We are currently developing a number of indexes for ranking Nigerian local and state governments. One of the input into this process is to analyze the financial condition of these entities, which requires us to access their annual budgets and financial statements. The problem is that it is very difficult to find these documents, which by statute should be readily available to the public. As a consequence, we are requesting Nigerian citizens who have access to these public documents to kindly share them with us. In return we will provide to them a FREE copy of the report we produce.
Our goal is to publish periodic reports on these rankings, to illuminate these public entities' comparative performance—primarily to provide input into private and public sector decision-making, and secondarily to instigate a healthy competition among the public entities themselves.
