Graft and Corruption cases are rife in Africa. In most African countries, if not all, corruption cases keep soaring to higher heights and evidential cases are seen and reported in the judiciary, the police service, public service, customs administration, public procurement, tax system, civil society, land administration and management of natural resources. Monies that could have been used for development is misappropriated by a few individuals entrusted with the nation’s resources, who are mainly political appointees and their cronies. The result is a country with so much inequalities and gap between the rich and the poor; poor roads and infrastructure; road accidents; women marginalization and gender inequalities; abject poverty; schools in dilapidated buildings and under trees; school dropouts; street children; prevalence of diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS; water pollution and scarcity; energy crisis; degradation of natural resources and poor healthcare policies.
At Centre for Better Society Advocacy and Research Africa (CEBSAR-Africa), we believe that in order to achieve a better society fair and just for all Africans, addressing the issue of corruption would be a major step towards creating the change we need. When we combat corruption, monies will be channeled to projects and their impacts maximized to improve service delivery and in turn improve living standards. We plan to achieve our goal by targeting senior High School, college and university students, and creating awareness on the detriments of corruption to the society. We are targeting the young generation because we believe that these are people who will grow to become presidents, ministers, legislators, members of Parliament, professors, teachers, nurses, engineers, doctors, manning affairs of their respective countries. Reaching out to them on campus ensure that we have quality leaders in future.
A thoughtful research and evidence-based advocacy for social transformation on corruption and providing alternative sustainable options to the future of Africa’s democracy and governance.
To be committed to rapid transformation towards a sustainable path of accountability and transparency where citizens are aware of their roles and responsibilities to help build resilient and better society in Africa.
