As Africa’s most populous country and as one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, Nigeria is not immune to corruption challenges. Over the past decades, Nigeria has developed an impressive array of legal frameworks and set-up numerous institutions to combat corruption more effectively. Nevertheless, Nigeria continues to struggle with the impact of corruption on the day-to-day lives of its citizens. Corruption undermines the Government’s ability to provide public services, rule of law and public security. Corruption directly affects the well-being of the country’s population and its ability to rise out of poverty. With support from the European Union, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is implementing a project on “Support to Anti-Corruption in Nigeria” (FED/2012/306-220)(NGAX60) involving fourteen (14) beneficiary Agencies.
One of the Agencies supported by the project is the Technical Unit on Governance and Anti-corruption Reforms (TUGAR), which has the mandate of being the think-tank of Nigeria’s official anti-corruption community.

It was set up in 2006 to meet the critical need for a rigorous approach to policy making and governance, informed by systematic empirical data collection and analysis. TUGAR has the mandate to analyze policies, provide advice and make country-specific diagnostics on corruption and related governance issues.
