#PFMDAILY 3: The Fiscal Responsibility Act empowers every Nigerian
The Fiscal Responsibility Act in section 51 empowers every Nigerian as follows:
“A person shall have legal capacity to enforce the provisions of this Act by obtaining prerogative orders or other remedies at the Federal High Court without having to show any special or particular interest”.
This is an unprecedented open door to improve transparency, accountability and popular participation in fiscal governance. Every Nigerian is encouraged to think of how best this provision could be utilised to further national development.
