The Federal Government on Thursday said that it had recovered about N605bn through the implementation of the whistleblower policy.
Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, the Minister of Finance, disclosed this during a media briefing on the activities of the ministry.
The whistleblower policy which was inaugurated in December 2016, was aimed at addressing the issues of corruption in the management of government resources
Ahmed described the whistleblower policy as a huge success, adding that the N605bn so far recovered was an improvement over the amount previously recorded.
“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 N605bn.
“This is an improvement over the last amount that was reported.”
