According to a report from Vanguard, the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, yesterday, tasked Nigerians to challenge their governors to account for the monthly budgetary allocation they get from the federation account.
Why should Nigerians be the ones to ask these Governors the questions? Why should we not have a transparent system to monitor the funds allocated to different states?.
I have said it before and will still say it now….
until money and power tussle stop being the major reason people go into politics in Nigeria, corrupt practises will never end and Nigeria will not be any better.
Put good fund monitoring strategies and Nigerian politics will attract young people with the abilities to implement ideas and move the Nation forward.
