Integrity Icon Niger is a national movement that happens on the ground, online and through the media. Its goal is to identify and celebrate honest public servants in public administration. Its goal is to generate a constructive conversation about integrity and accountability and to build a network of public servants who can fight for accountability. The Integrity Icon Project brings integrity to the forefront of the public to enable citizens to question the status quo and support changes in behaviour that can improve people’s lives.
Niger’s 2020 Integrity Icons are an incredible group of men and women who represent the best of the country’s public service. They are Police Inspector Madame Yahaya Mari Da Silva, who works at the Regional Directorate of the National Police (DRPN) in Zinder; Magistrate Djafara Seini at the Tribunal de Grande Instance (TGI) in the city of Tahouna; schoolteachers Madame Adam Salmey Issoufou and Grema Boukar from Zinder and Diffa, and the Director of Women’s Promotion and Child Protection in Dosso, Madame Badarou Mariama.
The team is also involved in youth training and workshops with young civil servants.
