About the webinar

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been instrumental in prosecuting corrupt leaders, businessmen and recovering stolen funds. Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) research found 568 corruption prosecutions were completed by EFCC between 2010 and 2015. Despite these initial successes, there are now concerns that the EFCC has evolved into a ‘debt collection agency’, which has affected their ability to serve as an anti-corruption agency. Led by SOAS University of London – with consortium partner’s including the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), the (ACE) Research Consortium published a series of research reports in 2020 evaluating the EFCC. This webinar aims to share the key findings of this research with relevant policymakers within Nigeria’s anti-corruption ecosystem to help drive the uptake of important judicial and procedural reforms and to restore public confidence in the Nigerian civil dispute settlement systems.
