Speaking on behalf of the Nigerian government on Sunday in a statement issued by Segun Adeyemi, his spokesman, Lai Mohammad, minister of information and culture, said the whistle blower policy is working and has led to the recovery of more looted funds in many currencies.

He lauded the anti-graft agency and the whistle-blower policy, describing it as an effective tool of fighting corruption in Nigeria.

In the statement, Mr. Mohammed assured that all the recovered looted funds were safe and government will give full account to Nigerians.

The minister thanked Nigerians for their enthusiasm and commitment in helping the government to tackle corruption through disclosure of useful leads to appropriate government agencies.

“Since we launched the whistle blower policy, we have received immeasurable support from Nigerians.

“Yes, there is monetary reward for any information that leads to recovery of looted funds, but from what we have seen, most of the Nigerians who have come forward with useful leads were driven by patriotism rather than reward.

“Nigerians, fired by a fervid resolve to help banish corruption from their country, have daily inundated the offices of the appropriate government agencies with valuable information.

“We have been told how looters have resorted to burying stolen funds in their backyards, in deep forests and even in burial grounds.

” Thanks to whistle-blowers, it is now clear that a rapacious few have pillaged the nation’s wealth through a vicious orgy of corrupt practices,” he said.
