8,000 Whistle Blowers Recorded In One Year
Nigerians do not joke with opportunities. As long as it guarantees some extra legitimate cash, they are willing to take on the hustle.
We knew what could happen when the federal government introduced its whistle blowing policy.
It's been one year now and we are not disappointed.
The whistle blower’s policy has succeeded resoundingly as no fewer than 8,000 whistles were blown by the Federal Government in the last one year.
The Executive Secretary of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Bolaji Owasonoye, said this in New York.
“Just a few weeks ago, PACAC, in collaboration with Federal Ministry of Finance, looked at one year of that policy.
“We looked at what has worked, where it has not worked very well, what we can improve, and it came there that the policy has been resoundingly successful.
“That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t review where we were, which was what we were doing at that event. Over 8,000 whistles received, some of it have yielded very good results.
“We also looked at the fact that the policy is not directed at pursuing cash recoveries only. But at mis-governance, abuse of power, position, violation of regulations and all that. The policy covers everything”.
The scribe said the policy had been a stop-gap measure, pending the time it gets a legislation.
