The Cross River State chapter of the African Action Congress (AAC) on Monday in Calabar said it has obtained the details of Cross River Local Government allocations from 2015 to 2019.

The party said this was in line with its resolve to ensure “promote accountability” in governance, a statement signed by the State chapter chairman, Mr. Agba Jalingo said.

This followed an FOI request by the party’s legal representatives in a letter addressed to the Minister of Finance dated May 26, 2019.

The party had requested for “detailed information” about allocations and funding as well as funding from international donors from June 2015 till May 2019.

And, the party said “we will partner with media organizations in Cross River State, as well as national and International outfits to serialize the release of this vital information.”

The party also called for well meaning Cross Riverians to continue demanding for information from elected and appointed public officials in order to ensure they enjoy the dividends of democracy.
