The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Network Abuja seeks to influence greater transparency and accountability in Nigerian public service. To achieve this objective, we have adopted various strategies including a Youth Leader's Conference on Transparency and Accountability in Public Service that will hold later this year and call on 100,000 Nigerians to sign an #OpenGovtNG online petition, committing to accountability and transparency.
