Jigawa Tops List in States Budget Transparency Survey

Jigawa State has emerged the best State in the Nigerian States Budget Transparency Survey 2022.

In the report released on Tuesday by the Civil Resource Development Centre, in Abuja, the state scored 84 percent ahead of Kano, Adamawa and Ondo with 64, 63, and 61 percent respectively.

The survey exposes issues of transparency, participation and accountability in the budget and procurement process at sub-national level.

It shows some positive changes in the number of states that now publish their budget documents in 2022 compared to 2020.

While it is a positive development that more states now publish their budget documents, the data shows inconsistency as some states stopped publishing some documents that had previously been published.

The survey also notes that the quality of information in the published documents did not earn maximum scores to significantly move the needle in terms of the overall scores.

Some states improved on their transparency scores, in 2022, while many others retrogressed.
