In view of our commitment to pro-poor issues, we have engaged the National Assembly in advocating and lobbying for some legislation, which affects the lives of the poor meaningfully and directly. Some of the laws, we lobbied the National Assembly for legislation along with other civil society groups are:
    The Public Procurement Act, 2007
    The Fiscal Responsibility Act, 2007
    The Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Act, 2007
    The Freedom of Information Act
    The 1999 Constitutional Amendment Act
    The Nigeria Oil and Gas Content Development Act
    The Electoral Act Amended Bill
    Others


There are Bills, which NDEBUMOG is particularly interested and would continue to advocate and lobby National Assembly until such are eventually legislated upon. Some are:
    The National Budget Bill
    The Whistle Blowers Protection Bill
    The Petroleum Industries Bill
    Amendment of Constitution for Local Governments Autonomy
    Others
