#ErectJanjaBula – Tracking NGN 8.2 Million for the Construction of three (3) Classrooms at Janja Bula PS, Janja Bula, Fika LGA, Yobe State

Fika Local Government Area is one of the places that witnessed heavy bombardment at the peak of Boko Haram activities in 2015. Specifically, on May 30, 2015, suspected Boko Haram insurgents reportedly stormed Fika town; burning down a police station, local government secretariat, LEA and departments of health, works, and several government public buildings. Clearly, educational facilities have been destroyed and existing ones over-stretched beyond capacity. Following our investigations on educational development in the state, we discovered funds meant for education with Yobe SUBEB as the implementation agency. Therefore, Follow The Money Team has activated #ErectJanjaBula track NGN 8.2 Million for the Construction of three (3) Classrooms at Janja Bula PS, Janja Bula, Fika LGA, Yobe State.

#ConstructWachakal – Tracking NGN 15 Million for the Construction of 4 (4) classrooms at Wachakal PS, Wachakal, Karasuwa LGA

Yobe State is one of the states ravaged by insurgency and terrorism. This has left public infrastructures and utilities at the lowest level possible. In addition to the general decay, there is more or less basic educational crisis in the region which has produced more out of school children in Northern Nigeria than in the southern counterpart. According to 2006 census, Karasuwa has an area of 1,162 km² and a population of 106,992. Basically, the people predominantly live in Karasuwa, which is 70 percent Manga tribe, which originated from sub-Kanuri tribe. Most residents are farmers, both in towns and villages. It cannot be more urgent than now to track/monitor development interventions in the region especially national and sub-national budgetary appropriations while providing oversight to special funds for the reconstruction of Yobe State- one of the theatres of terrorism. Therefore, Follow The Money Team has activated #ConstructWachakal to track NGN 15 million for the Construction of 4 (4) classrooms at Wachakal PS, Wachakal, Karasuwa LGA, Yobe State. We invite the general public to get involved in the campaign today and help us in this campaign so that Wachakal community will have access to basic education by joining us on...

#WaterBukarti – Tracking Water Borehole Installation at Bukarti, in Yunusari LGA of Yobe State

Water deficit is one of the major challenges confronting rural communities in Nigeria. According to Federal Ministry of Water, Nigerians had better access to potable water in 1990 than in 2017. This implies a growing dilapidation and shortfall in water supply. Mournfully, clean water has become a form of luxury among Nigerians especially the semi-urban and rural dwellers. Out of the marginalized populations, women and children have been identified as the most deprived and affected. Against this backdrop, our lead investigators have uncovered and initiated #WaterBukarti to track Water Borehole Installation at Bukarti, in Yunusari LGA of Yobe State to be implemented by the African Development Bank. We invite the general public to get involved in the campaign today and help us in this campaign so that Bukarti community will have access to clean water by joining us on...
