The absence of logical reasoning in the implementation of anti-corruption measures has exerted a significant influence, leading to misguided anti-corruption endeavours in nations such as Nigeria. The objective of this study is to discern the underlying rationale behind anti-corruption systems and ascertain their impact on the occurrence of corruption in the context of project planning and execution (PPE) within Nigeria. The research formulated a theoretical framework that classified the anti-corruption measures into three distinct systems and elucidated their underlying rationale. The model postulates that anti-corruption measures that exhibit a significant influence on corruption in the realm of PPE are those that prioritise the enhancement of reputation and remuneration. The hypotheses were extracted from the model and subjected to testing through the utilisation of multiple linear regression (MLR). The efficacy of all the classifications of anti-corruption systems was determined to be inadequate in mitigating the occurrence of bribery, fraud, and substandard documentation. The empirical findings indicate that the expansion of information access exhibits a robust logical framework and exerts a substantial influence on the prevalence of corruption within the realm of PPE in Nigeria. The results of this study propose a potential strategy for an anti-graft campaign and provide insights into the importance of consolidation.
