Meet Patience, Chief Sunday and their community, forced to flee their homes in Nigeria, from Bue-Leh to Bori.
Abandoned Project is the documentation of analysis and field finding of 2017 budget in 6 selected states of Nigeria. The states were Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Kano and Nasarawa States. As an output from Social Action’s anti-corruption efforts at the sub-national level of government in Nigeria during the year 2017, the findings of budget analyses and monitoring at the sub-national level provide tools for further public advocacy by members of the anti-corruption network composed of citizens and civil society organisations at the grassroots level.
The Monitoring and evaluation of 2016 budget allocation and project execution in six states by a team of Social Action Programme staff was carried out using publically available allocations and implementation figures. The states were Abia, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Bayelsa, Nasarawa and Kano.
In a feat that marks triumph of the Rights and Will of the Citizens, Social Action Nigeria has published the budget of the Rivers State government.
This breakthrough is coming on the heels of years of secrecy with which the government has treated the budget since the coming on board of the present administration in the State.
