They could be restricting economic policies or simply bodies set up as media of sabotage. It is in this light that we investigate a seemingly faceless entity going by the name of ‘Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation’. This investigation is neither a witch-hunt nor slander of the identity of any soon-to-exist or existing entity, but an inquiry into the authenticity of their identity.
Who is 'Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation'?
In a time when Nigerians are running lucrative businesses in different sectors and are making moves to dominate industries on both national and global scales, one will often come across stumbling blocks, appearing in many forms.
A certain person, persons or entity going by the name ‘Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation’ has over time written petitions to the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) about organizations in Nigeria (names withheld for legal and privacy purposes), asking that the commission take out time to probe and investigate allegedly fraudulent operations of these legally registered businesses.
While the name ‘Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation’ connotes a high sense of uprightness and justice, the entity appears to be a charade. Efforts have been made to reach out to the foundation for its cooperation in speeding up the investigation into the several allegations laid against several organizations. All efforts to reach the said foundation via its physical address at 130 Ikorodu Road, Anthony Village, Lagos, make it clear that they do not exist. Every running foundation is mandated to be registered and have trustees. But, their trustees cannot be found or reached as no such foundation has been registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC). The phone number written on their letterheads belongs to a banker (name withheld), who has gone on to disassociate himself from the establishment while internet searches to reach the entity also showed that they have no digital footprint.
This poses the question: does the ‘Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation’ actually exist? Could it be that this seemingly non-existent establishment, which is self-acclaimed as a tool of social justice and uprightness, is the exact opposite of its name and alleged mission? Does anyone know the brain(s) behind the Stop Corruption in Nigeria Foundation? Could this also be a faceless entity with a made-up name, set-up by a competitor to disrupt the effective function of honest work in Nigeria?
