An innovative tech company, BudgIT Nigeria, has introduced on Twitter two new IT tools addressing problems faced by Nigerians.

The first, FOIVault, stores and gives access to recorded information held by the public sector requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

The FOI act was passed into law in 2011 and gives every Nigerian the right to access documents held by the public sector or any private organisation performing public roles.

This tool would totally encourage transparency in governance.

The second tool is, Find a Cop. It helps users search for the nearest police station in areas within Lagos. It also has emergency numbers.
