Funded by the European Union, the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC) Programme is working to strengthen the application of law and curb corruption. We work at the federal level and in five focal states: Adamawa, Anambra, Edo, Kano, and Lagos. 

RoLAC focuses on:

  • reforming the criminal justice system
  • ensuring women, children and people with disabilities have access to justice
  • improving the performance of anti-corruption agencies and how they work together
  • enhancing the voice of Nigerians in curbing corruption.

This programme was launched in 2017.
