Frequently Asked Questions

How does the platform work?

Propati Tracka website is developed to enable citizens’ map and share information of property illegally acquired by politically exposed persons and civil servants. It works in a way that allow users create account with a username, email and password.  When a user click the “Register to Submit Property” button, it navigates to a page where they can either create an account, login or reset password as the case may be. Once a user register with a username and email, the website automatically sends a login link to your email inbox or spam.

When the link is clicked, it redirects back to propati tracka website where the user can now enter a unique password that will enable access to the created profile whenever the user choose to login and send a report. This one-time link expires in 24hours if not used to set a password. When the password is confirmed Ok, it shows that the user is logged in and can then send a report to the website. The user can now go ahead to click the “submit report” button to fill the reporting template and hit the save button to send his/her report.

When a report hits the platform, it becomes inactive and unpublished for citizens to view and read until the site admin hits publish after the report has been verified with the relevant agencies. When the verification processes has been completed, such report can now be made public for everyone to access and share via social media handles.

In reporting a property, user must make sure that a correct address/entire information is provided. If the correct address is provided, the website automatically picks it up from google map and indicates the exact location with a red pointer for easy identification.

PROJECT BACKGROUND 

 Nigeria, like many other countries in Africa suffers severe leakage of its public resources through corrupt means. Public funds that could be better used to address critical sectors for national development, such as on health, education, electricity, roads, and other infrastructural projects for the social, political and economic well-being of the country are diverted by some Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and Civil Servants. The Proceeds of such crimes are often times hidden in foreign safe havens abroad or are used for the acquisition of private property within and outside Nigeria.

As a direct response to the situation, the project entitled “Tackling corruption through improving transparency in property ownership” was designed. One of the objectives of the project is to promote relevant policies that limit the capacity of politically exposed persons and their collaborators to acquire property with proceed of crime and through corrupt practices.

The goal of the project is to unmask the beneficial owners of property in three highbrow districts of Abuja namely: Maitama, Asokoro and Wuse as well as encourage the Nigerian government to adopt the non-conviction approach to tackling corruption and channel proceeds of seized property to finance development in Nigeria.

  • To build the capacity of target CSOs and Media on the concept of beneficial ownership and its utilization to hide ill-gotten proceeds through ownership of Landed property with building(s) in Abuja and how they can use the knowledge to influence policy space by end of project
  • Promote relevant policies that limit the capacities of politically exposed persons to acquire property with proceeds of crime/through corrupt practices.
  • To develop an on-line platform to map and share information on ownership of property by politically exposed persons in specific districts of Abuja

Proposed outcome

  • Enhanced capacity of 30 persons on the concept of beneficial ownership and how to generate information/data for the platform
  •  Clear policy recommendations on property ownership declaration for implementation by the relevant government agencies through advocacy to get recommendations adopted (such as declaration of the names of owners of companies where these are not owned individually, for example)
  • Increased pressure on anti-corruption agencies by citizen to investigate property owners based on the information generated by an online platform
  • Increased public consciousness on the dangers of stealing public funds to acquire property, which could deter Nigerians PEPs from using Abuja property as destination for corruptly acquired wealth.
  • Contribute to reduction in number of public servants who invest looted assets in Abuja property
