The senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla, has announced launch of DoroCorruption anti-corruption application.

Obono-Obla, while speaking in Abuja during the launch of DoroCorruption, stated that lack of adequate information from the public was stalling efforts by the government to recover assets.

He said the anti-corruption fight can only succeed when Nigerians speak out and refuse to condone the act which he described as an ill-wind that would bring no good.

“My panel will investigate assets of public officers, but have you given us information on public officers who have assets that are beyond their legitimate earnings?

“We know them. Most of the buildings in Abuja are owned by directors in public service. How much are they earning? You know these people, they are your neighbours and you don’t give us information. How then do we help government fight corruption?”

“We need the support of civil society, the civil society should assist the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) in getting information on those that have properties abroad but don’t pay tax in Nigeria. This would help in taming corruption in the country.”

The DoroCorruption mobile app is a purpose-built software that informs Nigerians about the latest trends in the anti-corruption sphere, as well as giving members of the public and private sectors an avenue to conveniently report cases of corruption.
