ANTI-CORRUPTION AND TRANSPARENCY MONITORING UNIT (ACTU)

INTRODUCTION/HISTORY

The ANTI-CORRUPTION AND TRANSPARENCY MONITORING UNIT was formally inaugurated in Federal University of Technology, Minna on 7th March, 2011.  This was consequent upon the request of the ICPC to the Federal Government in making the staff of the MDAs part of the fight against corruption.  Since the Commission and its personnel cannot be everywhere, Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies are to establish Anti – Corruption and Transparency Units (ACTUs). The members of these ACTUs are to serve as the eyes and ears of the commission in their various offices and as members of staff, they are in a good position to identify corruption-prone areas in their administrative systems.

VISSION: To be the foremost “agent of change”,  in the war against corruption and corrupt practices in the polity, and thereby restore Nigeria to the enviable standard of respectability, dignity and honour within the country of nations.
