The Presidency says it would strengthen the mechanism of the whistle-blower policy, following breakthroughs in the war against corruption and unaccounted wealth.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this to State House correspondents on Wednesday in Abuja.
The president’s aide said the government is considering ways of enhancing the structural capacity of the whistle-blower mechanism.
”The government is considering empowering the mechanism by either bringing it under the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PCAC) or some other body to imbue the process with a strategic national purpose.”
”In a word, government thinks that the whistle-blower mechanism is too important to be left without a strategic, national direction,’’ he said.
He noted that the enthusiastic response of Nigerians to the policy has boosted the tempo of the anti-corruption crusade of the Buhari administration.
