A Non-Governmental Organisation, Legislative Initiative for Sustainable Development, LISDEL, has organised two-day training for journalists and members of civil society groups for capacity building on accountability and good governance.
The workshop centres towards strengthening accountability on Basic Health Care Provision Fund in Gombe State.
Dr Toyin Abdulkadir, Health Specialist from LISDEL, pointed that an assessment by the organisation indicated a gap in capacity building on accountability framework in Gombe State, hence a need for the training.

Comrade Alhassan Yahaya, CEO Saif Advocacy Foundation, a representative of Civil Society Organisations at the programme said, the training will improve advocacy techniques and accountability in the health sector.
