Reporting Corruption in Nigeria∶ A Workshop for Selected Journalists

Promoting Democratic and Good Governance

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in partnership with the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) and Transparency International (Nigeria) are organizing a training workshop for selected journalists from the print media, radio and television from across the country on reporting corruption in Nigeria.


Despite the bold steps and initiatives Nigeria since independence, and especially since the return of democracy in 1999, the country has only been to record modest success in its anti-corruption efforts. As the whole world is preparing to celebrate the International Day of Anti-Corruption on December 9, 2021 KAS, CISLAC and TI (Nigeria) will be training journalists, who will invariably act as multipliers in the society by reporting effectively and adequately on cases of corruption, and thereby prevent or reduce corruption in Nigeria. At this workshop, anti-corruption experts and media consultants will be brought to offer their expert views, opinions and recommendations on ways the media can cover, report and investigate cases of corruption in line with global best practices. Amongst topics to be covered are History of Corruption and its Effects on National Development; The Nexus between Corruption and Politics in Nigeria: Effect on Anti-Corruption, Law Enforcement & Security; Trans-National Corruption and Nigeria: Asset Recovery, Asset Declaration, Financial Readings; Fighting Corruption in Nigeria: Achievements and Challenges of Anti-Corruption Agencies (ICPC & EFCC); Corruption in Public Procurement in the Civil Service: Recommendations for Improvement; How Electoral Fraud undermines Leadership Recruitment Process in Nigeria; Conflict of Interest and other Banana Peels that Undermine Equity; Reporting Corruption in the Age of Fake News; OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence); Security and Safety for Journalists reporting Corruption; Review of High Profile Cases of Corruption in Nigeria since 1999; and Reporting Nigeria’s Progress on International Anti-Corruption Commitments. The seminar is part of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s support to democracy, rule of law and good governance in Nigeria.
