Specialised Reports

Transparency Deficit: A report on HIV/AIDS Funding in Nigeria 

This report is the major output of an American Jewish World Service supported programme implemented by IAP. The programme is titled Promoting Accountability and Transparency in HIV Funding (PATH). Transparency Deficit scrutinised HIV/AIDS funding related issues, the performance of the state institutions responsible for HIV/AIDS funding against the background of corruption in the nation’s health sector. The report looks at why, despite the seemingly large amounts of money being pumped into the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, results have been slow and minimal and makes practical recommendations to the federal and state governments, public institutions and the donor community.

Nigeria Corruption Index 2005, 2007
With funding support from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the highly regarded Nigeria Corruption Index (2005 and 2007) are surveys which collated and analyzed responses from ordinary Nigerians on their daily encounters with various forms of corrupt practices at different levels. Rather than mere perception of the degree of corruption, the survey approximates the magnitude of corrupt practices and provides benchmarks of integrity based on actual incidences. The Nigerian Police topped the league table of the most corrupt institutions with incidences of reported bribery standing at 96 per cent. Next was the Power Holding Corporation of Nigeria (formerly National Electric Power Authority, NEPA), and the Customs and Excise Department which posted 83 and 65 per cents respectively. Other corruption-ridden organizations included the Ministry of Education, while at the Immigration and Passport Office, survey respondents reported incidence rate of 63 and 56 per cents respectively.

Nigeria: The Bench and The Challenge of Corruption
Being an important pillar of integrity, it is crucial that the judiciary remains independent and impartial and Nigeria: The Bench and The Challenge of Corruption is one of the tools designed by to promote judicial integrity. This report is the outcome of pro-active research conducted by IAP, over several months in 2006, with funding support from the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA). It is designed to raise awareness on the linkages between corruption and development, and to highlight the issue of transparency and accountability in the Nigerian judiciary and the importance of a judiciary with integrity for Nigeria’s relatively young democratic experience. Written in accessible language, the report examines corruption in the larger Nigerian society, situates the arguments within the structure of the nation’s legal system by broadly summarising the Nigeria legal system with particular emphasis on Lagos and Kano states. In addition, it examines, in more details, the burden of corruption in the judiciary. The report also looks at the various constraints affecting the effectiveness of the judiciary which fosters and even encourages corrupt practices, and finally makes useful and practical recommendations that is expected to curb the vice of corruption in this key governance institution.
