SaharaReporters on Monday published the phone numbers of Nigeria’s State governors on Facebook and Twitter as part of its efforts to enhance governmental transparency and accountability in the country.

By arming Nigerians with those contact numbers, SaharaReporters hopes to foster greater interaction and communication between voters and their State chief executives.

Governors in Nigeria enjoy some of the highest salaries in the country while their constituents and civil servants often struggle to make ends meet.

It was recently revealed, for example, that 26 States owe workers’ salaries, despite bailout funds received from the federal government just a few months ago.

Nigeria governorship aspirants have often campaigned on promises to improve infrastructure, education, and livelihoods of their constituents, but rarely deliver on those promises once they are in office.

In April, SaharaReporters published the direct lines of members of Nigeria’s National Assembly.
