Mitigating the Risk of Corruption for Businesses

Corruption is pervasive in Nigeria, yet businesses are unaware of the actual cost of corruption to their businesses. Corruption increases the cost of doing business by 10 per cent on average and over $1 trillion is paid in bribes annually. Business experience loss of revenue due to kickbacks and bribes at multiple levels; they pay higher taxes due to inefficiencies and lack of transparency; high risk of investment due to lack of transparency in public and legal systems; inability to compete globally and attract global partners and investors, become easy target for corruption. Most businesses are doing nothing and don’t even know what to do about it.

The IoD Centre for Corporate Governance with support from the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) are now offering practical training and services on how to mitigate corruption risks, setting up effective anti-corruption compliance system, corruption risk assessment and strengthening business ethics and integrity.
