Signature Communication Ltd, owners of Signature TV, on Thursday, unveiled season 4 of its popular television program, Corruption Tori, in Abuja.
The Chief Executive Officer of Signature TV Vinmartin Ilo said it was a deliberate strategy targeted at the young generation to end corruption in Nigeria.
Ilo said, “Targeting young children was an intentional strategy for us, working with McArthur, because we know that if we catch them young, children have a lot of influence; they would impact their parents, friends, and neighbours, but more importantly, they will start the journey and they will run with this campaign, and that is what is happening.
“As we speak today, we have 20 anti-corruption school clubs, we have more than 3 years of an uninterrupted essay competition for secondary schools, we’ve had our town halls everywhere, and see local women that we’ve interacted with, that we have tried to mentor in this campaign, organised office holders and office seekers, and hold them to account for the first time and ask them, what did you promise and how are you keeping the promise? That is one of the biggest achievements of this campaign.
Corruption Tori is an anti-corruption television program produced in Pidgin English Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba and supported by the MacArthur Foundation.
The theme for season 4, MAKE YOU NO TAYA FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION, WE GO WIN AM encapsulates the objective to keep the fire of the war on corruption burring by encouraging the citizens to keep their fingers on the trigger.
The Launch of Season 4 of Corruption Tori was held in a community setting among young people at the Government Junior Secondary School Mpape.
The project which started over four years ago and is supported by the MacArthur Foundation collaborates with anti-graft agencies and other nongovernmental organizations involved in the war against corruption.
On July 5th 2022, Corruption Tori unveiled Season 3 with the theme “Carry the Fight Against corruption for your head, na you get am” which is aimed at mobilizing and recruiting more rural Nigerians into the anti-corruption vanguard.
