She bemoaned the failure of states to publish mid-year review which is six month report on the budget, adding that Auditor Generals of all the states failed to engage the citizens of each of the states.Manuga said, “The issue of transparency has tremendously improved unlike when we started in 2015 because now every day has a website and they put up their documents on those website. Not, all the documents that we are looking for are there and when they are there (online) they are there in good time because there is a timeline.

“So that when citizens what to do something or intervene but unfortunately, not all are always online in good time. Some states don’t do citizens’ budget where it is broken down using infographics, or the use of languages that citizens can understand some states don’t do this. Some states do not do call circular they feel it is not important.” headtopics.com
