A Civil Society Organisation (CSO), ‘Reformers of Africa’, has appealed to Nigerian citizens to start measuring the performances of their leaders and hold them accountable for meaningful development to be attainable in the country.
The group said this remains the only panacea to the dwindling fortunes of dividends of democracy in African continent, especially in Nigeria that was widely adjudged and rated as the ‘Giant of Africa’.
The group said these in Ado Ekiti, on Saturday, during a virtual launching of a Social Accountability Programme under the banner ‘#JKF Watch’.
According to the Founder and Team Lead of the CSO, Mr. Ayomide Alao, the ‘JKF Watch’, which stands for John Kayode Fayemi Watch, was conceptualised by the group to track and monitor the compliance of Governor Fayemi’s administration to the implementation of the promises made to Ekiti citizens in 2018.
Alao said the tracking programme, which had been launched in Lagos and Oyo States, was initiated to make government responsible and enlighten the citizens how to rate the performances of government at all levels.
