Onyinye Ough is a Nigerian international development practitioner specializing in anti-corruption and service delivery. Onyinye recognized that there was a problem in Nigeria with many corrupt practices having become culturally acceptable and sought to put together a series of books for children to help educate them on the impact of corruption. In 2018 she established the Nigerian based Non-Government Organisation 'Step Up for Social Development and Empowerment' (Step Up Nigeria) with the aim to help strengthen accountability on government delivery and tackle some of the corruption challenges. In 2020, her first book Emeka's Money was turned into a short animated film for children.
