Speaking during the training, the state support officer (SSO) comrade Adam Sulaiman said, the training aimed to promote citizen action in tracking and monitoring selected projects across these communities using the iFollowTheMoney Model.

The Participants also agreed to work within six selected local government that include Dutse, Gwaran, Hadeja, Kiri-kasamma, Garki and Kazaure local government areas in the state.

The CoPs also agreed to track and monitor government projects particularly under State Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) and Basic Healthcare Provision Funds (BHCPF) to advocate for transparency and accountability through usr of existing tools, such as NomTrac.

In addition the Participants agreed to use their platforms to advocate for the mainstreaming and adherence to disability law.
