The Internet today is playing a major role in governance as far as Citizens engagement is concerned. A group of developers have designed a performance index for states in Nigeria citizens and residents of these states can review the state leadership's performance in various areas like healthcare and education.

On their platform, statescore.com.ng they have carefully listed out all 36 states and the FCT, visitors can login via facebook and twitter, rate their state, view their scorecard (which contains score breakdowns and some historical analysis) and also share their scores with friends via social media. States are ranked based on crowdsourced ratings from signed up reviewers.

Though still at the beta stages, the platform is currently taking reviews before official launch. Data like this plays strong roles in keeping leaders and the government accountable. As Nigeria’s next election draws near (2019), citizens can from now begin registering and scoring their leaders, come 2019, these data will definitely come in handy.
