CLEEN Foundation with the generous support of Trust Africa, recently organised a Capacity Building Workshop for Security Operatives and stakeholders in a bid to fight corruption in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

In a speech delivered by the COO and Director Institutional Support, Mr. Peter Maduoma, this Capacity Building workshop is one of a series of activities under the CLEEN Foundation’s Voices against Corruption project conceptualized to contribute to addressing the issue of corruption by providing a platform for citizens’ involvement and also supporting the relevant agencies saddled with the responsibility of reducing corruption in Nigeria. The need to build public confidence that these agencies have the capacity to deliver on their mandate cannot be overemphasized. The way and manner in which public complaints and reports are received, handled and treated goes a long way to impacting on the confidence level of citizens as related to the respective agencies.

 

Participants at the Workhop

“For us, given the gravity of the issue such as corruption, these agencies set up by the state need to be more effective to address public concerns and reports in a timely and effective manner to boost the confidence of the citizens on these agencies and for on security institutions at large. With the current corruption challenges confronting us collectively, the need for effectiveness in the mandate delivery of the various anti-graft and law enforcement agencies through better public relations and effective handling of corruption reports is of paramount importance to the citizens. It is with this in mind that CLEEN Foundation is organizing this important workshop. The voices-against-corruption project aims to popularise the use of modern technology in the fight against corruption in Nigeria. This workshop therefore is organized to:

Further sensitize partner agencies and draw attention to complaints reported by citizens through the online platform.
Build the capacity of selected personnel of partner agencies on voices against corruption project on how to use the online platform.
This remark will not be complete without thanking Trust Africa for the support to CLEEN Foundation and our different implementation partners. For us at CLEEN, your commitment and presence here today, indicates to us the importance you attach to the subject matter of this gathering. On behalf of the CLEEN Foundation, I once more officially and heartily welcome you all to this Workshop and wish you fruitful deliberations,” he said.
