5 PERCENT REWARD
This policy if well understood by Nigerians would make Nigerians to become participants in the fight against corruption. As the case is right now, I am not sure that most Nigerians are aware of the fact that the whistle blowing policy includes up to 5 PERCENT REWARD OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF LOOTS RECOVERED.
There is no way somebody will steal government money of this magnitude without someone else being aware. It is also true that most people who steal are driven by greed, same with the accomplices. In most cases the accomplices are never paid the promised amount, while in other cases they wish to get more than they were promised. It is this despicable human nature that the government and NGOs that are interested in fighting corruption must leverage upon, to spread the word, so that each person that is aware of such evils would be able to speak up.
“Where do the evils like corruption arise from? It comes from the never-ending greed. The fight for corruption-free ethical society will have to be fought against this greed and replace it with ‘what can I give’ spirit.” A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
People must be told that they could become anti-graft agents as citizens. More so, information that could be reported is not limited to stolen funds alone.
FROM THE FLYING NEWS: WHISTLE BLOWERS ARE THE LATEST BILLIONAIRES IN TOWN:

We (EFCC) have been receiving more whistle blowing information since Andrew Yakubu raid, we will attend to all and we are aware of those hurriedly relocating their loots but unfortunately those helping them in the relocations are updating us. Blow a whistle today and receive an instant 5% of the loots from FG.- EFCC
“In you are people who accept bribes to shed blood; you take interest and make a profit from the poor. You extort unjust gain from your neighbors. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign Lord.” Ezekiel 22:12
CITIZENS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT
Citizens are encouraged to report:
1. All forms of mismanagement and misappropriation of public funds and assets
2. Misuse of government properties and vehicles, etc.
3. Financial malpractices of any kind.
4. Any form of fraud especially connected to the common wealth of the nation.
5. Collection or solicitation of bribes.
6. Diversion of payment and revenues.
7. Fraudulent and unapproved payments.
8. Misappropriation of contracts.
9. Kickbacks and over invoicing.
10. Any form of corruption in government or private sectors.
As earlier said, both government and civil societies will have to step up their campaign efforts to inform all Nigerians of their role in fighting corruption. Nigerians must know that building a corruption free society is a collective effort, not just a government responsibility.
We must inform the general public about the definition and the functions of a whistle blower. We must also let the people know that included in this policy is a protection clause. Meaning that the federal government guarantees and provides security and protection for anybody providing such information. More so the information could be provided incognito, that is the person’s identity will not be revealed publicly. This tells us that the government has done a lot from their part to carry Nigerians along and involve ordinary Nigerians in building a more chaste society.
“Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end they will prove to be fools.” Jeremiah 17:11
