BACKGROUND TO ACORN PROGRAMME

The British Department for International Development (DFID) now known as Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has been supporting Nigeria’s anti-corruption effort by ensuring stronger incentives not to loot government resources and changing public attitudes that will increasingly disapprove of corrupt activities.

It has been achieving this Anti-Corruption in Nigeria (ACORN)programme through the provision of support over three years (2017-2020) to Nigerian authorities and civil society to tackle corruption by reducing public tolerance and ensuring those who are corrupt are caught and punished. The programme has two components:

1. Sanctions: supporting Nigerian authorities (including anti-corruption agencies) to put in place effective legislation and public policies to combat corruption, and to ensure looters are effectively investigated, prosecuted and convicted and;

2. Society and Social Norms: supporting Nigerian civil society to maintain public support for anti-corruption and progressively change social norms that currently facilitate (or even encourage).
