0 17

Many analysts are of the view that corruption has eaten deep into Nigeria’s political system, portraying the country in a negative way before other nations of the world. To reverse this trend, president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration came up with whistleblower policy as a mechanism to check corrupt practices in the country. Whistleblowing policy launched on December 21, 2016 by the Federal Government encourages Nigerians to report to the anti-graft agencies any form of wrongdoings ranging from fraud, bribery and other corrupt practices. Five years after its introduction, Nigerians are divided on whether the policy is playing any major role in the fight against corruption in the country. Channel Network Afrique went to town to sample people’s opinions on how the policy has positively impacted on the war against corruption in the country. Timothy Nwachukwu however have a contrary opinion as he applauded the role initiated by the policy leading to the recovery of huge sums of money at an apartment in Lagos. For those who criticised the policy,they insist that it has suffered poor implementation leading to lost of trust by the citizens. Information from the federal government indicates that whistleblowers are entitled to 2.5% to 5% from the recovered funds.
