- Advertisment -

EnuguThe Lagos State Civil Society Partnership known as LACSOP strongly condemns the disruption of a budget tracking meeting organised in Enugu State under the aegis of the Enugu Citizens Forum, a coalition of about 100 Civil Society Organisations in the state.

LACSOP says it is an infringement of the participants fundamental human rights and has urged that the parties responsible for this action to be sought out and appropriate steps taken to avoid repetition of this abuse of human rights.

Barr Ayo Adebusoye, Chair, LACSOP Steering Committee,  in his statement to the press in Lagos said “In a democratic society, government should not shy away or react adversely when its activities are being scrutinised by its citizens especially when such actions were made open. In this case, it is particularly unacceptable when all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies were informed and invited to the meeting”.

He encouraged government to be open to citizens’ participation and also create a forum for citizens’ engagement as it can only accelerate the growth of the state.
