Bureau of Public Service

“I confirm with delight that our Agency, NEITI came second, behind only the Bureau of Public Service.

Management and Staff

“On behalf of the NSWG, Management and Staff, I have accepted the result with high expectations that we work harder to be second to none in future ranking,” Orji added.

He said the independent ranking was in recognition of NEITI’s efforts in the last one year to strengthen our processes, invest more, not only on competency and skills development but also on ethical compliance, value re-orientation and training programme.

Orji, however, said that the achievement was not by NEITI alone, rather a collaboration of the stakeholders engaging in the NEITI process.

“Let us all continue to push the boundaries of transparency and accountability for greater achievement in the governance of Nigeria’s extractive sector.

“I dedicate the honour to our multi-stakeholders represented by our board, the founders of NEITI who laid the solid foundation for our agency to remain an island of excellence, competence and integrity.

Executive Secretary

“All I have done as the Executive Secretary in managing the secretariat in the last year with their support was to identify potential gaps for possible relapse in our core values and fix them.

“Further strengthening our processes to resist the challenges of today and consolidate on what already exists,” he added.

Public Private Partnership Development Centre

The ranking was verified by the coalition of civil society organisations comprising the Public Private Partnership Development Centre, International Centre for Investigative Reporting, Budgit, Basic Rights Watch, Media Rights Agenda, and the Rights to Know (R2K) among others.
