To eradicate corruption in the society, Nigerians must be united and join movements holding individual, groups and government accountable, a civic group has said.
The programme manager of the civil society organisation, YIAGA, Cynthia Mbamalum, said this at a competition organised, on Saturday, in Abuja, to celebrate the International Anti-Corruption Day with the theme: “United against Corruption for Development, Peace and Security.”
She said that the competition was aimed at creating online platforms that target corruption and that people can learn from and keep track of happenings.
According to her, the aim of the Bounce Corruption #Hack4Good project is to bring young minds together and develop technology solutions that will help promote the anti-corruption fight.
“How do we get citizens involved? Most times, you hear a case trending; and suddenly, you stop hearing about the case.”
The executive director YIAGA, Samson Itodo, urged Nigeria to get involved more strategically in the role in demanding good governance and nationhood.
According to him, the Bounce Corruption project is aimed at exposing, amplifying, empowering and creating awareness on the fight against corruption as adopted by government agencies and citizens
