Over the last decade an increasing number of citizens around the world have demanded that their fundamental right to engage in policy making and policy implementation be recognized and that their governments become more transparent and accountable. Responding to recognition of the rights of citizens, governments across the world have embraced the concept of Open government. Consequently, this has led to a growing global trend for government data to be released to the public as ‘open data’. Across the public sector, extraordinary quantities of data are amassed in the course of delivering public services and this has signaled a shift towards a data-driven socioeconomic model, commonly referred to as “big data”. Governments around the world are posting many thousands of their datasets on online portals. A major purpose of releasing this data is to drive innovation through Big Data analysis, as well as to promote government transparency and accountability. This paper aims to consider the adoption of open government and propose a framework that will incorporate big data analytics to streamline and advise decision makers on topical issues in Nigeria.
