@njeris We definitely hear your concern. We are trying hard to make sure that Transparent Nigeria remains a sustainable endeavor. We've institutionalized our access to data via an approved letter by the Perm. Secretary of the Ministry of Finance requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act. We are also reaching out to non-profits, civil society, and business (because a less corrupt govt is better for business!). It is needless to say hard work. We are itching for support from the online community to share the site so that at a minimum we have numbers behind our movement. Thank you for your support and please share amongst your networks!!
While Africa seems to be moving beyond its legacy of lifetime dictators, unfortunately the new breed of politician seems focused on using their shorter elected period to enrich themselves. Corruption isn't just thriving, it's becoming the underlying formula for government and business. Any initiative that raises awareness, asks hard questions and exposes corruption at the source deserves support. Thanks!
I hope this works better now that we are in the age of social media. In the past there have been similar efforts but nothing seems to happen after the initial public outcry over some corrupt govt official who has used public funds to support a lavish lifestyle. The public seems to have a very short memory and the same people still get elected to office.
