20 Whistleblowers Receive N375.8m from FG



Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun

Twenty Whistleblowers whose information led to the recovery of N11.6bn, have received N375.8m, the Federal Government has said.

Punch reports that the disclosure was made in a statement released by Salisu Dambatta, the Director of Information, Ministry of Finance. Dambatta said that the payment was only for recovered assets that were declared free of legal disputes by the Attorney-General of the Federation.

“This payment which was the first under the Whistleblower Policy underscores the commitment of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration in meeting obligations to information providers under the Whistleblower Policy. The Ministry, therefore, encourages all Nigerians with information on misconduct, violation or improper activity which can impact negatively on Nigeria to report it to the appropriate authority,” the statement said.

Dambatta said that taxes had been removed before the final payments to the beneficiaries were made.

    Wao! That is on average N18 million per each of the 20 persons that the FG has paid. Which job in Nigeria does anyone receives N18 million a year or in five years as an aggregate? I am resigning to be a Whistleblower

    Sigh, Herd Mentality. People follow aimlessly without knowing what they truly want for themselves. Weak individuals dictated by a flawed society. Focus on your work and be content.

    Whistle blowing has now become a full time gig…but at 5% reward for every 1 billion recovered, that is one hell of an incentive. It is a retirement income. If I were the Political Class, I will disengage effectively, all my house hold staff. They now constitute a clear and present danger to LOOTING.

    Time to come and teach a course on whistle blowing. Welcome to CHANGE

    Blunt truth is no one can prove this.

    If they said 10 people for a billion each, no one has prove to the contrary unless your involved in the fraud.

    They just want people to come out and snitch. The policy is not legal so they have no legal right to share anything.
