The Voices Against Corruption platform is an initiative of the Nigeria Civil Society designed and created to enhance citizen reporting of corruption in Nigeria. Via this Ushadihi based platform, citizens can report on actual corrupt acts they experience which would be reported real-time using Global Position System (GPS) mapping capabilities.
The platform receives complaint through multiple channels namely; phone call, SMS, twitter, Facebook, email and direct reporting onto the website.
Voices Against Corruption promotes inclusive oversight of public and private institutions by members of the public, thereby engendering public accountability and transparency. Working with anti-corruption agencies, citizens’ complaints and reports on the platform are closely monitored and acted upon by a steering committee made up of representatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), Bureau of Public Prosecution (BPP) for investigation and action.
Funding for the design and creation of this platform has been made possible by Trust Africa and CLEEN Foundation
