Nigeria has made progress advancing transparency, accountability, and anti-corruption agendas. This progress is reflected in the adoption of commitments through international fora and also in the launch of platforms to disclose information previously not available to the public. It is also evident in the innovative work led by a vibrant community of civil society organizations disclosing data, sharing it in ways that are relevant to citizens, and promoting the uptake of this data by experts, media, and citizens to demand accountability.
This review is part of the Transparency and Accountability Initiative´s (TAI) Data for Accountability Initiative (D4Acc) and aims to assess progress and remaining challenges around the use of data for anti-corruption in Nigeria. It builds on previous findings by TAI on using data to fight corruption in Nigeria and focuses on the political and technical dynamics hindering the use of data on public procurement and tracing illicit assets.
Global Integrity is the learning partner in this initiative. In this role Global Integrity works with TAI and partners to gather evidence and answer learning questions collectively agreed in the shared learning agenda.
