World Bulletin / News Desk

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari will have his campaign promises tracked to see how faithful he would be to them, a prominent local civil society group behind the initiative said Monday. 

"Buhari Metre is a tracking platform to track implementation of all his campaign promises," Hassan Idayat, director of the Center for Democracy and Development, told Anadolu Agency shortly after the launch. "We were able to track 174 campaign promises for Buhari."

"Now post election, what we are doing is to monitor the implementation of every campaign promise and the whole idea is to promote democratic accountability."

The launch of the Buhari Metre was attended by prominent civil society leaders in the Nigerian capital Abuja, where initiators took turns to explain how it works.

A website for the Buhari Metre has also been launched.
