I have been one that has rallied for information about the war on Boko Haram, as well as the whereabouts of the remaining Chibok girls & Leah Sharibu—and I am not the only one.
Some Projects, such as Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), Enough is Enough (EiE), and BudgIT have asked Buratai, the Nigerian Chief of Nigerian Army Staff, to pass a joint Freedom of Information request—a request for financial transparency concerning how money is being spent to fight Boko Haram and protect those in Northern Nigeria (source).
I am happy to report that Chief Buratai did not overlook this important request, but rather accepted and spoke about it.
This report is about more than just a bunch of numbers. It will tell the honest truth about where the money that is supposed to strengthen and protect the people of Nigeria has gone. Chief Buratai has 14 days to give a report on where the money allotted for the Nigerian military and those who are suffering is truly going to.
I will try my hardest to keep everyone here updated. Let’s all pray that this report is 100% honest in nature, and that appropriate actions are taken in a timely fashion upon reading this report.
“Dear Lord Jesus,
You know the Truth of all things. You see all things plainly, for what they are. We pray and ask now that You would work and move through this report, and that as the truth is known, appropriate actions would be taken. Let all of this ultimately be turned to right.
In Your Precious Name we pray,
