BudgIT Hour July 19, 2022 Edition:
BudgIT International finance and administration officer appeared on BudgIT hour on OK FM during her visit to Liberia to discuss the purpose of her visit to Liberia.
She highlighted the work of BudgIT at the international level that is focused on giving power back to the citizens by holding their leaders accountable for the management and mismanagement of public funds.
;Making some grate news that went viral on other radio stations and on the internet, she said; By holding leaders accountable about the management of public resources will mean, citizens MUST understand how the budget is being crafted and through which they can hold their leaders accountable and make them work in the interest of their people.
Over the years, Citizens in different African countries have not taking their national budget as their responsibilities but rather leave the decision with key government officials to decide how public funds are spent. Madam Titus believes this is one of the main reasons for Africa’s underdevelopment.
Tons of calls were received during the show while other tried but couldn’t get through especially comparing Liberia to other African countries that are far ahead.
All the callers expressed their gratitude about BudgIT extending their work to Liberia and promised to work with BudgIT’s team in the field.
