INEC’s Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR)
To complement our work with other partners on a transparent and accountable National Assembly (#OpenNASS), EiE launched ‘The Citizen’s Guide to the Recall Process’ on Thursday, April 26th to educate citizens on their constitutional right to recall a legislator that represents them poorly.
Active citizens! Stay woke!
Governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun will hold on July 14th and September 22ndrespectively.
Active citizens! Engage your reps.185 days after the 2018 Appropriation Bill was presented to the National Assembly by President Buhari, it is yet to be passed. Mr Bukola Saraki (Senator, Kwara Central) promised the budget will be passed the week ending May 12th but Nigerians still await its passage.
#OpenNASS: N13.5 million for Running Costs?
In an interview, Mr Shehu Sani (Senator, Kaduna Central) revealed that a Nigerian senator receives N13.5 million monthly for running costs apart from his monthly salary. The issue with legislator’s pay package is allowances and not published salaries.
Active citizens! Engage your reps on how they spend N13.5 million monthly.
“Nigeria is OUR country and it’s OUR responsibility to elect responsible
and credible leaders to make it work!”
