At a two-day capacity building workshop for civil society organisation (CSOs), the need to mobilise non-state actors and related groups to enhance capacity in taxation was brought to the fore. The workshop was organised by Niger Delta Budget Monitoring Group, (NDEBUMOG), with the support from Oxfam. It focused on improving capacity of participants on taxation, revenues tracking, fair taxation, public finance expenditure monitoring, expenditure evaluation and influencing. One of the conclusions resulting from the workshop was that social equity should be promoted and stakeholders should be connected with effective service delivery. Experiences regarding measuring compliance and engaging with local governments and the informal sector were also shared.
