The Centre for Media, Policy and Accountability (CMPA) yesterday charged reporters covering anti-corruption agencies to support the implementation of the Nigeria Anti-Corruption Performance Public Reporting (NAPPR) project.
Speaking in Abuja at a training session, Executive Director of CMPA and Project Manager, Dr Suleiman A. Suleiman, said there are disparities in reporting anti-corruption cases by the media organisations.
He attributed this to absence of a harmonized reporting template.
He said, “At the end of NAPPR project, we will produce a harmonized reporting template for media and the anti-corruption agencies.”

Also, the Director of Strategic Communications, Outreach and Advocacy, CMPA, Ibrahim Yusuf, said the session brought over 25 journalists together from broadcast, print and online media to champion the anti-graft advocacy in the country.
The CMPA is an independent non-profit organisation incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission in 2022.
The NAPPR is a project funded by MacArthur Foundation and implemented by CMPA 2023-2024.
It focuses on anti-corruption, research, public policy analysis, transparency and accountability to strengthen social, economic and democratic governance in Nigeria.
