CLEEN Foundation Holds a Tweetmeet towards Fostering Citizens’ Support for the War against Corruption in Nigeria

The CLEEN  Foundation   (formerly known as Centre for Law Enforcement  Education)  is a non-governmental organization  established  in January  1998 with the mission  of promoting  public safety, security and accessible justice through the strategies of empirical research, legislative advocacy, demonstration programmes and publications, in partnership with government, civil society and the private sector.

Since December  2013, CLEEN Foundation  is leading the implementation  of the Accountable  Governance  for Justice  and  Security  (AGJS)  project  in Nigeria  as part of a consortium  led by Partners for Democratic  Change (Partners), a global organization   with  over  25  years  experience   at  the  forefront   of  civil  society capacity building and good governance promotion. Other members of the consortium are Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) in Sierra Leone, Institute for War and Peace Reporting, Centre for Democratic Development (CDD), Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC) and BudgIT also in Nigeria. The project aims at building more accountable institutions in both Sierra Leone and Nigeria by enhancing institutional transparency and preventing impunity for those who engage in corruption and transnational organized crime (TOC).

As a civil   society   organization    at   forefront   of   justice   sector   reforms,   the CLEEN Foundation as an integral part of its workplan on the AccessNG Project is currently implementing town hall meetings across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria and airing radio program on Kapital FM, Abuja with a view to educate and sensitize the members of the public on strategic outlets through which they can engage in the fight against corruption in Nigeria. These program activities are featuring leading anti-graft agencies and other non-state actors involved in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

Therefore, CLEEN Foundation has proposed to facilitate similar meeting to reach the Nigerian citizens within the online community. This step was born out of our conviction that the anti-graft agencies have two different publics to engage. That is, the virtual and offline communities. We believe this strategic engagement between the anti-graft agencies (EFCC & ICPC) and Nigerian citizens will greatly enhance the understanding of citizens on the work of the Commissions. This meeting is also expected to offer a mixed perspective and provide awareness on how the citizens can collaborate with the anti-graft agencies to report incidences of corruption. The detail of the program is thus provided:

Through this sustained efforts across Nigeria, the CLEEN Foundation hopes to stimulate citizens’ engagement, open government conversation and generate crosscutting   ideas   to   check   corrupt   practices   within   government institutions in Nigeria.
The program schedule is thus provided:

Date: Tuesday, 20/09/2016

Guests: EFCC & ICPC

Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Venue: (@officialefcc, @ICPC_PE, @cleenfoundation, #AccessNG)
