Nigeria Failing to Post Spending Data, Paper Says

17 June 2013

The Nigerian federal government is consistently failing to put information about spending online, according to an article by Ajibola Hamzat in The Guardian.

Under the 2010 freedom of information law, Section 2(3 and 4), government agencies must  publish information including “information relating to the receipt or expenditure of public or other funds of the institution, the names, salaries, titles and dates of employment of all employees and officers of the institution.”

The newspaper’s “random check” of the website reveals “that none of the public institution adheres to the law.”
