Constitution Lab attends Fiscal Responsibility Workshop

On the 4th of November, 2021, our Project Officer, Habeeb Moshood, represented us at the Fiscal Responsibility Workshop organized by OrderPaper and Fiscal Responsibility Commission. The event hosted at De Remembrandt Hotel started with an opening speech by the FRC Chairman, Chief Victor Muruako Esq

Participants had an opportunity to make paper presentations on “Strengthening Fiscal Responsibility at all Government Levels”. The discourse covered the need for FRC to be domesticated in all states and why they should be properly funded.

Our Project Manager also participated in another paper presentation on ” The Importance of Fiscal Responsibility in Ensuring Transparency and Accountability in Governance”. During the presentation, concerns were raised about the need for State Houses of Assembly to be more proactive in stemming corruption and ensuring policies are strengthened to help FRC and other sister agencies at the state level.

A communique was issued at the end of the workshop. See it below.
