The US-Nigeria Trade Council has endorsed the Flag’It app, a mobile application portal that allows Nigerians report cases of corruption.

The council, which specialises in facilitating trade and investment between both countries, said the app is an indication that Nigeria is moving in the direction of transparency.

The app was recently launched at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja by the Akin Fadeyi Foundation.

“We commend the Akin Fadeyi Foundation for developing such an innovative app, and thereby, empowering Nigerians to confront the endemic corruption in our social milieu,” a statement signed by Titus Olowokere, the council’s CEO, read.

“The Flag’It app which empowers Nigerians to report corruption is a commendable national reset agenda capable of bringing about a radical change that will enable the ease of doing business in Nigeria once citizens can report public officials who abuse their positions and also constitute a stumbling block within the process chain.”

Commending President Muhammadu Buhari and the MacArthur Foundation for supporting the project, the council urged the president to direct federal government institutions to come onboard the app.

“We hereby urge the President to direct other federal government institutions to begin onboarding the Flag’It App as this would signal to the global community that Nigeria was indeed serious and irrevocably committed to its fight against institutional corruption in the country,” the council said.

“For us at the trade council, the Flag’It App is a robust complement to the existing national anti-corruption efforts of the Buhari administration and we call on this government to tap into the opportunities.”

The council also commended Boboye Oyeyemi, corps marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC), for being the first government agency to come onboard the app.

According to the statement, there have been 14 reported cases on the app and seven have been treated.
