Don't Miss Out-- Join the Movement to End Corruption in Nigeria!

The Executive Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes commission, Ibrahim Lamorde, speaking through his Chief of Staff, Dr Jimmy Imo stated has that "the battle against corruption has become so sophisticated with the advent of modern technology such that the Anti Corruption Internet Database [ACID] will be very useful in fighting corruption and financial crimes."

On the 24th of July 2012, at the Peninsula Hotels and Towers, Lekki, Lagos, the Anti-Corruption Internet Database (ACID) project began to take definite shape. In a collaborative effort to phase out the scourge of Corruption in Nigeria, 42 Civil Society Organisations, 7 Media Houses, 7 Government Agencies and 1 Professional Body from the 6 geo-political zones of the nation converged at the conference hall of the hotel. The objective was to further public engagement with the ACID project, by seeking stakeholders' input and participation in the development of the first indigenous anti-corruption internet database in Nigeria.

The engagement of stakeholders in the ACID project falls into five Thematic Areas:
● Public Project Monitoring
● Anticorruption Advocacy
● Media
● Budget Monitoring
● Freedom of Information Act
