The majority of Nigerians consider high level corruption as being destructive for the country (Nigerian Poverty Assessment 207, Global Corruption Barometer 2010).
Nigeria ranked 134 out of 178 countries in the Transparency International Corruption Index (2010) and 63% of Nigerians reported paying a bribe for a public service over the course of a year (Global Corruption Barometer 2010).
Our work aims to increase public trust and confidence in the rule of law in anti-corruption efforts through an increase in the number of successful investigations and prosecutions. We aim to:
- strengthen capacity in anti-corruption agencies in the areas of strategic planning, coordination, implementation, monitoring and evaluation
- increase skills and capacity to manage and conduct investigations and prosecutions
- improve the data management and analysis of cases
- strengthen institutions so that they meet international standards of legislature and regulatory development (drafting, implementation and monitoring).
What people say about J4A's work
'This is a good model for investigations and for our organisation. It has given us the impetus for better co-ordinated investigations, and for clarity about the characteristics of various kinds of cases we handle, especially major cases.'

'This training has widened my knowledge in the area of financial crimes investigations. This course provides the platform to be well equipped for future challenges in the fight against corruption. The Major Case Management (MCM) model is of a high standard and in line with global best practice. The combined law enforcement task force investigations on the Warff and Tin-Can Island in Lagos adopted the MCM and the result was fantastic.'
