  • Background

    Strengthening integrity in public and private sphere and reducing corruption has been a priority for Nigeria for a number of years. However, corruption continues to be a significant impediment to economic growth and social advancement while discouraging business investments, adding to the high cost of doing business and eroding the confidence of the people of Nigeria in the government and its ability to deliver the dividends of democracy including the rule of law.

    The anti-corruption sector in Nigeria currently has a fairly good quality of legislative texts, statutes and mandates challenged by a lack of effective implementation. While a number of anti-corruption institutions are in operation, there is a critical risk of fragmentation and poor coordination in the anti-corruption sector within the country and a need to strengthen the capacities of law enforcement and corruption-prevention agencies.

    In order to strengthen this fight, the Government of Nigeria has entered into a funding agreement with the European Union (EU) for the implementation of the project: “Support to Anti-Corruption in Nigeria” (FED/2012/306-220) (NGAX60). Under the agreement, the implementation of the Project has been entrusted to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

    National Consultants for Police Training

     

    The Project Aims

    • To strengthen anti-corruption policy-making, coordination and monitoring mechanisms and to improve legislation;
    • To enhance institutional and operational capacity of anti-corruption agencies, the Police and the Judiciary, and to improve inter-agency cooperation; and
    • To empower Civil Society Organisations and to increase the provision of services and;
    • To enhance their participation in anti-corruption activities.

    The training targeting the police force is intended to assist the police force to play its significant role in fighting corruption as an institution. The justification of training for police on integrity, ethics and behavioural change is premised on the fact that the Nigeria Police Force is the largest and most widespread among all law enforcement institutions empowered to fight corruption, and hence it is the most critical and highly visible institution in government’s anti-corruption effort and the greatest public attention. It is also noteworthy to add that other anti-corruption agencies like EFCC and ICPC draw the bulk of their personnel from the Nigeria Police Force. Unfortunately, the Nigerian Police organization has consistently been under serious negative public criticisms. This image or public perception needs to be addressed. As an institution, the overall effectiveness of police personnel largely depends on the collective ability of the institution to win the cooperation and participation of the public. This can only be enhanced when the public perception of its professional integrity and work ethics are favourable. Therefore the Nigeria Police more than the other anti-corruption agencies deserve more attention and support in capacity building that will enhance their ability to manage impression through work attitudes and behavior.
