working with citizens, relevant institutions and the private sector to promote transparency and accountability. This will result in the nation's huge earnings from the extractives sector (which form 80% of government revenues) and both Corporate and Citizen generated Tax resources improving the living standards of Nigerians through effective and efficient use of public resources.
