Words and Actions: Accountability for Good Governance
September 15, 2021 | Grantee Publications | On Nigeria

The BBC reaches 37 million people in Nigeria each week, and its Hausa Service alone reaches 23 million. One of its very popular programs is A Fada a Cika, Words and Action, a Hausa town hall series on governance and accountability in Nigeria. The program hosts government officials to hold them accountable for the promises they have made. The MacArthur-supported program followed up six months after town halls with the Governors of Sokoto and Jigawa states in the northwestern region of the country to see what progress the governors had made on their promises.
