ANTI-CORRUPTION ORGANS AND THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA
Abstract: The Economic and Financial Corruption Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), the Code of Conduct Tribunal and so on, are agencies combating corruption in Nigeria, but the greediness of those in authority, government’s lack of will to indict some past and present public office holders, lack of discipline and integrity, delayed justice on those standing trial on corruption cases, have hampered the enforcement of the laws or fair determination of corruption cases in Nigeria. The study examined the various anti-corruption organs and the fight against corruption in Nigeria. Our findings are that these anti-corruption organs in Nigeria are also plagued with its problems such as poor funding from the government that established them, bad governance, ineffective democracy, politics driven by ethnical chauvinism, inefficiency of the various organs to tackle corruption, without any form of bias or favouritism. The study concludes that, although there are adequate laws or machinery to curb corruption in Nigeria, the activities of the anti-corruption organs should continually be made public, transparent and accountable so as to win the confidence of members of the Nigerian society.
Key words: Anit-corruption, fight against corruption, Nigeria
