…Deletes Twitter account

SWITZERLAND, SEPTEMBER 13 – Reactions have trailed the appointment of Budgit co-founder, Seun Onigbinde, as a Technical Adviser in the Ministry of Budget and National Planning. He has also reportedly deleted his twitter account.

Communication Associate of Budgit, Shakir Akorede, confirmed the news to the media on Friday in a telephone conversation.

He said, while the news was true, it had nothing to do with Budgit which is still dedicated to holding government accountable.

Akorede said, “It’s true, however, I need to point out that this has nothing to do with Budgit. As you may recall, Seun has been absent from the company for some time. This is a situation that affects Seun as a person, nothing to do with Budgit.

“This is in his personal capacity as a Nigerian,” Akorede insisted.

Onigbinde co-founded Budgit, a social enterprise dedicated to calling for fiscal transparency in government.
