According to Omoyele Sowore of SaharaReporters.com, technology has now made it possible for Nigerians to tackle the problems of their country and government. Sowore, speaking at the 2011 Personal Democracy Forum Conference in New York City, discusses the launch of his new website, which gives Nigerian citizens the ability to report on "offshore corruption." Using public information available in the United States, Sowore is able to document for Nigerians what "criminals" are doing with Nigerian money in Washington, D.C.
