TransparencIT wins $20,000 World Justice Project award

The World Justice Project based in Washington, D.C. has awarded a $20,000 (about N8.4 million) World Justice Challenge 2022 prize for Anti-Corruption and Open Government to Nigeria’s Transparency Information Technology Initiative (TransparencIT).

The company got the prize for its project, dubbed Trial Monitoring of Corruption Cases: Creating Monitoring Systems, an Online Corruption Database, and Special Anti-Corruption Courts.

The World Justice Chief Communication Officer (CCO) Tanya Weinberg said this in a statement yesterday in Kaduna.

“Corruption is Nigeria’s greatest obstacle to economic development and often goes unpunished due to slow dispensation of justice and corruption within the justice system.

“TranparencIT’s Trial Monitoring of Corruption Cases project has helped reduce the average duration of corruption trials from eight years to between three and four years.

“The organization is equally successfully advocating special anti-corruption courts that are even speedier,” she said.
