FG Have Tips From 2,500 Whistle Blowers – Kemi Adeosun


As the issue of whistle blowing keeps generating the topics in the nation and the reward that comes with it, the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, said the Federal Government  had got more than 2,500 tips that could lead  to loot recovery and blocking of leakages.

Adeosun said this during a town hall meeting in Abuja in Tuesday where other ministers took turns to highlight the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

They concluded that the anti-corruption war was succeeding.

Adeosun said, “On the other measures we are using to fight corruption, apart from the TSA (Treasury Single Account), you all know about the whistle-blower policy, which has helped to make every Nigerian a detective. As we know, the policy says if you know something, say something and patriotic Nigerians are now saying a lot of things.

“We have over 2,500 tips from various quarters. They are not just the big monies that we see in the papers, but the other monies, like someone diverting the money of a university. We go in there and we stop it. I think the fight against corruption is the people’s fight.

“Note that not all the whistle-blowers are looking for rewards. Some are just patriotic citizens. Now that everyone has embraced the policy, this has become a national fight against corruption.

“On the issue of ghost workers, we are removing dead people from the payroll every week. We are blocking loopholes such that people taking the salaries of 10 or 20 people can no longer do that. We have also been able to create more employment by flushing out the ghost workers.”
