The First Think Tank Legislative Liaison Officer came into office in 2008. In its first outing, the Catholic Secretariat Think Tank Report on Democratic Budgeting impacted in the area of influencing the legislative decision making, resulting in the creation of a Senate Implementation Committee on Inclusive Budgeting. This creation was a parliamentary sub-committee under the Appropriation Committee of the Senate, and it was given the mandate to study and make recommendation to the Senate on the framework for implementing “Inclusive Budgeting in Nigeria”. This particular milestone has also reinforced the critical place of accountability in the democratic process, especially in the use of public financial resources.
