Providing avenues to report corruption and protecting whistleblowers contributes to the virtuous cycle of accountability, transparency, and participation. The Independent Corrupt Practices & Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), one of Nigeria's leading anti-corruption agencies, plays a crucial role in this cycle. ICPC audited the systems and processes of 360 government ministries, departments, and agencies for corruption vulnerability, and tracked over 1,000 publicly funded social development projects across the country for value for money. Many proposed appointees for government positions were also screened for ethics and integrity. In the first three quarters of 2022, ICPC’s activities triggered 15 articles in Nigerian media and journalism outlets. These news articles highlight the challenges of corruption and how citizens can hold their government accountable.
