I AM CYNTHIA OJUKWU. I AM A LAWYER WORKING IN NIGERIA'S FEDERAL MINISTRY OF JUSTICE. I WORK ON OGP CLOSELY WITH THE SPECIAL ADVISER TO THE PRESIDENT, MRS. JULIET IBEKAKU. I AM ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT OGP BECAUSE NOW THERE CAN BE OPENNESS IN THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT, THERE CAN BE CITIZENS PARTICIPATION AND ENGAGEMENT, AND GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING MECHANISM WILL DEFINITELY BEGIN TO CHANGE. I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN REFORMS AND I AM GLAD NIGERIA HAS SIGNED UNTO THIS GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP. CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS AND GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS ARE PRESENTLY CO-CREATING NIGERIA'S NATIONAL ACTION PLAN AND I AM EXCITED TO BE A PART OF THIS PROCESS. I BELIEVE THE OGP AS A VEHICLE FOR TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY HAS CREATED A ROAD MAP FOR A BETTER NIGERIA AND I AM GLAD THAT I AM A PART OF THIS PROCESS.
