Symposium On Anti-Corruption: Anti-Corruption Fight in Nigeria: A Lost Battle or a Work in Progress?

Abuja, Nigeria

December 8, 2023

The African Center for Governance, Asset Recovery and Sustainable Development is delighted to join the Law Reform Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Bwari Branch, Abuja as a resource person in the one-day symposium on Anti-Corruption held today, December 8, 2023.

 The symposium, themed “Anti-Corruption Fight in Nigeria: A Lost Battle or a Work in Progress?” aligns with the global efforts to address the issue of pervasive corruption and to mark the International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9, 2023. It provides a platform for stakeholders to deliberate on the state of Nigeria’s anti-corruption initiatives and chart a course for future progress.  

The African Center is honored to share perspectives and insights on the challenges and successes encountered in Nigeria’s ongoing battle against corruption, particularly with the Nigeria Bar Association. The opportunity to engage with fellow experts, legal professionals, and the wider public is essential to the collective efforts to foster transparency, accountability, and the rule of law.  The African Center wishes to commend the Nigerian Bar, particularly the Bwari Branch for this initiative, and urges the NBA to implement the new Rules of the Legal Profession, recently amended in May 2023 to incorporate anti-corruption and anti-money laundering reporting obligations.

The African Center for Governance, Asset Recovery, and Sustainable Development (otherwise known as “the African Center”) is an independent, civil society organization with headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria. The African Center collaborates with national governments, international and regional organizations, as well as non-governmental organizations to promote good governance, sustainable development, and the rule of law.
