Citizenwatch

Promoting the involvement of residents in supporting and
improving Local Government Areas performance.

Citizenwatch is an NGO that aims to promote the involvement of residents in supporting and improving Local Government Areas (LGA) performance. The purpose and design of the project is to create an off-the-shelf product that other citizens living anywhere in the country and even internationally can use to monitor, support and influence what happens in their neighborhood, and how their taxes are spent.

For capitalists, the value proposition will tie the initiative to augmenting the value of community property. For the politicians, a quick win to build support for re-election of their party. For civil servants, supportive citizens and appreciation of their efforts.
