Hold Govt Accountable With Our Audit Reports —NEITI

The Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative on Wednesday charged Nigerians to use data contained in various NEITI audit reports to hold the government accountable to its citizens.
Orji urged citizens to interrogate the EITI/NEITI process constructively, as this was the only way that the laudable objectives for which Nigeria joined the EITI would be achieved.

 He said the transparency agency would also set an annual civil society congress where it would bring together all civil society actors working on the theme of sustainability in the extractive industries. 

 He stated that aim was to harvest ideas and opportunities that would drive reforms in Nigeria’s extractive sector.

 “For us at NEITI, we shall continue to prioritise engagements with all stakeholders because we are clear that it is the only route to achieving the outcomes we all desire if all stakeholders are brought on board,” Orji stated. 

 He urged civil society organisations and the media to use the opportunity provided by the dialogue to make inputs and suggestions on how best to achieve results for the benefit of the country and its citizens.
