Corruption is at endemic levels in Nigeria and some public officials are unaccountable. Formal and informal institutions do not deliver standard services, business and investment environment do not comply to regulatory and ethical standards, poverty is growing, inequality is deepening, and wealth is concentrated in few hands. Thus, the Strengthening Citizens’ Resistance Against Prevalence of Corruption (SCRAP-C) through its Upright4Nigeria; Stand against corruption campaign aims to influence social norms and attitudes that help corruption thrive in Nigeria with a view to effect a social change.
Driven by a group of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), the campaign is designed to challenge the current beliefs that make corruption acceptable in Nigeria. It leverages on social capital and social networks to promote a corruption averse mentality in the hope to instill positive values such as Honesty, Integrity and Transparency (HIT) to change the corruption narrative in Nigeria. SCRAP-C Project is funded with UKaid from the UK government and the people of Britain.
