The fight against corruption by civil society organizations cannot be overemphasized. A lot of work is being done, resources expended and huge impact achieved, but whether the achievements have contributed to a real decrease in corruption in Nigeria is a question that still begs for an answer. Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index recent answer to this question is NO.
Fighting corruption requires more than half-measures; especially where corruption is widespread. Based on research, there are three measures in fighting corruption: Prevention, Detection and Prosecution. We will attribute the cause of decades of the anti-corruption fight which hasn't yielded many results to the fact that the focus had been mostly on detection, with less focus on prevention and successful prosecution. To fight corruption in truth, all these three measures must be put in action simultaneously. Ace World Africa believes that infiltrating the thoughts of the Nigerian citizens through audiovisuals is the missing piece to tackle the root cause of corruption.
Our goals and objectives include:
Build a stronger Nigerian society by redirecting focus and encouraging changes in social norms, thoughts, the behavior of the youth population and the organized private sector on issues of greed, selfishness, corruption, hard work, integrity, patriotism, life and success, among others.
Develop citizens’ awareness and direct their attention to specific and relatable examples of how their orientation, behavior and that of the organized private sector is contributing to corruption and decay in the Nigerian society, thus empowering them towards a redirection of their actions and mindset.
Reorient the mind-set of the youths and encourage role modeling of the right behaviors by sharing real-life stories of young Nigerians who through dedication, hard work, integrity, patriotism, and perseverance have achieved success.
Spotlight and empower trendsetters to drive behavioral change.
