As a result of the seemingly endless potential of ICTs to fight corruption, Say No Campaign developed and launched a new technology, in the form of mobile phone application called “DoroCorruption”, to facilitate the reporting of corruption; provide access to official information; monitor the efficiency and integrity of social services, enhance the efficiency and transparency of public administration and improve interaction with citizens.
Through Dorocorruption radio program on Wazobia FM, Abuja, The Chairman, Lawyers Network Against Corruption(LAWNAC), Barr. Ezenwa Anumnu equipped citizens with clues on the existing corruption channels in Nigeria, and how best they can leverage on them for maximum result, with emphasis on credibility of the report.
While it is important to note that DoroCorruption mobile app is not the only existing corruption report app in Nigeria, the most important means for citizens to participate in the fight against corruption is by reporting cases of corruption as it happens in their various spaces with clear evidence in form of video clips or attached documents.
The President of Nigerian Bar Association, Barr. Folarin Aluko spoke on his collaboration with LAWNAC to engage citizens based on the reports gotten from the DoroCorruption mobile App, after a thorough investigation to ascertain the credibility of the information, while promising to protect the identity of citizens who wish to be kept anonymous.
Citizens with internet access can use their smartphones or computers to report corruption incidents almost directly; the corrupt practice, the recipient (s) and the institution that took or demanded it.
After a thorough breakdown of the App features, the Program Manager of Say No Campaign, Mr. James Ugochukwu urged listeners to strengthen the effectiveness and speed up the delivery of the DoroCorruption mobile app through greater engagement, commitment and participation.
