WHO WE ARE

Nigeria, in spite of its vast natural and human resources has been left comatose by those vested with the responsibility of leading it aright. The monumental damages done to our economy and resources led to the yearning for change by the populace. The last three decades in the life of Nigeria was characterized by misrule and incompetent leadership without foresight. Corruption in high places and gross impunity that has blighted the country and brought it to its knees. The agitation for a change of government and direction for our dear country as propounded by PSF resonates to all corners of Nigeria and beyond. The resultant effect of this agitation for change has thankfully brought upon us a new dawn and a new era of governance in Nigeria paving way for intolerance for corruption and its purveyors. The need for Nigerians to rise up to promote progressive values and beliefs  wherever we may be in the world, to come together for the purposes of nurturing and advancing better understanding of progressive ideals, beliefs, principles and values in the governance of Nigeria.

The Progressives Solidarity Forum (PSF) was established formally in the United Kingdom in 2012 as the mouthpiece of a progressive ideological think-tank for delivery of the dividends of democracy to all Nigerians. We are a socio-political organization comprising of Nigerian professionals in various fields of endeavours from all over the world ensuring that any government in power uphold democratic process. No Imposition of Candidate, No God-fatherism.

PSF is registered in Nigeria as a non-profit organisation and is a socio-civic caucus formed against the backdrop of apathy, passivity and the subjugation of the Nigerian electorate and the urgent need to robustly challenge the prevailing sub-human existence of the majority of Nigerians and the inability of the ruling class to take decisive steps to change the status quo; to publicly say no to the culture of impunity by some public office holders who have no regard for due process, rule of law and the pervasive lack of accountability in our various national institutions.

Our overarching goal ensures that government in the Nigerian leadership presents alternative and credible government with a human face whenever opportunity presents itself so that Nigerians will come to appreciate the full impact of progressive governance from national, state to local government levels. We are committed to ensuring a united country devoid of ethnic or religious intolerance. We yearn for a vibrant and prosperous Nigeria that will make us proud. We are presently constituted of progressive minded, professionally competent and result driven Nigerians living in Nigeria and Diaspora, who have fashioned out constitutional objectives that promote probity and sanity in governance.

The Nigeria’s Freedom of Information Act was passed into law on May 28 2011, after the longest legislative debate in Nigerian history. The law was passed to enable the public to access certain government information, in order to ensure transparency and accountability. The act aims to make public records and information more freely available, and to protect public records and information in accordance with the public interest and protection of personal privacy. It enables citizens to hold the government accountable in the event of the misappropriation of public funds or failure to deliver public services.

At PSF, we believe that the democratic principle offers an avenue for citizens in a way to govern their affairs through representative of the government, it is a citizenship right to be informed how best to determine their affairs and how best to represent and implement same.
