The Minister of Finance has disclosed that the Government has earned about N605bn so far from the whistle blower policy.
Hajiya Zainab Ahmed made this known during a briefing on the ministry’s activities in Abuja, on Thursday.
Recall that the whistleblower policy is an anti-corruption programme that was launched in December 2016. It encourages individuals to report cases of financial mismanagement or stolen funds.
As of the end of 2018, government had recovered over N540 billion.
The finance minister described the whistleblower policy as a huge success, adding that the programme was ongoing.
“The whistleblower policy of government subsists and it is still being implemented. The total amount of collection that has been made through various efforts in the whistleblower policy is about N605 billion,” she said.
