Nigeria will host finance and justice ministers from other countries at the international conference on Illicit Financial Flows (IFF), which will hold next week.

The two-day conference, which will hold both physically and virtually, on Tuesday and Wednesday, is jointly organised by Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Inter-Agency Committee on Stopping IFFs from Nigeria, African Union Advisory Board on Corruption (AUABC), and the Coalition for Dialogue on Africa (CoDA).

According to a statement issued by the spokesperson of the ICPC, Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Dr. (Mrs.) Zainab Ahmed, will give a keynote address at the conference.

The international conference will receive goodwill messages from Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami; Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, and African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security, Ambassador Bankole Adeoye.

The highlight of the international conference is the consideration of four broad themes during the plenary sessions with key presentations, discussions, and questions and answers with participants by notable personalities such as Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu, Senior Adviser to the President on Justice Sector Reform.

The high-level international conference is expected to draw participants from public and private sectors, civil society organisations, academia, and media practitioners from Africa and the Western Countries, among others.
