The INGO Forum mobilized heads and representatives of civil society networks and coalitions including the Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO), Network of Civil Society Organizations in Borno (NECSOB), Caritas Foundation, Civil Society Coalition for Poverty Eradication (CISCOPE), Nigeria Farmers Association and the Development Centre (DRPH). These CSO Networks widely consulted with their constituents who then came up with a CSO position statement here and selected representatives (Ambassador of Peace Ahmed Shehu and Mrs. Fatima S. Imam of NECSOB) to make a presentation at Oslo Humanitarian Conference on 23-24th February 2017.
