Major Current Activities
FollowTaxes believes that insufficient fiscal transparency in taxation undermine citizens’ confidence in their governments’ ability to get taxpayers to pay their taxes and may deprive governments of revenues needed to mitigate poverty and work towards a sustainable development. The group’s ultimate aim is to lead efforts to improve fiscal transparency in taxation, good governance, and participatory democracy to restore dignity in the Nigeria public sector.
