In line with the strategic roles of the Center for Fiscal Transparency and Integrity Watch (CeFTIW) and the Center for Journalism Innovation (CJID), the organizations have committed to strengthening existing relationship toward promoting transparency and accountability in the nation’s public service.
The organizations made this commitment during a courtesy call led by the Executive Director of the Center, Yakubu Umar, to the CJID.
Umar explained that partnership with the CJID will enhance the efficiency of the Center’s advocacies and the deployment of technological solutions toward promoting a culture of transparency and accountability in the nation’s public sector.
Responding, the acting Executive Director of CJID, Tobi Oluwatola, underscored the need for institutional partnership and pledged to work with the Center to improve the accountability value chain, primarily through media and journalism.
Oluwatola also promised to provide media resources and support to amplify issues of transparency and accountability in the public service in line with the organization’s mission to “improve governance, promote a community of informed citizenry, and entrench democratic accountability.”
