Former President Good luck Jonathan, says Nigerians need increase access to information to enhance their wellbeing and knowledge for development of the country.

Jonathan said this shortly after being honoured with a Special Recognition Award at the 10th anniversary of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Acts awards night on Friday in Abuja.

According to reports, Jonathan was represented at the event by Ms Ann Iyonu, the Executive Director of Goodluck Jonathan Foundation.

The 10th anniversary of FOI Act in Nigeria is organised by the International Press Centre (IPC), in collaboration with the Media Rights Agenda (MRA) and the European Union (EU).

The former president stressed that if the process of governance was not reasonably opened up, some people would generate too much false information that would create problem for the society.

He congratulated and encouraged all the awardees who he said deserved the recognition.
