    Gombe State has been ranked first in North East and 7th among 36 states in 2022 Transparency and Integrity Index report.

    This was contained in report released earlier this month by the Centre for Fiscal Transparency and Integrity Watch (CeFTIW).

    According to the Centre, the annual Transparency & Integrity Index is aimed at promoting transparency, monitoring public sector expenditure and strengthening the integrity mechanisms of public institutions.

    In the exercise, the Centre used data available from official websites of state governments and federal MDAs to establish the extent of institutions’ disclosure of vital information relating to good governance within the public domain using 5 variables namely; Website Integrity, Fiscal Transparency, Open Procurement, Anti-Corruption, Human Resources and Inclusion, Citizens Engagement, and Local Government Transparency.

    As indicated in the rating of the 36 states of the Federation, Gombe State is ranked 2nd in fiscal transparency, 3rd in citizens engagement and 6th in website integrity.

    This latest independent assessment of the information obtained from the official website of the Gombe State Government is a further proof of the commitment of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya’s administration to improving transparency and accountability.
