Following the high rate of poverty ravaging the country, Tunji Lardner, a social commentator and a convener for good governance had lamented  how corrupt leaders had caused abject poverty for Nigerians.

Lardner  however added  that what Nigerians  are facing is as a result of corrupt leaders that had mismanaged public funds.

Speaking at a  seminar organised by the West African NGO Network, WANGONET, he stated that the introduction of the portal will stand as a data base for people to have access directly to corruption cases that had put the nation into comatose.

“The essence of the portal is to show to Nigerians and the outside community who care to know  how corrupt practices and embezzlement caused by our public office holders  can be correlated to the poverty striking millions of Nigerians”, he lamented.
