Phone numbers of serving governors in Nigeria leaked (documents)
There is frenzy over the media, following the publication of Nigerian governors' phone numbers.
A document containing unconfirmed phone numbers of Nigeria’s state governors was published on Facebook and Twitter by SaharaReporters as a part of their efforts "to enhance governmental transparency and accountability in the country".
According to the news outfit, arming Nigerians with those contact numbers, foster greater interaction and communication between voters and their states' chief executives.

In the words of Sahara Reporters: "Governors in Nigeria enjoy some of the highest salaries in the country while their constituents and civil servants often struggle to make ends meet. It was recently revealed, for example, that 26 States owe workers’ salaries, despite bailout funds received from the federal government just a few months ago.
Nigeria governorship aspirants have often campaigned on promises to improve infrastructure, education, and livelihoods of their constituents, but rarely deliver on those promises once they are in office."
It would be recalled that in April, Sahara Reporters published the direct lines of members of Nigeria's legislature at the National Assembly.
