The likes of M.I. Abaga, Alex Ekubo, Osas Igodaro, Lillian Esoro, Jeff Bankz and other celebrities are encouraging Nigerians to live through a day by:

  • Offering NO bribes
  • Taking NO bribes
  • NOT abusing power
  • NOT skipping process with influence.
  • Reporting Fraud

The 24-hour #NoCorruptionDay challenge encourages everyone to commit to avoiding at least five corrupt things they normally do and as such attempt to alter the corruption narrative across the board.

That’s why #NoCorruptionDay is trending.

They’ve used their platforms to share this powerful message, and activities centred around #NoCorruptionDay are geared towards tackling corruption through mindset reorientation.

In 2019, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) undertook a survey aimed at uncovering the different social norms in the Nigerian society that influence social and individual, moral judgments on corrupt behaviour. The survey birthed the Anti-Corruption Social Norms Report.

The report discovered that:

  • 40% of respondents do not believe in the possibility of successfully ending corruption in Nigeria.
  • 43.3 % do not believe they have a role to play in the change since corruption has become a Nigerian norm.
  • 71% of research respondents depended on social media to reset social norms and get information.

Now, what are Nigerians saying about corruption in Nigeria? Let’s find out.
