The Convention on Business Integrity in collaboration with the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) is set to host a roundtable session themed, "Towards Standard Operating Procedures That Work in Nigeria's Sea Ports & Terminals" on Tuesday, October 8th, 2019.


The Convention on Business Integrity (CBI), a Company Limited by Guarantee is the private sector facing arm of the Integrity organisation. CBi was launched in October 1997 and incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in May 2003. The organization was established with the mission of promoting ethical business Practices, transparency and fair competition in the private and public sectors. It builds coalitions and develops sustainable strategies for citizen involvement with government in both sectors.



In 2012, the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), a global business network working towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Technical Unit on Government and Anti-Corruption Reforms (TUGAR) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) commissioned a corruption risk assessment (CRA) in the Nigerian port sector.


The assessment set out to understand the main drivers of corruption in the sector, identify specific measures for addressing such drivers, and catalyze action among public and private sector stakeholders.


The Corruption risk assessment report made specific recommendations for action to eliminate corruption in the Nigerian port sector. Amongst the recommendations was a proposal for Ethics Training and Capacity-building programs to strengthen transparency and accountability of port stakeholders.


As part of its collective action programme, MACN in 2016 contracted the Convention on Business Integrity (CBI) to lead the training of Ports officials on Professional Ethics. Pursuant to this, the Convention on Business Integrity (CBI) conducted a round of Training of Trainers (TOTs) in Lagos (Apapa and Tin-Can Island ports) Port Harcourt (Onne and Rivers Port Complex) and Calabar port between 2016 and May 2017. Thereafter, an end user training was conducted for over 1000 stakeholders in the Ports between November 2017 and March 2018.


Specifically, the objective of this MACN event is to launch a series of interventions aimed at promoting transparency and consistent application of Standard Operating Procedures leading to more predictable (in time and cost) vessel and cargo clearance at the Ports & Terminals. Stakeholders at the event would also have an opportunity to be part of ongoing collective action to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our ports and terminals.
