The Follow the Money Team started following the $1.5m Saving One Million Lives by the Federal Government to the 36 states in Nigeria and the FCT. We are able to follow the money in 6 states which are Osun, Kogi, Kano, Yobe, Akwa Ibom and Enugu in the last quarter of 2016 and till date, we are still on it.
Just today, the Saving One Million Lives Department of the Ministry of Health gave the Follow the Money team an access to the planning documents of the states which was requested from the states during our campaigns in the states.
Earlier, we visited the World Bank SOML office where we shared feedbacks from our findings while following the monies in the states in Nigeria.
Going forward, this is a right step in the right direction as the information will give more clarity to the team on the implementation of the funds.
