There are several local and international funds/budget at local, state and Federal Government in Nigeria that are spent and the public knows nothing to little about it, or how the funds were spent. Many projects gulp huge funds but does not connect to the real need of the locales.
But when people don’t ask questions about how their funds are spent or independent impact assessment are not carried out? That may continue to leave lucuna for corruption to strive.
Without people asking questions about budget spending, corruption will continue to strive no matter how hard we try.
Our initiative is a concrete attempt to reduce the misplaced use of public funds using available data and technology to push for public financial transparency ecosystem in development sector at grassroot levels in Nigeria
Then catalyze for citizen participation in budget at all levels as active citizens, by asking for budget accountability and transparency, on how public funds are spent.
Mobilize and track local projects as independent evaluators with reports, galvanize citizens to be interested in budget participation and engagement from conception to execution, and pressed for inclusive governance so that no one is left behind.
The central idea of the initiative is to make budget open and accessible to all citizens in a language he/she understands.
