FES in Nigeria

What we do

FES began to work in Nigeria in 1976. In 2002 the main office was moved from Lagos to Abuja but FES still maintains an office in Lagos. Throughout its presence in Nigeria, FES has collaborated with human rights and pro-democracy groups, the labour movement, researchers and many civil society organisations. The priority areas of FES Nigeria are:

  • Good Governance and Democracy Promotion;
  • Trade Union Cooperation;
  • Nigeria’s Role in International Affairs.
