The Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation was founded in 1998 for the purpose of promoting national unity, good governance, and social justice. Previous support enabled it to deploy an election monitoring platform which significantly contributed to the outcome of the 2015 general elections. With this award, the Yar’Adua Foundation is mobilizing communities and amplifying corruption-related investigative reports by developing anti-corruption messaging, infographics, and video vignettes of anti-corruption successes. It is also sponsoring town hall meetings and policy dialogues. The award contributes to the atmosphere of transparency, accountability and good governance by sharing examples of anti-corruption successes and expanding the reach of investigative reports.
