Synopsis

The International Anti-Corruption Day has been observed annually, on 9 December, since the passage of the United Nations Conventions Against Corruption on 31 October 2003. The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) is a multilateral convention negotiated by members of the United Nations. It is the first global legally binding international anti-corruption instrument.

Nigeria has taken bold strides to reposition as Africa’s largest economy. The country presents an undeniable investment opportunity and the appetite is palpable from the flow of foreign direct investment into Nigeria over the last 5 years. This naturally comes with increased scrutiny on the perceived corruption within Nigeria as well as the strength and Independence of the Judicial System in enforcement of legal rights. Following a brief from the National Competitiveness Council of Nigeria, panellists were invited to give their insight on the reality on the ground. Discussions centered around proffering possible driven solution which are both sustainable and allow for private sector buy in.
