Follow the Money Team (FTM) started the tracking of the World Bank NGN420m Saving One Million Lives Initiative grants to the 36 states in Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory.

The team piloted the tracking of the fund in 6 states in Nigeria which as at the time of filling this report, the states we were able to engage (Osun, Akwa Ibom, Enugu, Kogi, Kano and Yobe) told us that they have not received any funding from the World Bank nor the FG.

All effort by the team to get World Bank to comment on the fund proves abortive as they failed to reply the letters sent to them. Is the World Bank keeping something from the public or is it the Federal Government that is trying to cover something up?
