ABOUT

WHO WE ARE:
We are a group of active citizens that work to promote “Integrity In Service” through H.I.M strategy.

-Honesty
-Integrity
-Modesty

Nigeria is confronting unpresidented corruption issues that need urgent system overhaul. Therefore, as concerned citizens, we strongly believe that instituting H.I.M strategy in national consciousness will build stronger systems that drives national development.

It is a fact that integrity is the cornerstone of good governance. And Trust is said to develop where leaders do what is right and fair by acting responsibily in public interest. And where there is trust there is loyalty to the nation.

BCO fostering integrity to prevent corruption,  promote good governance and build a better nation.

WHAT WE DO:
In the course of promoting our work, we have taken on countless fights for social justice, we have engaged, advised, debated policy makers for social inclusion. We have demanded, protested and occupied institutions that we felt are failing.  And we have taken head-on some powerful and very corrupt politicians.

And we have petitioned and sued some corporations behaving badly.

We have also found ourselves facilitating public understanding of the threat posed to human rights and national development due to lack of integrity in service.

HOW WE DO IT?
*We actively write and police public officers for misconduct.

*We promote civic responsibility by commendations, recognition and publication

*We advocate for system change to tighten loopholes that encourage misconduct in office and in public

*We carry out educational awareness on ethics and misconduct

* We research and help state actors design integrity framework that relies on a flexible balancing of rules-based and values-based approaches

*We create programs that educate the general public and help citizens make informed decisions about executive actions or inactions, legislative decisions and Judiciary outcomes.

*We act as bridge between the people and the government through  periodic feedbacks, press releases and reporting on people’s  reactions to specific community issues.

*We design what public sector stands for and what is required to remove and how it is to be implemented.

BCO DEFINITION OF INTEGRITY:
It refers to the actual behavior of actors involved in decision making and implementation processes but deals strictly with set standard of conducts or ethics of leadership. Those set of moral values and norms that set public servant as servants of public.

INTEGRITY MEASURE:
Integrity measures both what and how policy is designed and delivered. Not focusing only on their efficiency and effectiveness. It sort of broadens the scope of public services quality.

Unlike corruption that is merely characterized by “the misuse of public office, roles or resources, for private benefits (material or otherwise)” (OECD, 1996:13). But integrity is much more than that. Integrity is more positive and demanding than corruption.

Unlike corruption that is merely characterized by “the misuse of public office, roles or resources, for private benefits (material or otherwise)” (OECD, 1996:13). But integrity is much more than that. Integrity turns out to be more positive and demanding than corruption.
