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
● Budget Monitoring
● Freedom of Information Act
