Nigeria’s 2017 audit report for the federation was released in December 2019. The report showed no significant improvement in the management of public resources by government agencies. It also showed a general lack of transparency in the award and use of public funds.
The good news is that there was a slight improvement in the submission of audited accounts by government agencies. On today’s episode, we will be discussing the key findings from Nigeria’s 2017 audit report, key recommendations by the Auditor General, and the role of CSOs and anti-corruption agencies in ensuring MDAs comply with the recommendations in the report.
We sat down with the co-founder and CEO of the integrity organization, Mr. Soji Apampa, to discuss collective action against corruption in the business sector in Nigeria.
He enlightened us about existing collective action initiatives (CAI) on business integrity, challenges faced and successes so far. He also gave some good advice to businesses on actions they can take to overcome corruption when conducting business in a Nigeria.
We expanded to Lagos and Kaduna, launched a new story book and 2 comic books, and trained over 50 teachers on anti-corruption education. We have so many stories to tell from this year and more exciting plans for next year. We hope you enjoy listening to this episode.
