  • Educating and enlightening their MDAs on corruption and related offences
  • Promote Ethics and Integrity through ensuring adherence to rules, regulation and upholding and enforcing compliance and Ethical Codes in MDAs
  • Monitor Budget Implementation in MDAs
  • Conduct preliminary/administrative investigation when necessary
  • Undertake the study and review of Operational systems of MDAs with a view to improving transparency and accountability


The mission of the Unit which is in line with that of its parent body-the ICPC is: to rid Nigeria of corruption through lawful enforcement and preventive measures. 


Its vision is a Nigeria free from all forms of corruption and corrupt practices.
