Introducing Our Covid-19 & Integrity Campaign #Covid19AndIntegrity
Together, we can beat Coronavirus in Nigeria by acting with integrity.#Covid19AndIntegrity– Onyinye Ough, ED, Step Up Nigeria
As Nigeria tackles Coronavirus, collective effort is needed to ensure that we reduce spread of the virus. Everyone has a role to play and citizens must support government’s effort to tackle the virus. We must act with integrity doing the right thing all the time even when no one is looking or everyone else is doing the wrong thing.
To successfully limit the spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria, citizens must be transparent and act with integrity at all times. Stay home if you can, if you have to move around, stay safe, observe good hand and personal hygiene, adhere to the guidelines of the lockdown protocol and keep a safe distance from other people.
To amplify the importance of integrity, We have also commenced a special series on our podcast on #Covid19&Corruption. Visit our BLOG to listen to our most recent episodes. Here are some examples of cases in Nigeria where a lack of integrity on the part of 1 individual has led to the infection and eventual death of other Nigerians.
NERDC Approves Halima’s Vote as Reading Tool in Schools
We are excited to announce that in partnership with the MacArthur Foundation, the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council has approved Halima’s Vote as a reading tool for civic education in primary schools across Nigeria.
Over 65,000 primary schools in Nigeria will now be able to use Halima’s Vote to teach about the negative impacts of vote-buying and corruption on good service delivery in society.
Thanks to NERDC & MacArthur Foundation for seeing the value of ‘catching them young’ in the fight against corruption.
