The idea was part of the resolutions reached at the end of the consultative meeting by the Network of Anti-Corruption Institutions in West Africa (NACIWA) to develop faculties for training on CRA which held at the headquarters of ECOWAS Commission in Abuja.

The Director, Political Affairs of the sub-regional body, Dr. Remi Ajibewa, represented by the Head, Democracy and Good Governance Division, Eyesan Okorodudu, stressed the adoption of preventive approach such as CRA for a successful anti-graft fight.
