INTEGRITY ORGANISATION LIMITED GTE is an anti-corruption, research and advocacy organization concerned with the issues of accountability and transparency in Public and business life. It was founded in 1995 during the Abacha regime as a direct reaction to the corruption and poor governance of Nigeria represented by that era. INTEGRITY has had a history of credible involvement in high profile issues and it has built a reputation for tactful, high profile, high impact handling of engagement with supply side actors on various issues. As a result of the need to have a specific arm that would deal with issues arising in the private sector while still focusing on the Public domain, it gave birth to the establishment of The Convention on Business Integrity.

The Buhari Administration in its 1st Year in Office has struggled to convince Nigerians it has what it takes to bring about the much-needed change promised. The new government campaigned on the basis that it would improve security, curb corruption, create jobs and grow the economy. Are Nigerians right to be skeptical about what has been achieved so far? Citizens appear divided over the performance but can anyone really articulate what the issues are? Knowing where Nigeria now is in relation to where the voters expected it to be after one year might help them identify the specific steps they need to take if they are to achieve the change they seek through the Buhari Administration. This article seeks to be one useful contribution towards that quest. With a clear mandate to deal with “security, corruption and the economy”, how much has really changed in the last year?

The Convention on Business Integrity (CBi) and the INTEGRITY Organization (Limited by Guarantee) held a symposium in Abuja on March 10th, 2016 (10h30 -13h00). The aim of the symposium was to spark a debate on how to effectively fund and sustain anti-corruption efforts in the Nigeria. For the fight against corruption to be effective and far reaching, there needs to be concrete ways of funding, driving and sustaining anti-corruption efforts in Nigeria that complement’s the president’s body language. There needs to be more support from leaders of the business community, all arms of government, civil society and the general public. Extensive deliberations on finding an effective Nigerian response to this global problem are needed. As a former EFCC Chairman once noted, “if Nigeria does not kill corruption, corruption will kill us.” Continue Reading
ABUJA, MARCH 10, 2016. The Convention on Business Integrity (CBi) and the INTEGRITY Organization (Limited by Guarantee) will on this day hold a symposium intended to spark a debate on how to effectively fund and sustain anti-corruption efforts in the Country.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s position on corruption has been so clear that it is so often seen in his “body language.” Many perceive this administration’s fight against corruption to be more of the same witch-hunt tactics used by previous administrations to settle political scores. For others, the corruption fight is urgently needed but currently personal, and embodied in President Buhari. For the fight against corruption to be effective and far reaching, there needs to be concrete ways of funding, driving and sustaining anti-corruption efforts in Nigeria that complement’s the president’s body language. There needs to be more support from leaders of the business community, all arms of government, civil society and the general public. Extensive deliberations on finding an effective Nigerian response to this global problem are now needed. As a former EFCC Chairman once noted, “if Nigeria does not kill corruption, corruption will kill us.”
The Special Guest of honour at this event is His Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, the Vice- President, The Federal Republic of Nigeria, while Prof. Itse Sagay, SAN, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption will chair the symposium. Other notable speakers would include organisations/ individuals involved in AntiCorruption work.
It is anticipated the event will have in attendance representatives/decision makers/stakeholders in key organizations involved in or affected by anti-corruption work in Nigeria including Donor Agencies, International and Local Financial Institutions, Anti-Corruption Agencies, Media Houses (local & International), Civil Society, Local Philanthropic Foundations, the Private Sector and the National Assembly.
We hope that this program in addition to sensitizing and preferring viable solutions to the issue, will also stimulate reflection and discourse by all stakeholders on the rationale for funding and sustaining Anti-Corruption work in Nigeria.
Our organisations, CBi and INTEGRITY’s vision is “A society with zero tolerance for corruption” while our mission is “Through visionary leadership, creativity and effective implementation of our ideas, we empower people, their transactions, systems and institutions against corruption.”
