Probe NACA now: Group told Tinubu - ITREALMS
The call came in the light of recent developments surrounding the appointment of Dr. Temitope Ilori as the new Director-General of NACA by President Tinubu.


WAAIDS, represented by its Coordinator, Wole Adedoyin, stressed the critical importance of ensuring transparency and accountability within governmental organizations, particularly those tasked with addressing pressing public health concerns such as HIV/AIDS. The organization believes that a comprehensive probe into NACA's accounts is necessary to safeguard public trust and ensure that allocated funds are utilized effectively and efficiently.

President Tinubu's recent appointment of Dr. Temitope Ilori as the head of NACA has prompted WAAIDS to raise concerns regarding the agency's financial management practices. As a prominent advocacy group dedicated to combating HIV/AIDS and supporting affected communities, WAAIDS is committed to ensuring that governmental institutions responsible for addressing this global health issue operate with the highest standards of integrity and accountability.

WAAIDS emphasized that the fight against HIV/AIDS requires not only medical interventions but also robust governance mechanisms to ensure that resources are utilized judiciously. The organization contends that any lapses or irregularities in the financial management of NACA could undermine the effectiveness of efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in Nigeria and jeopardize the well-being of millions of people living with the virus.

The appointment of Dr. Temitope Ilori presents an opportune moment for President Tinubu's administration to demonstrate its commitment to transparency and good governance. WAAIDS urges President Tinubu to seize this opportunity by initiating a comprehensive investigation into NACA's accounts, with a focus on identifying any potential financial mismanagement or discrepancies.

WAAIDS reaffirmed its unwavering support for initiatives aimed at combating HIV/AIDS in Nigeria and stands ready to collaborate with the government in fostering transparency and accountability within NACA and other relevant agencies. The organization remains steadfast in its commitment to advocating for the rights and well-being of individuals affected by HIV/AIDS and calls upon all stakeholders to prioritize the effective management of resources in the fight against this epidemic.

Finally, Writers Against AIDS reiterates its appeal to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to heed the call for a probe into NACA's accounts and take decisive action to uphold the principles of transparency and accountability in the administration of public funds allocated for combating HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.

Writers Against AIDS (WAAIDS) is a leading advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and supporting affected communities through creative expression and grassroots initiatives. 

Founded in 2011, WAAIDS brings together writers, artists, activists, and community leaders to promote education, prevention, and advocacy efforts aimed at combating HIV/AIDS in Nigeria and beyond.
