Its citizens are labeled in other countries as fraudsters, the country is viewed as very corrupt and institutions are tagged as inept dysfunctional, all due to economic and financial crimes. In order to complement the policies of the Federal Government of Nigeria, we, a few professionals with relevant experience decided to form the Center for Counter Fraud Awareness.
