Transparency International debunks news of Open Letter to Nigeria
May 18 , 2012
Files included:


As Nigerian workers celebrated Workers’ Day in the beginning of May, the local media was saturated with news of an Open Letter sent to the Nigerian President by Transparency International.

Wikicolumn learned this week that the news is false.

In an email correspondence with Transparency International Communications Officer, Sophie Brown, we learned that no Open Letter was sent to the Nigerian President ”Nor are we represented by a law firm by the name Fitch, Fitch, Fitch & Associates”, Brown added.

Here’s a snapshot of the email reply from Sophie Brown after we contacted Transparency International’s head office in Berlin.

While there was no original publication of the said ”Open Letter” on the official website of Transparency International, excerpts from the letter were published by a number of local dailies.

WikiColumn has notified some of the local dailies that published the report in early May of this development.
