In 2005, the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, inaugurated a Think Tank, which would provide the reflection and articulation of points for the various issues and challenges facing society. The Think Tank was to function as the advocacy and policy repository of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria. It was similarly, saddled with the responsibility of advising the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria on social, political, and economic issues, while facilitating and disseminating the Church’s position on governance issues in forms which are detailed and effective. All the activities of the Think Tank were to be carried out in line with the social teachings of the Catholic Church. This design, which prioritized effectiveness and maximum impact, focused implementation of its activities through the National Coordinator who doubled as the CSN Liaison Officer in the National Assembly.
