Flag’It is a mobile and web based App developed by the Akin Fadeyi Foundation which empowers citizens to report corruption, demand for accountability and excellent service delivery from government institutions.
Our widely reported major milestone was the onboarding of the Federal Road Safety Commission onboard Flag’It to enable Nigerians and residents of the country report incidences of corruption and get them resolved. The App also allows citizens to document their positive encounters with credible government Officials. Interestingly, we have also received Rape and Sexual Offenders report through the encouragement and confidence-boosting capacity of the Flag’ItApp, which was launched on the 10th of October and has crossed the 1,000 downloads milestone as citizens are developing trust and confidenceto send in reports with their cases being resolved promptly.We are currently working to get other government agencies on board in 2020. The Not In My Country Project is enabling citizens behavioral change and its acceptance by citizens aided a riveting effect and seamless acceptance of the FlagItApp.
